Polish Days - Olympics

Hi everyone!!  I have a second post for you today.  I recently jumped on the Polish Days bandwagon (for more details click on the link) and for today's event, we had to share an Olympic mani.  I had recently done an Olympic mani to share with Steph over at Imperfectly Painted and decided to use it for this post since nail art is still difficult for me.

For this mani, I did a splatter mani using the colors of the Olympics logo.  My base was Orly Au Champagne, a gorgeous matte white shimmer.  I then added blue (OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue), black (Nicka K Noir), red (Cult Nails Evil Queen), gold (Beauty UK Aztec), and green (Cult Nails Feelin' Froggy).  For my accent nail I used the same colors mentioned above and created rings with the edges of small straws to create the logo.  I then added polka dots around them.

I really liked the way this mani turned out.  It was so out of my comfort zone, but fun to look at.  I hope you guys like it also.  Let me know what you think!
