Never one to let a holiday go by without a special manicure, I’m always on the prowl for new designs to celebrate. This is the first year I’ve thought to actually dedicate a mani to the kids going back to school, probably because I have a daughter heading to preschool (waaaaah). While the kids are getting new clothes and backpacks to signify returning to class, why not do a festive mani for yourself?

1. Notepaper

Don’t you just love the smell of new notebook paper and freshly sharpened pencils? You probably won’t be taking many notes, but your nails will give you all the feels when it comes to a new page in life. This simple notebook page design is definitely school-worthy.

2. Apple For The Teacher

Teachers and parents alike can sport this simple yet iconic design. Nothing says a teacher like an apple, right? With such a basic style, anyone can pull off both creating and wearing this mani.

3. Time For Math

Wow, this mani actually makes you think, much like your high school geometry class! You’ve definitely got a little bit of everything going on here, and there’s no denying this manicure is all about class.
