The Nail Files: Back-To-School Video Tutorial


Welcome to The Nail Files!


*shakes tambourine*


Well Shut the Front Door


**Link up with us to show off your cute manis and/or pedis (either done by yourself or in a salon), nail polish purchases and/or recommendations, nail polish tips--whatever nail-related thing you'd like! And please either use the new button or link back to this blog. Thanks!**

So, this week is bittersweet for most kiddies, tweenies, and teenies because it's back-to-school time! And what better way (for the parents) to celebrate than a themed mani? Haha! I've seen two designs on Pinterest as of late: lined loose leaf paper and pencils with erasers and because they were both so cute, I couldn't decide on just one!


Ta dah! Haha!

My video tutorial shows my very first time trying either and I have to say that they turned out really well. And if I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT TOO (yay) so check out the video to see how it all comes together! This one's almost 20 minutes, but you get TWO designs so it's totally worth it. Ha! That said you may want to have your breakfast AND coffee/tea/caffeine IV ready to go before watching. Or, you know, sneak it in during a slower part of your day. ;)




Psyched to see what you've got going on this week!

Love your mani Jennie!! I have to say there is nothing bittersweet to me about the end of August. I can't WAIT for my kids to be back in school! LOL I know they'd rather not be, but they don't know what's good for them!! ;)

Super cute mani, I've seen a few of these lately. Wonder why that is? Haha Have a great weekend!

I'm such a sucker for those shades of blue, love this!

I work at a university, so it's school all year round for me. Having said that, we started fall semester last week and my schedule is ramping up again. I need coffee.

If I had an ounce of artistic ability I totally would have done these for school haha but unfortunately I don't

Big fan of your nails and video Jennie! It seems like the hardest part of using those nail strips is actually placing them down on the nail in the first place! The outcome is worth it though :)

LOL That is the cutest mani ever! I've seen the paper one done a lot of times, but never the pencil. That's so cute! ^_^

Awesome! I love back to school nails...almost wish I was going with everyone else so I could do it too! I wonder if when I start online school if it would be totally lame to rock 'em then anyways? haha Do we nail artists ever really care about rules? I think I'll do it when the time comes! haha

So bummed I ended up missing 2 Nail Files! I was sick last week and spending time with my boyfriend (who plans on going into the military next month). But I have one all set up, so hopefully I can manage to POST it next week! :)

Yay. I can still link up. I had eye surgery last Wed, so I pre-posted my nail files for Friday. haha. That's a cute idea with your nails.

This is so cute! And I LOVE BTS!!! Woohoo!!! haha My oldest started back on July 24th and my pre-Ker starter back on August 1st. I wanted to do a BTS mani and never got around to it. Oh well. Love this and it looks great!
