Athletes and fans all over the world are showing their support for the country and cheering for the Indian contingent at the ongoing London Olympics, through wacky nail art. You can sport tri-coloured nails too by following these easy steps at home.

You need:
* Nail filer
* Base/top coat
* Nail paints in orange, white, green and navy blue
* Zero-size paint brushes

Cut and file your nails and apply a base coat. Take a zero-size paint brush, dip it in the orange paint and carefully make a vertical line across the nail. Create a similar line with white paint.

Fill the rest of the area with the green paint. Wait for five minutes for the nail paints to dry completely.

Create the Ashoka chakra with blue paint, with white as the background. After the paint has dried, apply a top coat. It adds shine to the polish and helps retain the paint for longer.
