Challenge for today is the Olympic Medals, which apparently come on a purple ribbon this year. Each medal is personalised to each discipline so thought I would just do a general set of gold, silver and bronze.
Index Finger - The Torch and Cauldron "The big finale is the entrance of the Olympic Flame into the Stadium. It is passed through the athletes to the final Torch bearer, who will ceremoniously light the Cauldron, indicating the beginning of the Games. The Flame will continue to burn for the whole of the Games"
Middle Finger - The Official London 2012 Olympics Flag "Once the Games have been declared open, the Olympic Flag is then carried into the Stadium and hoisted into the air as the respective Anthem is played. The Olympic Charter states that each flag must fly for the entire duration of the Games – placed in a prominent position in the main Stadium"
Ring Finger - The Queen Receiving the Head of State. "The Head of State of the Host Country is received at the entrance of the Olympic Stadium by the President of the IOC. For the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, Her Majesty the Queen will be greeted by Jacques Rogge"
Little Finger - Official Olympic Emblem "The Olympic Emblem is based on the number 2012 – the year of the Games – and includes the Olympic Rings, one of the world’s most recognised brands, and the word ‘London’ – the world's most diverse city"
Thumb - Olympics Union Jack Flag As far as I can gather the reason for the Official Union Jack Flag to be blue is because it is the same as the outfits which have been designed by Stella McCartney.

The neck of the lid has little indentations which makes it easier to keep a grip of.
All of these sports related nail challenges are really quite challenging! I am not sporty in the slightest and have no incline to watch any of them. Which means it is difficult to work out what to do nail wise.
I had to google image search to find out what a buttercup looked like, and I admit mine didn't really turn out. Changed my design and added Buttercup the power puff girl as she also came up when I searched for Buttercup, so yes I did sort of cheat!
This polish is a duochrome and as such is almost impossible to photograph, and so there are more photos than I would usually post;
Hopefully you can see that this slight duochrome, it goes between purple, black cherry, deep raspberry to a milk chocolate colour. Occasionally I noticed a hint of green and almost a yellow.
Opacity: This polish needed four coats to achieve coverage, the formulation is very water-like Scent: I didn't find this particular polish offensive smelling, but be aware many people have commented on this before Brush Type: Standard, verging on the wider side How much in the bottle? 15ml Price: £1.95 From: NailPolishDirect
