I was sent a product for this post.

I was searching on Pinterest a few days ago for easy DIY nail designs when I found a cute idea for back to school. I’ve no idea who to credit this idea since there are dozens of different bloggers who’ve done this nail design.

SinfulColors A Class Act

DIY Nail Design with SinfulColors A Class Act

I received several of the nail polishes from the SinfulColors A Class Action collection (their back to school fall collection). This new collection has something for everyone including dusty pastels, pops of color, denim blues, brights, shimmers and 3D glitters. You can find the SinfulColors back-to-school collection for $1.99 each at Walgreens and other mass retailers for August & September 2015.  There are 27 different shades in this collection.

To create this fun back to school pencil design, follow these steps:

  • Remove your nail polish.
  • File and buff your nails straight across the top.
  • Apply a clear base coat to protect your nails.
  • Paint your nail yellow using SinfulColors VI Peach (2 coats of nail polish).
  • Paint a stripe of SinfulColors Casablanca across the center of your nail. You can use tape if you need to for a straight line.
  • Paint the top of your nail with SinfulColors Pink Break. You can use tape if you need to for a straight line.
  • Be certain to allow each shade to dry completely before you move to the next step.
  • Cover the final nail design with a clear top coat to prevent chipping.

I use blue painter’s tape to mark off the lines on my nail. It removes cleaner that way for me. That’s all there is to it. This is one of the easiest DIY nail designs I’ve seen for back to school.
