Halloween Nail Art Ideas


Hello everyone!

As it is Halloween in a few weeks I wanted to do some themed posts. Today I'm going to show you some easy nail art to celebrate all things spooky! These would really nice as an accent or you could go all out and do them on all ten fingers.

Creepy Skeleton      

For this you only need 2 colours so this is good if you don't have a ridiculous amount of nail polish (like me!)
1. Apply a base coat.
2. Paint your entire nail in white. Do as many coats as needed to get an opaque colour. Wait until fully dry.
3. Using a black nail art pen draw two triangles. Then do 1 horizontal line with a few vertical lines coming from it. Wait until dry.
4. Seal with a top coat and you're done!

Blood Dripping

This could go with lots of Halloween costumes as it's not really themed it's just "blood".
1. Apply a base coat.
2. Paint an opaque coat of white polish.
3. Paint 3 red dots at varying heights then join them to the end of the nail.
4. Seal with a top coat and you're done!


This was surprisingly easy to do. You could also use a red instead of orange if you wanted an apple.
1. Apply a base coat.
2. Paint an opaque layer of white polish.
3. Paint the tip of the nail with orange (or red!). Wait until dry.
4. Add some lighter orange stripes to the pumpkin to add dimension.
5. Paint a brown stripe coming from the semicircle for the stalk.
6. Then add a small green leaf.
7. Once fully dry add a top coat and you're finished!

Spider Web

 This nail art idea only uses 2 colours, black and white, which I think are staples in any nail polish collection.
1. Apply a base coat.
2. Paint the whole nail black.
3. Using a white nail art pen draw 3 lines all going from the same corner of the nail.
4. Join the lines together using semicircles.
5. Add a top coat and there you go!

Black cat

This is probably my favourite out of the 5 because I love cats and I think this is so cute. I didn't use a base colour but if you wanted to I would recommend a light colour like white or baby pink so the black stands out.
1. Apply a base coat. (Then apply your chosen colour if you are using one)
2. Paint a semicircle at the tip in black polish.
3. Using a black nail art pen draw 2 triangles coming from the semicircle.
4. Once dry draw 2 white dots for the cat's eyes.
5. Paint 2 black dots inside the white.
6. Seal with a top coat and your cute cat is complete!

So that was 5 easy Halloween nail art ideas. Let me know if you try any of them out. Speak to you soon!
