One of the most popular nail art designs for back to school are pencil nail art designs. These designs are usually quite simple to achieve, and require little more than some yellow, pink, and silver polish. If you’ll be painting the pencil points, you’ll also need some black or dark gray polish as well. Colored pencil nails, of course, will require an array of colors! Painting the actual pencil nail design is easy too! You can use tape for straight line, or just a nail art brush to create the designs.
