London 2012 Olympics: Nail Art Extravaganza

Perhaps taking a cue from Hunger Games nail artists, these equally fierce competitors have made nail art an Olympic sport of its own. While these athletes are busy crying over both wins AND losses, we're busy looking at their hands.

I'm cool with this trend as long as it isn't affecting their scores. We want to see some medals! Also, where do these ladies find the time in between training sessions to get there nails done? I'm not training for anything and I still can't find a free hour to hit up the nail salon. Olympians, please advise!

Take a look at our favorite shots and GO TEAM USA!!
