NAIL FILES: Sweet’n’Raw’s Olympic Fingers

As much as I hate the classic “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve been really busy” lines, this time I’m gonna give you the “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I was in NYC and the wonderful W Hotel charges $20 plus tax for 24 hours of Wi-fi”. Anyway, I’m back and with a lot of posts lined up (that I prepared previously) and almost ready to be published. My NYC trip is something I’m gonna be saving for later, but since nowadays all we talk about is the 2012 London Olympic games, I just had to do this! It’s been a while since the last Nail Files series and what better inspiration than this huge sports event. I’m a sucker for the Summer Olympics, so here for you today, nail polish, London 2012 style!

THE RINGS

Colorful, versatile and bright, like the continents they represent. Wanna paint your nails, Olympic rings style? Here’s what you’ll need:

BLUE IS FOR EUROPE

  1. Lagoon, DIOR VERNIS
  2. Warwick Way, NAILS INC.
  3. Coastal Surf, REVLON
  4. Blagger, BUTTER LONDON

BLACK IS FOR AFRICA

  1. Nocturnelle, MAC
  2. Black Satin, CHANEL LE VERNIS
  3. 27 Noir primtie, YSL COUTURE

THE COVETED

They all want to win them, they all want a place in the podium. You don’t need a medal to give your nails that precious metallic twist! You just need a couple of bottles of polish and a killer top coat (hey, the shinier, the better).

Well, I hope you enjoyed this NAIL FILES as much as I’m enjoying those hunky sharks (hello, Ryan Lochte) that are swimming everyday for me (at least I like to think they are swimming for me). Tomorrow we’ll resume our Summer Getaways. Brace yourselves for some killer outfits!

Happy Sunday!

Sweet kisses…
