Polish Days - Olympics

A while ago now I signed up to be a part of Polish Days.
Polish Days is an event set up by Hannah at Polly Polish. To find out more about it and sign up have a look HERE.

This is the first time I have participated and I'm not going to lie to you, I was more than a little worried when I found out the theme!
I was in no way interested in the Olympics. In fact I was a little bored of hearing about it. Then when it started and I actually sat and watched a bit of it I was all about the Olympics and Team GB!
But by then there were so many other very talented bloggers who had done their own Olympic manicures that I started fretting that I wouldn't be able to come up with anything new.
But I still gave it a go and this is what I came up with.

Thumb - Base two coats of Barry M Silver Foil to represent our Silver in Equestrian Team Eventing.
Barry M Black for the Equestrian symbol.
GOSH Blue Balloon with Barry M Blue Glitter for the blue Olympic Ring.
Barry M Lemon Ice Cream and Barry M Gold Glitter for the yellow Olympic Ring.

Index - Base Barry M Gold Foil to represent our gold medal in Rowing Womens Pair.
Barry M Black for the rowing symbol.
Barry M Bright Red and Red Glitter for the red Olympic Ring.
Barry M Spring Green and Green Glitter for the green Olympic Ring.

Middle - Base two coats of white.
Barry M Bright Red, GOSH Blue Balloon for the Union Jack.
Barry M Lemon Ice Cream and Gold Glitter for the yellow ring.
Barry M Black Multi Glitter for the black ring.

Ring Finger - Base two coats of White.
Barry M Gold Foil for the torch.
Missguided Misslead and Barry M Tangerine for the flame.
Barry M Spring Green, Green Glitter and Black Multi Glitter for the rings.

Pinky - Two coats of Barry M Gold Foil to represent our gold in Mens Cycling.
Barry M Black for the cycling symbol.
GOSH Blue Balloon, Barry M Blue Glitter, Spring Green and Green Glitter for the rings.

I am really happy with the way this turned out, it's not as neat as I hoped but I loved it nonetheless and was very proud to wear it!

Here is a list of links to all the other amazingly talented participants!
