DIY Nail Art: Go For The Gold With This Olympic-Inspired Manicure (VIDEO)

While we've shared many laughs looking back at gymnast leotards and scrunchies over the years, it's only fitting that we take a break from cheering on Team USA with this Olympic-themed DIY nail art.

YouTube vlogger Pixie Polish came up with a bold manicure complete with Olympic rings, stripes and the good ol' Union Jack (the flag of the United Kingdom). In the video below, we see how she uses a white striper nail polish brush to create diagonal lines, plus her toothpick trick to paint on colorful hoops and write out "2012." Pretty impressive!
