(via YouTube)Whether you're physically in London or watching the opening ceremony with friends, there's no reason not to dress up in head-to-toe Olympic cheer. And if head-to-toe gear isn't your bag, nail art is a perfect (and subtle) way to show your enthusiasm and team spirit.
Here are 10 gold-medal-worthy DIY nail art videos dedicated to the 2012 London Games.
Gold, silver, and bronze:
No need to participate in the Olympics to take home a medal—paint your nails gold, silver, and bronze for all three!
If you're really crafty, get creative and paint sport pictograms on each nail. Be warned: this one looks really tricky.
Rings and dots:
Rather than just painting all five Olympic rings on your nails (most Olympic nail art tutorials do) spice it up with silver and gold ombre dots (ignore the creepy fake nail holder).
Sick of rings, flags, and logos? Try this torch design.
Make your nail painting skills official with the 2012 London Olympics' official logo.
Olympic rings with 2012:
Don't leave your friends guessing about abstract nail art—adorn your digits with Olympic rings and "2012" for a clear-cut ceremonial design.
Have the London Olympics unleashed your inner Anglophile? Show off your London love with a Union Jack.
Olympic rings don't need to go on the center of the nail—dare to be different with ring-embellished tips.
Passionate about your team? Paint your nails with patriotic flags to root for Team USA (or whomever else you're cheering for).
Rings, pictograms, and flags all-in-one:
Just like the athletes, for this year's Olympics go big or go home. Try painting your nails in pictograms, rings, 2012, and flags.
