The whole world will be watching come Friday as the highly anticipated 2012 Summer Olympics begin in London, England. Unfortunately for most of us, we can’t just hop across the pond to cheer on with the masses, but we can still celebrate in style! We’re paying homage to the games’ host country and getting in the Olympic spirit with some London-inspired and Brit-based beauty and fashion finds. Even if you’re parked on your couch watching the sports spectacle from your living room, you can still look festive and fabulous as you cheer on all the athletes!
Butter London Olympic Trio Polishes
Everyone is a winner this Olympic season with Butter London’s Heavy Medal Collection ($36 on butterlondon.com), containing a trio of eye-catching metallics in gold, silver and bronze hues. Without the formaldehyde, toluene and DPB found in most nail polishes, these long-lasting lacquers are one prize we would love to win first place for!
