Teens and tweens can be ideal nail art clients. Tempt them with something cool for back to school that will suit their style. Take classic scholastic images such as chalkboard and pencil and give them a contemporary matte or chevron twist. Think of something new and fresh like emojis that will encourage them to raise their hand. Whether new school or old school, these looks are in a class of their own.

Congratulations to Jodie Rahaley, who took the top spot in this year’s Mini Masterpiece nail art contest after entering the two previous years. Her detailed, contrasting rendition of “Urban Expressions” by Michael Lang impressed the judges. Other beautiful entries ranged from the ever-popular Vermeer to Dali and Basquiat.
