Summer Challenge Day 42 - Olympic Rings

Hi Goddesses

A super simple pattern today to reflect the Olympic Rings.

I picked Konad m85 because of its circular pattern, and basically just skittled it over a white base, in the order of the colour of the rings - blue, gold, black, green, red.

So if it's so simple, why isn't it perfect?  Well, I think my nails are too curved.  Truly, I do.  I had the same problem when I tried to use the base of a straw to stamp a circle on my nails.  Behold - 

See how curved they are, especially the ring finger ?   Yeh, told you.   And now if you go and look at other bloggers' nails, you'll see they are much flatter, and therefore smoother and more stamping-friendly.

Oh  I know, I know what you're thinking, but it's creative, and I'm sticking to it :p :)

To be honest, I wasn't very inspired when I created this mani a couple of weeks ago, but having seen the amazing Opening Ceremony last night, I now feel differently - stand by for quite a few Olympic themed manis this week :)  

Enjoy xx
