Why does it seem like every athlete has an amazing manicure? (Exhibit A: Great Britain’s bronze medalist for the 400m swim Rebecca Adlington, shown.) Thank Minx! Technicians from the celebrity-favorite brand, which is loved by stars such as Katy Perry and Beyonce, set up shop in London’s Olympic Village. “In the end we created more than 200 national flag designs for each of the participating nations,” Minx’s co-founder Janice Jordan told exclusively. “Each time we see an athlete sporting one of the Minx nail designs, we are so excited.” And now you can channel the winning spirit with your own mani!
