Midweek Manicure // Top 10 Back to School Basics

August 26, 2014

My best friend Gemma is a teacher and recently told me how one of her favourite things about being on school holidays is the fact that she can wear whatever colour nail polish she likes, without worrying about whether it is “school appropriate” or not. With the summer holidays coming to a close I thought I’d have a look at some of my favourite work / school appropriate polishes to show that basic “sensible” nails don’t have to be boring.

See I told you they weren’t boring!
