At the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in London, photographers caught the Queen distracted and picking at her nails. Considering the nail art athletes from around the globe are sporting for the Olympics, it’s no wonder the Queen seemed a little bothered by her undone nails. Nail art has definitely become a global phenomenon and the perfect way to show team spirit for the Summer Games.
