So we curated a special Back To School collection just for you filled with the hottest nail colors and essentials you need to make a great first impression. In need of some nail art inspo? Don't worry! We've got you covered. Let's check out some of these cute and easy DIY nail art designs that you can achieve right at home!

Back-To-School Nail Art Inspo


Amelie from wears "Spring In Action" and "Cactus What You Preach" from the new OPI Nature Strong line. OPI Nature Strong is OPI's first natural-origin nail lacquer! It's vegan, made from all-natural ingredients, and safe for kids! We love Amelie's alternating mani topped with some gold glitter to create the perfect finish.

Back-To-School Essentials

After being home for over a year, we know that keeping your hands clean is very important. Stock up on those hand sanitizers! What is useful about our hand sanitizers is that we have pocket-size ones that'll fit perfectly in your pocket or backpack.



Due to the current circumstances, you may be using a lot of hand sanitizer throughout the day. As a result, your hands and cuticles may be extra dry.  Add a CND lotion and some cuticle oils to help hydrate those dry hands and cuticles.


Many of us are not comfortable with going to school without a mask yet, so keeping an extra pair in your backpack or bag would be handy.  Everly face masks are great because they are 100% cotton and great for anyone with sensitive skin. The mask is adjustable to anyone's size so it will not bother anyone's ears throughout the day.


Getting your nails ready for that first day back? Grab all the tools and essentials you need to create the perfect DIY manicure. We can’t start a new school year without taming your nails. From our affordable nail nippers to our nail files, create your own salon-quality manicure in the comfort of your own home.




After taming your nails, it is only right to polish them. We added so many fall nail polish collections and also brands! We have brands from OPI, Essie, CND, and even indie nail polish! Yes, we have expanded our indie nail polish that you have seen on instagram. 


Not enough time to polish your nails or want a fast solution? Check out our variety of nail wraps for your next manicure! No wait times, no mess. You apply them on stickers. Easy as 1,2,3!


We can’t go back to school without accessorizing! Our friends Etoi has one of the best accessories to rock! The rings will go amazing with your new fresh mani that you DIY at home. 



Don't forget to add some body care in your back to school shopping trip. We can't have you start the new year with crusty skin. Start hydrating your body with our latest body care.





Good luck on going back to school. Take a picture, tag us, and use the hashtag #PolishWithBeyond! We love to see your first day of school mani!
