Back to School Week: School Nails

Hey you! It's time for my annual Back to School Week on the blog and class is in session! I've got a week filled with beauty advice, makeup, a DIY, and hair ideas.

Today I'm sharing a school-inspired nail tutorial. It's so easy--you'll see! Get out those school supplies and enjoy!

N e e d:
  • White polish
  • Black polish
  • Matte top coat (optional)
  • Clear top coat
  • Permanent markers

D o:

  • Paint 4 nails white.
  • Paint one nail black and add a matte top coat. This makes it look more like a chalkboard and is completely optional.
  • Using permanent markers, draw school-inspired designs. This is so much easier than using a brush, and chances are you have some markers lying around.
  • I chose a pencil, notebook paper, chalkboard, an apple, and a school pennant flag in my high school's colors. 
  • Finish the white nails with a clear coat.

T r y:
  • Be sure to test the clear coat, as some brands will smear the ink. I used Seche Vite.
  • Make this your own! I used simple designs, but do what works for you!
  • Use your school colors or a try green chalkboard (sidenote: do they even have chalkboards anymore?) or white board. 
  • Back to School Wavy-Striped Nails
  • School Spirit Nails

Don't forget:
Summer's Eve is hosting a giveaway on my blog for a $100 SpaFinder gift card. Who doesn't want a free trip to the spa? Enter here.
