Back to School Nail Art

Happy Mani Monday everyone! Today is the first day of school for most schools where I live in Miami in the US. I know getting back into the grind can be difficult so I decided to create these super cute Back to School Nails to make the first day of school a little brighter!

I was inspired mainly by Yasmeen from Sloteazzy on IG and Hannah from The Nail Trail on YT. I took a little bit from all of the designs I’ve seen all over social media and created my own version of these Back to School Nails. I always LOVED school supplies. I still have a ton of school supplies and still get a few things even though I’ve been out of school for years! Haha! My favorite school supplies are always pens and markers!

I used Seche Vite top coat for all except the Chalkboard Nail. These were very fun to do! The hardest one to create was surprisingly the Chalkboard nail because of the letters. You need a really thin good nail art brush for that. Mine was ok. If you can recommend any really good thin nail art brushes, let me know in the comments below 🙂
