Decorating for Halloween is a lifestyle. And amind all the excitement, it’s easy to forget that portable decorations exist in the form of cute Halloween nails. We’re sure there are other uses for nails, but we can’t think of any. Pass the black polish, please!
Halloween nail art comes in many varieties. You can go creepy and spooky, or lighten things up with adorable ghosts, bats, and pumpkins. We found a bunch of creative designs for people who don’t want to be scared of their own hands. The power they wield!
Bring this list of fun spooky season nail inspiration to your local nail tech, or give it a try yourself. There might be enough magic in the air for them to turn out okay. Just in case, have the acetone on standby.
17 Cute Halloween Nails to Make Your Ghosts Smile
1. Pink Heart Halloween Nails
Why choose between hearts and skulls when you can just mash them all together in one set? Just don’t mash them too hard. That’s how you get headaches. And dancing monsters.
2. Galaxy Ghost Nails
These ghosts are the cutest in the entire galaxy. We’re not quite sure how they’re dealing with the whole gravity thing, but they haven’t flown off our fingers yet!
3. Pastel Mismatched Halloween Nails
It’s a good thing that mismatching is a trend right now. Our fifty shades of black wardrobe has caused us a lot of sleepless nights.
4. Nude Halloween Nails
If your vibe is more understated, this cute Halloween nail design is perfect. And by that, we mean it does a great job of hiding grown out nails. So functional!
5. Sparkly Moon Nails
There’s something special about nails that work for Halloween and all the way through New Years. If you manage to find gel polish that also lasts that long, we can probably take over the whole world.
6. Cute Gravestone Nails
R.I.P. to CDs. Where’s the tombstone for Blockbuster?
7. Pointy Cute Halloween Nails
We’re batty for this simple Halloween nail design. Can someone turn llamas into a verb next?
8. Glitter Accent Nail
So that’s where all the random glitter has been coming from! And here we thought it was a Tinkerbell infestation.
9. Chrome Pumpkin Nails
These chrome pumpkins look good enough to eat. Once they’re turned into pies, obviously.
10. Cute Ghost Nails
Those are either mermaid tails, devil horns, or flames. And that’s three new costume ideas! Anyone throwing three Halloween parties?
11. Cute 3D Halloween French Tips
These 3D Halloween nails are a great reminder to keep your hands to yourself so you don’t snag on everything you pass by. Especially all the glittery ghosts in hiding.
12. Retro Halloween Nails
The floral ghosts are adorable, but we can’t stop looking at the happy little mushrooms. It probably has nothing to do with that mysterious pile of mushrooms we just ate.
13. Jack-O-Lantern Nails
This design will give you all the joy of a Jack-O-Lantern without any of the pumpkin guts. And, said pumpkin guts stuck under your nails for two days.
14. Black Cat Tips
If you’re getting creeped out by the cat staring at you, just say his name. He’ll go back to ignoring you real quick.
15. Matte Witchy Nails
In the name of fire safety, don’t forget to blow out the candle on your pinky before bed. Ours keeps short-circuiting and we can’t burn another set of nice sheets.
16. Abstract Candy Corn Nails
If you try to DIY these, know that there’s a fine line between abstract art and “this looks like my four year old niece went ham on my nail polish collection.” Although we know some collectors who would pay top dollar for the latter.
17. Scooby Doo Nails
Ruh-roh. We just got purple nail polish on our roommate’s bedspread. But it’ll match all the potion stains, so it’s nbd.
