#teachernails | Teacher Nail Art is a Thing!


Written by Holly (Teach Starter)

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.
