If you love to go all out for a themed event, wearing red, white, and blue clothing throughout the Olympics is a great start, but it's really the details that bring a look together. A red lip is a great accent, of course, but we cannot forget about the nails. You can never go wrong with a classic red manicure (and pedicure). Or you can get a little bit more creative with it, throwing in some white and blue to amp up the Star Spangled spirit. Or you can just get very literal with some Olympic logo nail art.

There are so many options to choose from, so every athlete (and spectator) can choose their ideal manicure. 

If you're looking for inspiration, gymnast Suni Lee's white, acrylic manicure stayed in tact when she won a gold model in the individual all-around. Two of her nails were adorned with the Olympic Rings. Her teammate Jordan Chiles also went with the white polish and Olympics symbol combo too. Swimmer Katie Ledecky competed with a cherry red manicure with some white polka dot accents.
