When athletes compete at the Olympics, their countries’ uniforms serve to unite the whole team, provide some visual continuity, and of course make it easy to tell who’s from where. However, it seems like this year, athletes are making an extra effort to individualize their looks and stand out a little bit. I'm sure everyone has noticed the patriotic nail craze that athletes are sporting. Take a look
SWIMMING - Rebecca Adlington of Great Britain.
BEACH VOLLEYBALL - Marta Menegatti of Italy.
TRACK CYCLING - Joanna Rowsell of Great Britain.
TENNIS - Victoria Azarenka of Belarus.
HANDBALL - Britt Goodwin of Great Britain.
TENNIS - Laura Robson of Great Britain.
SWIMMING - Hanna-Maria Seppälä of Finland.
UK nail art guru Sophy Robson deserves a big chunk of the credit for the current patriotic nail craze. There are a series of nail salons through the Olympic athletes’ village where athletes and their families can get a patriotic mani. Robson designed two full pages of flag designs for every country imaginable.
