For London 2012, London-based nail artist Sophy Robson teamed up with P&G to provide competing athletes with nail services at the Olympic Village in Stratford. Robson and her team of nail artists, collectively known as NailPorn, have become an overnight success, performing 10-15 manicures per person, per day at the Olympics. With 207 different nail designs to choose from, the nail techs report that the majority of athletes choose to have their national flag painted on their nails.
