Sammy of The Nailasaurus created special Olympic Nails. Here is what she used.

I used Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Pacific Blue and Green With Envy, George@Asda Buttercup and an unnamed L’Oreal Red. I used the same colours for the rings on my thumb, plus W7 Black. All the details were painted with a striping brush and Black and White Acrylic Paint.
