Let the games begin!
Athletes from 88 nations have gathered at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia to show off their record-setting sporting skills. Almost 300 medals will be awarded to first, second and third place finishes in a variety of high-performance snow and ice events, including alpine skiing, speed skating, snowboarding, ski jumping and ice hockey.
In honor of Team USA, we've put together a special giveaway of gold, silver and bronze nail polishes. Valued at approximately $250, these luminous lacquers from Dazzle Dry, Milani Nail Lacquer, OPI, SpaRitual and Zoya Nail Polish will help you create must-have medalist manis.
