Bionic’s Olympian pedi nail art

by Bionic Beauty on 25.Feb.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.

My "Bionic" Olympian nail polish colors

So here it is…

The colors I used in order of application…

  1. Color Club matte nail polish in Ghost of a Chance (semi-matte white cream polish from the 2009 Halloween collection)
  2. Essie in Great Expectations (very, very light gray with very subtle shimmer)
  3. Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine in Glow (an “alien green” metallic frost – this is one of my favorite polishes ever!)
  4. Barry M in Mint Green (semi-translucent minty cream)
  5. Sally Hansen Salon in Honeydew (Spring 2009 Limited Edition “Tracy Reese” collection – Honeydew is a turquoise/teal with subtle silvery shimmer. Very pretty!)
  6. Color Club in Pure Energy (A neon blue with lots of duochrome shimmer, what more can you ask for?)
  7. China Glaze in Frostbite (a medium brilliant blue frost, available at most Sally Beauty stores)
  8. Sinful Colors in Pearl Harbor (clear polish with teal glitter flecks, available at Walgreens stores for $2.49)
  9. Super Dry top coat (My $1 bargain buy, super quickie dry top coat. It’s the best quick dry top coat I’ve ever tried, not the longest wearing but for nail art or a quick polish job, it’s the best. I found mine at a Dierberg’s grocery in St. Louis, MO.)
  10. Sally Hansen Nail Art pen in Silver (I suggest applying this after several hours, otherwise it pushes through the polish layers, and you end up with dents. Be SURE to apply a top coat after or it just rubs right off!)

Have you ever created nail polish art inspired by an event, artwork, sports team, movie, etc? And if you’ve been watching the Olympics, what has been your favorite part? (If you follow me on Twitter, you *know* my fave part is the Men’s Hockey and the fact that we are IN THE FINAL FOUR!! Ok, I’ll stop shouting now…)
