When sitting getting my nails done, I wondered… how cool would it be to have your nails painted to suit a particular teaching topic, classroom theme or just general teaching related nail art. Then… I discovered #teachernails on Instagram. Teacher nail art is a thing and if you are a painted nail kinda person, these photos are sure to impress.

Go on… spoil yourself these holidays with a manicure. Then, reap the rewards when you see your students’ faces when you return to school!
