Today all the kids are heading back to school, the teens high school and university. The official end to the summer is here (sigh….). What a perfect time to try out some back to school nails to help brighten the transition from summer to fall. My design is definitely not original, I’ve seen many different versions of some of these back to school nails around, but I’ve never done them myself.
For those who read my previous post on N.A.I.L – a fun and casual monthly nail art challenge with prompts, the first prompt for September is: APPLES so another perfect excuse for back to school nails.
Pinky Finger: Pencil
I used OPI kiss me I’m brazilian for the eraser and then used OPI love.angel.music.baby for the gold metal with OPI I just can’t copacabana for yellow pencil. I then used black and orange acrylic paint for the details.
Ring Finger Three Ringed Paper:
essie blanc was used for the paper and then I used blue an red acrylic paint for the lines in the paper.
Middle Finger: Apple
I used essie blanc for the background and then painted the apple with acrylic paint.
Index Finger: Notebook
I used essie licorice on the whole nail and then used essie blanc to polish a thick stripe down the centre of my nail. I then used black acrylic paint and painted tiny uneven spots to create the speckled effect of the notebook and finished by painting the label with acrylic paint.
I polished the nail with OPI peanuts good grief! and then created the measurements with black acrylic paint.
All nails were topped with HK Girl Topcoat.
What do you think of these back to school nails?
Until next time,
What is everyone else saying about Apples?
