Get your nails ready, because Sally Hansen and Crayola have joined creative, color-loving forces for a back-to-school-inspired collection that reminds us of a simpler time.

Nail polish and crayons have a lot in common. There are countless of colors to choose from, and certain brands give a unique and evocative name. Crayola is particularly good at the shade naming thing (Fuzzy Wuzzy, anyone?) Both mediums spark creativity and joy. Enter the Sally Hansen + Crayola Insta-Dri Collection.

The collab features 12 cheery bright shades of the best-selling quick dry polish. Insta-Dri is a pretty incredible product. It dries in literally a minute, and the 3-in-1 formula means no basecoat or topcoat needed. It’s opaque in just one coat — it’s easier than coloring with crayons.

TFW you open a new box of crayons…or a new bottle of nail polish.
