6 Useful Nail Tips for Back to College -

University season is starting up soon, with students all around the US (and world) going back to college. This includes both first time students, as well as those going another year closer to their graduation and the job world.

For many women, college is the first time that they really do their nails. And after all, it is a great time to experiment and try some different things. Nails in particular are a fun way to express yourself in a college environment that is generally more casual and open. Regardless of your style, you can use colors and designs that can match your personality and give you some extra confidence.  

   1. Throw out the nail polish – when going to college, nail polish is a hassle. It comes in small glass containers, is messy in small areas, and the smell may annoy your roommates. You’ll be much happier and better off using some convenient gel nail strips that can be carried in even the flattest of places and put on anywhere.

   2. Try a few different styles college is a time to try new colors, and you can easily do so with the wide range of nail strips available. You may want to start off with some basic colors like pink, nude, and red, and expand further into some more daring glitter styles and art designs. You can also celebrate holidays or outings with special theme nails that will be sure to get the envy of your friends

   3. Go fully custom with clear nail stripswant to protect you nails and make them look shiny, but also want the ability to design them however you like? Try some customizable options like Crystal Clear or Sparkle On – if you want a little extra glitter. With these, you’ll be able to write, draw, or color anything you want on them. The possibilities are literally endless, so you never can go wrong having some clear nails in your collection.

   4. Have a nail party with your girlfriends – gel nail strips are perfect for bringing people together to do your fingers and toes, together with some food and drinks. We promise you’ll have a great time with lots of laughs. Interested in buying a bunch of nail strips for a party together?

   6. Try to get some guy friends involved – maybe your friends who are boys will be hesitant to try anything with their nails. But actually, men (from celebrities to regular people) are becoming more and more open to using nails – so much so that we made an article specifically about men getting their nails done. And in college is as good of time as ever to try something new out. So maybe you can have some fun with your boyfriend or other guys and have them through on a few styles to see how they look and feel.


These are just some ideas to get you thinking about taking care of your nails and having fun with them during your time at school. But in the end, there are no rules!
