Earlier this week, FEMAIL revealed the artist behind the athletes patriotic nails and now we bring you an exclusive 'how to' so you can get the in-demand look at home.

Ever since Rebecca Adlington showed off her Union Jack talons when she collected her medal, Sophy Robson and her team of nail artists have become an overnight success story.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alexa Chung, the self-proclaimed "flyest nail artist" joined forces with P&G to provide nail services to athletes and guests at the Olympic Village in Stratford and it seems the world can't get enough.

In total there are 207 designs and the team work hard, shaping up around 10 – 15 manicures per person, per day.

The designs have proven so popular that even Boris Johnson popped by for a quick file and One Direction are keen to hop aboard the trend.

The technicians have made their way through a staggering 200 bottles of nail varnish and they have found that 8 out of 10 athletes stay true to their roots and request their national flag to be painted onto their nails.
