The London 2012 Olympics are days away, which means it’s the perfect time to try a stylish mani-pedi in bronze, silver or gold. 

Priti NYC has a 4-lacquer kit called Heavy Medal London 2012, $38, made especially for this year’s Games, and plenty of other brands offer options that will work with your tan and everything in your closet. The versatile shades are also a great way 

to show support for our Canadian athletes — because visualization is the first step toward success, right? 

So paint those tips metallic and envision our Olympic team heading home with fists full of medals.
