THE PUMPKIN AND THE GHOST
Some bright cute nail art pumpkins are a nice conversation starter. No need to be too somber.
Ogling owls and howling wolves are staple creatures of the night. Try those art chops on a little tri-colored Halloween scene like this.
Eerie tombstones against a magenta sky scattered with multi-colored glitter stars. Sounds a lot like Mardi Gras!
It’s tricky to do this look without the help of a professional, but damn, it’s captivating to look at. Nail lust is happening right now for the inner vampire in us all.
NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
The famous film has inspired many a skeleton to jig. Apparently, it also inspires DIY nail art.
ALMOND NAIL MURALS
Get a pointy curved look with some expert applique in an almond-shaped oval. You’ll look wicked and prepared.
SCARLETT BLACK WIDOW
Cover those nails in bold red and black for some spidery snap.
MONSTER MOUTH TEETH
Turn your fingers into little vipers with some fangs and gaping mouths. Do you want that candy? Go growl and get it.
If you don’t want to make terrifying little mouths on your fingers, make hungry zombies instead. It’s still fierce, and great for crazily grabbing at all the candy you can find.
If you have the means to make your nails pop, why don’t you? These looks are just a jumping off point. Now let your imagination go wild!
