I used five shades from Barry M: 134 Yellow, 262 Bright Red, 290 Spring Green, 291 Cobalt Blue and 47 Black. I also used Rimmel Nail Tip Whitener and 5-in-1 base and top coat, which is really reasonably priced and helps to seal in designs for a few more days. The gold used for the medal detail is by NailGirls from this month’s JolieBox, but any gold (or silver, or bronze) will do.
Paint your nails with a base coat and then paint a random stripe of your first colour onto your nails. It’s easiest to keep the brush still and rotate the nail to get a smooth stripe. Let it dry for a few seconds and move on to the next colour until you have all five Olympic ring colours on your nails.
For the thumbnail medal design, start with a blue v-shape, allow to dry and follow the same shape with parallel lines of red. Separate the blue and red lines with a white striper and, finally, paint a small circle or dot of metallic nail polish for the medal.
