As any good Latina knows, we can't get enough of all things nail-related: nail polishes, nail designs, nail art--you name it. And at this year's Summer Olympics, many of the Olympians--Latino or otherwise--are mixing their fashion sense with their athletics. Ryan Lochte showed us what he has done with some bling, but we're really obsessed with the women athletes' fondness for sporting colorful, patriotic designs on their nails: from British gold medalist Rebecca Adlington's Union Jack nails to Missy Franklin's American flag mani, and even Colombian swimmer Carolina Colorado Henao's pretty Colombian flag design (seen above!), we want to get into the spirit too!

We've found some of the best designs on the web so that you can recreate and join in on the celebration! All you need is a little imagination and this inspiration.
