3 chic and spooky Halloween nail art designs

Having a beautiful set of nails might seem like a luxury, but it can be a total mood boost every time you glance at them. And now, with Halloween on the horizon, we can’t wait to make sure our nails reflect our excitement for the most haunted and spine-tingling time of year.

Here are our favorite Halloween nail trends, ranging from the beginner level all the way up to “Don’t try this at home!”

1. Super Spooky Nail Stickers

First, let’s start with the easy options. These Halloween nail decals are simple to apply, and you can customize them to suit your own personal style. For example, you can paint your nails a soft white and then apply a Jack-o-Lantern decal to your ring finger, or you can try applying one of every Halloween sticker on each nail. Find them on Amazon for $10.99.


2. Orange-Tipped Manis

If you want a simple way to elevate your nail look into Halloween territory, just ask your nail artist to give you a French mani with orange-tipped nails instead of the traditional white tips. Instagrammer @aglia_suomi_nail_system shows us how sophisticated this fresh fall look can be, and the addition of sparkly orange polish on the ring finger makes this look uber-trendy (see below).


3. Goth Gets Gorgeous

Looking for something a bit more glam? OPI has a host of nail shades that will easily take you from the office to the late-night Halloween party. Try shades like “Suzi Needs A Loch-smith” or “It’s A Piazza Cake” to create beautiful pumpkin-hued nails, or “Vampsterdam” or “Black Onyx” to create a gorgeous goth look. Looking bad never looked so good! Check out other awesome fall nail shades here.
