If you aren't ready to leave summer behind and go back to school, this fun varsity nail art tutorial is a great way to help you tap back into your school spirit. Pop Sugar's beauty blog expect Kaitlyn Dreyling teaches you how to create a fun and inexpensive manicure that supports your school, university or college.

This chic manicure is incredibly easy to do at home with salon-quality results. All you need is a few polish hues based on your school colors and a fine-tip brush. Begin by painting your nails a base hue inspired by your school's most predominant color. In this tutorial Dreyling opts for a nautical navy blue. Once the color has dried go over the nails with a white polish and a thin paint brush and add two vertical stripes on each nail. Leave one accent nail blank and go in and add a decal of the first letter of your school.
