Get your inspo for a spooky mani right here. We’re all about a Halloween-filled October, guys.
As soon as October 1st arrives there’s only one thing we *really* care about. What the hell we’re going to wear for Halloween! Hence this round up of the best nails to do yourself or take to the salon for a creepy manicure.

If you’re not a fan of a fancy dress marathon on Halloween weekend, the easiest way to get into the ghoulish spirit of things is a fun mani. Take a look at some of our faves from Instagram and then copy away…
Mix your textures with matte black and glittering green for a gloopy design that looks straight out of a horror film.
Scary Teeth Nails
More matte fun, this time as the backdrop to a seriously scary ring-finger-mouth. Perfect for pointy stiletto nails.
Not a fan of gross ‘n’ scary? These glossy ghosts are cute enough for every day.
If you find yourself with some time on your hands, get your nail kit out and try painting a few different designs on a pale pumpkin base.
Don’t forget to give your toes some Halloween lovin’. We’re into this Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired pedi.
Bag Of Bones
For the clever mani fans out there, why not separate your skeleton across two nails then happily snap him together/apart?
Halloween For Daytime
A clear base with red slime will actually work all through October. Even for the office.
Strong stomachs required. Paint a layer of white, wait for your base to dry then fingerprint fake blood onto each nail. Seal with a top coat.
A garish green Frankenstein with stitched friends is a fun Halloween manicure to try out.
Add some sparkle to your spooky manicure with glittery stones. Just the thing to break up the spooky…
Forever (Frightening) Friends
If you’re a pro at nail designs or are hitting the salon, go all out and get a different creepy character on each spindly nail.
The Corpse Bride
We are absoloutely loving this design of Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride intricately drawn onto long, talon-esque nails. What better way to pay homage to Halloween!?
If simple nails are more your style, make an appointment for an ombre design which still incorporates the two colours that represent Halloween; blood red and deathly black.
In Girl world, Halloween is the one night a year you can put a graveyard on your fingernails and no other girls can say anything about it…
