awesome halloween nail art designs

Updated on June 23, 2016

Spookify Your Talons

Goblins and ghouls the witching hour is here. Alas, you may not feel like dressing up but hey, all is not lost. Get your nails Halloween ready , and nobody will throw rotten pumpkins at you! From creepy eyes to awesome bats, there are some cool ideas here to get you started.

For more spooktacular nail ideas check here

1) Night Sky

How can you not love purple for Halloween?! You can use nail decals to top it up or even apply stickers such as bats or pumpkins.

2) Spooky Eyballs

Cute nails!! You could do the opposite...paint the nails white and put black eyes and a mouth like a ghost!! How cute for halloween!!

3) Sugar Skulls

The extensive nail tutorial manicure to the right is inspired by mexican sugarskull glow and is in the dark. Glow in the dark nail polish is definitely something you need to get your hands on for Halloween.

4) Bright Orange

Orange is perfect for Halloween nails. What's more, you can be clever about how you paint your nails so this will take you through the weekend even just for lunch with the girls. For example the color is season appropriate but it's not over the top spooky.

5) Black With Feature Nail

Black is a very elegant color that will really be eye catching for any party. Jazz it up with a feature nail for example zebra stripes.

6)Going Batty

These are very cute nails especially for little ones going trick or treating for the evening. Why not do a cute manicure to match your little ones to look super cute as you trick or treat.

7) Spider Webs

This is really effective for the tips of your nails. All you need for this is red and a thin paint brush for the black. If you feel like going all out you could wear a spider woman costume to match.

8) Kawaii Nails

These Japanese style 3d nails are so cute for any festive event. Consult your local salon to get this look or you can purchase them online.

      You know, I'm generally not one to dress up for Halloween----so for me, these nails would be the perfect ticket!! I wonder if buying little nail decals would do the trick.....with glittery nail polish? Hmmm. You've got my creative juices flowing. I suddenly feel excited about doing my nails for the Holidays, thanks to you! Great ideas here!!!
