So, have you that gathered we’re in a bit of an Olympic frenzy? I knew I’d be glued to the TV all this past week (and dodging spoilers, which should be an Olympic sport itself). But what a fab surprise that the games are FULL of gals showing pride in the form of manicures! I particularly liked this look on swimmer Coralie Balmy of France.
How about a bit of leaguing before we get back to our TV’s, eh?
