12 Back to School Nail Inspiration Looks You HAVE to Try


I can't believe it, but its already time to think about your back to school looks. I don't have any kiddos myself, but I WELL remember this time of summer when I was younger. Especially when I got to high school and didn't have a uniform to wear anymore. Cue the panic.

I wish Color Street had been a thing when I was a kid, especially for back to school, because it would have made one less thing a hassle for my parents and I. (I mean, lets face it - what kiddo is going to sit still long enough to do a good job on their nail polish AND THEN let it dry properly?)

And lets not forget our amazing teachers! I don't know how you all do it - spend all of your time and money after a short summer getting yourself classroom ready with supplies, clothes, and all those amazing posters you've found somewhere? You deserve one less thing to think about as you're heading back to school, and you deserve to look amazing. Thank you for all that you do! 

Of course, there are all of you dedicated sports moms - you are the ones out there at long, hot practices and in the rain at games. Luckily its super easy to support your kiddo's teams by combining one of our sports themed nail sets (football, baseball, soccer, basketball, hockey, and volleyball right now) with an accent of their team colors. This is also perfect for the kids too when they want to wear school colors!

Here are 12 super fun and easy nail looks done completely with Color Street 100% nail polish strips that you can use to inspire your next 10-minute stick and go mani or pedi!
