The 2012 Olympics have been so exciting, uplifting and inspirational to watch (as always!) Much to the dismay of my husband, we've been glued to our television since Sunday catching as many sports as we can. I should mention that I'm "one of those" who believes the louder you shout at the TV the more those athletes can actually hear you. It's even better when you have neighbors who think the same thing (phew!)

Fashionwise, one of my favorite things we've seen from London are all the fabulous and spirited manicures! Olympic Nails are the latest beauty trend and I wanted to share some cool nail art from those awesome athletes.


Rebecca Adlington of Great Britain shows off her country pride & bronze medal in the 400m Freestyle event


Missy Franklin's Wonder Woman like nails prove her love for America


Belarus cyclist Alena Amialiusik adds a touch of glitter to her red & green manicure


One of my favorite manicures yet, kayaker Caroline Queen spells USA with stars, stripes and glitter


The French flag is flying high on basketball star Emmeline Ndongue's nails


Volleyball teammate Destinee Hooker's nails pays homage to GB, the Olympics & the US while giving a shout out to her Mom & Dad


Of course if you're not yet ready to paint like an artist, you can't go wrong with a perfectly manicured solid color like road racer Elizabeth Armitstead who took home silver for Great Britain
