Bionic’s Olympian pedi nail art

by Bionic Beauty on February 25, 2010 · 15 comments

I got into the Olympic spirit these last few weeks and decided an Olympic themed-pedicure would help even further. I used Vancouver’s Olympic color scheme of greens, blues, whites and teals blended with arches, mountains, a various other graphics. Of course, since toe nails aren’t the largest canvas out there, things came out a bit squishy… but I think you still get the idea due to the colors.

Bionic Beauty Asks - Makeup and beauty question blog article series
In the majority of locations, winter translates to closed toe shoes, boots, thick socks and slippers. This week’s Bionic Asks When you feet are covered constantly do you bother to keep your toe nails painted?

I’ve been painting my toes since I was in high school. It’s habit for me, and a relaxing ritual that I happily indulge. I consider my toe nails small canvases waiting for artwork… so they stay polished year round. I do try to give them a “break” for two weeks every few months; outside of that, I’m always anxious to try a new nail polish color!

This week’s Bionic Asks Will you be creating a special makeup look this holiday season? Maybe you are headed to a work party, or a family dinner, or out for New Year’s Eve. Whatever the case, the holidays give us a chance to play a bit with makeup.

Wear an extra sparkly brow highlight, a shimmery bronzer on your cheeks, or even some fine glitter sprinkled in your hair. Just be sure not to overdose on the bling-factor. If your dress is sparkly, stay with a matte eyeliner but adding a shiny lipgloss would still be fine. Amp up your little black dress with a smokey gel eyeliner (like Black Cherry from Purely Cosmetics or Pencil Me In’s eye liners in Champagne Sparks or Emerald City) that has some extra shine- it’ll really make your eyes pop!

So, I’m calling all the Bionic Beauties out there… what are your tips for holiday makeup looks and what will you be wearing this season?

Vote now in the Bionic Beauty pollI’ve launched a new poll on Bionic Beauty. Are you planning a special a makeup look for the holidays?

Whether you have the social calendar that rivals Paris Hilton or plan to lay low this holiday, I want to know if you’ll be creating a special makeup look. Perhaps for an office party, a night on the town with friends, or sitting by TV with your significant other. Extra sparkles in your eyeshadow, or a deeper red lip… stepping away from your traditional makeup can be fun this time of year. Cooler weather seems to let our creative makeup side run a bit wilder. We can use bolder shades and looks than what we’d normally wear.

The new poll is available in the right sidebar of Bionic Beauty (under the appropriately labeled “Polls” section), so go on… and vote! And feel free to leave your comments below.

Below are the results of the previous Bionic Beauty poll…
