Never mind what you’ve heard; nail polish should not be refrigerated to prolong its life. Apparently, the cold can cause it to thicken. Better to store your favorite varnishes at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. [Fox News]

There was hardly a dry eye in the house as two-time defending gold medal champs Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings collapsed on the sand after clenching their third and final Olympic gold in women’s beach volleyball yesterday. It’s a bittersweet victory for the dynamic duo, with May-Treanor retiring from competition to start a family. During the medal ceremony, as we watched an emotional Walsh Jennings, we couldn’t help but notice her simple patriotic manicure. Walsh Jennings opted for a blue hue with a red accent nail while May-Treanor ditched her American flag decals from Minx for an au natural look. We have certainly seen our fair share of nail art during these summer Games, but for us, this platform and the powerful sentiment of their 11-year partnership is what truly solidifies this trend.
What does the ideal daily diet of an Olympic medalist look like? A lot prettier than you might expect when it’s artistically interpreted by Sarah Parker and Michael Bodiam. The creative duo arranged and styled five meal plans prescribed by Olympian nutritionist Dan Benardot—ranging from peanut butter and bagels for a gymnast to blueberries and chocolate milk for a triathlete—for a result that was visually striking.

It was only a matter of time until the inescapable nail art craze fused with Olympics zeitgeist.
