As if a Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) directed opening ceremony weren’t enough to crown the London Games the coolest Summer Olympics, now nail art leaders Minx Nails and CND Shellac have taken over the Olympic Village to give athletes a sample of their show-stopping manicures.
Both labels are helping competitors show their patriotic spirit with punky flag designs applied right in the Olympic Village. (Minx created over 200, while athletes can choose from 36 CND colors as well as customized Olympic-themed designs.) We love Minx’s Union Jack (shown here), sported by Rebecca Adlington when she won a Bronze Medal in the 400M freestyle, and CND’s Olympic Gold long-lasting shellac design (pictured, top), which promises to outlast the Games themselves.
CND Shellac paints on like polish – base coat, color, top coat – and is cured in a CND UV Lamp for zero dry time. It combines the ease of polish with high-gloss shine and 14-day wear. Visit cnd.com for the salon locator. Nail art aficionados can now shop Minx designs online at The Tasting Room.
