It wasn't long ago when Hidilyn Diaz gave the Filipinos a cool surprise when she won a silver medal for the women's weightlifting division. Her cool nail art spells Pinoy pride like no other. Apart from Hidilyn, a lot of athletes and fans are also painting their digits with #Rio2016-inspired designs. From glittered nails to the symbolic Olympic rings, we've rounded up the coolest #Rio2016-inspired nail art we've seen on the internet.

Add a dash of glitter.

One easy way you can spice your nail design is by adding a dash of glitter to it.

Show them whose side you're on. 

Whether you're for Team USA or Team Philippines, proudly show everyone whose side you are on by adding the flag of the country you're rooting for to your nail art.

Put a twist to the classic French tips.

French tips are a classic, but upside down French tips are cool and trendy. Make your digits fun by using the different colors of the Olympic rings for your upside down take on this classic nail style.


Brazil, Brazil!

Nothing spells #Rio2016 more than Brazil!


Show your love for your country and #Rio2016 by taking inspiration from this cool Olympics-inspired nail art. We would love to see a Filipino version of this!
