We have fabulous tips on ghoulishly glam nail art that will help you win “Best Halloween Look” at all your costume parties. Try out any of the below styles to turn heads at all your frightening festivities!
Spooky Staples: Black and orange are the staple colors for Halloween, so feel free to jazz up your nails with either or both of these hues! Choose a solid black or solid orange mani, or alternate between orange and black for each nail. You can also use toothpicks to draw Halloween designs like little white "ghosts" and black "skulls" on each nail!
Zombified and Fabulous: If you plan to dress like a walker from The Walking Dead this Halloween, look the part with creepy zombie nails! Have gray polish, olive green polish, and a matte top-coat on-hand, as well as a make-up sponge. Dip the sponge in the gray polish and dab on each nail. Let dry, then dip the sponge in the olive polish to create little dark green “moss” splotches on each nail. Once dry, add a clear matte topcoat to complete the look!
Wicked Water Marble: Steal the spotlight at your spooktacular soiree with this show-stopping design! Start off with a cup of room temperature water, a bottle of orange polish, a bottle of black polish, and a clear topcoat, as well as tape and several toothpicks. Place tape around the edge of the first nail, covering the cuticles. Add two drops of orange to the water and let spread, then a drop of black polish in the middle of the orange polish, and add another drop of orange in the middle of the black. Then, take a toothpick and drag the edges of the polish to the center of the circle. Press your nail into the design, use a toothpick to scrape excess polish away from the edges of the nail, and take the nail out of the water. Then remove the tape and let dry. Use a toothpick to clear the polish from the top of the water, and repeat the process with the rest of the nails. Don't forget a glossy clear topcoat!
Cute Candy Corn Mani: No Halloween is complete without yummy candy corn! Celebrate this delicious tradition with a cute candy corn nail design! Paint a horizontal orange stripe at the base of each nail and let dry, add a yellow horizontal stripe above each orange stripe and let dry, and then paint the tips of your nails white. Don’t forget to add a glossy clear topcoat!
