🎵 Back to school, back to school 🎵

Ready or not, summer is winding to a close! And that means a new school is right around the corner. To see how Influensters are prepping for the school year ahead, Influenster surveyed 23,500 of our members, including both students and mothers of students heading back to school, to see which products they're turning to the most. From snacks to supplies and even beauty products, here's how our Influensters are making sure 2017 is a winning school year!

When it comes to supplies, Influensters are making sure they're prepared. Our survey shows black markers coming in as the top choice for students' favorite marker color. Interestingly, although 48 percent of students will be tossing a classic Sharpie into their bags, nearly 60 percent of moms will be supplying their kids with Crayola markers instead. Looks like the classics can't be beat!

And let's not forget snack time! According to our survey, the top snack brand that students are packing on the first day of school will be cookie classic, Oreo. As for what our Influenster moms are packing? Gen Y moms are choosing Cheez-Its, while Gen X moms are choosing Doritos as the top snack brands that they are packing for their kids on the first day of school.

To round out our back-to-school survey, we asked Influenster students how they'll be decking out their nails for the first day. Our survey shows Gen Y students are opting for OPI as the top nail polish brand to wear on day one. However, for Gen Z students, Essie reigns supreme for their nail brand of choice to kick off the school year. Yet what do these two demos have in common though? Both generations say "nude" is their top choice nail polish shade for the first day of school. So, move over holographic, unicorn tips, good old fashioned nude nails are here to stay. 

How are you prepping for the first day of school? Share with us your top supply, snack, and nail polish below!
