To all the lovely teachers and students, lets do this! In honor of the upcoming school year I created a tutorial for Back to School Chalkboard Nails. I have seen this look all over Instagram (@TheCraftyNinja) and wanted to recreate this fun design. Hope everyone has a great school year!
In the video tutorial I used Beauty Secrets Nail polish thinner to thin out the nail polish to make it easier to create designs using a Toothpick. To create the matte look, I used Essie Matte About top coat to create the Chalkboard finish on my nails, which takes out the shine and makes it appear flat. My favorite paint brush is the size 2 brush from the Royal Aqualon collection, which I used to create the notebook paper and apple details. To clean off my paint brush I used Acetone in a bottle cap and rinse it off until it’s clean.
