Halloween is here and, if you've already got your costume, hairstyle and makeup sorted then that's all very well and good, but have you thought about your nails? If not, why not? No Halloween costume is complete without matching freaky fingertips! Don't worry, though, as we've done all of the hard work for you and scoured the Instagram accounts of our favorite stars to bring you some spooky nail-spiration!
Orange, green, black and red are classic Halloween colors so be sure to work at least one of them into your manicure - just be sure that it matches your outfit. Halloween is the perfect excuse to unleash your creativity by playing with color, texture and detail. So, as far as we're concerned, a classic nude manicure is a wasted opportunity!
This is the time to mix dark, somber shades of polish with fun detail. Deep berry hues and jewel tones will all work a (trick or) treat! Why not reinvent the classic French manicure by painting the tips of your nails an intense black or oxblood red, rather than snow white? Or, for a cute and playful look, you could always decorate accent nails with skulls, pumpkins or crosses!
Another option is to change up your look with a top coat. Whether you go eerily iridescent, spookily sparkly or matte and magic is totally up to you! If you haven't quite developed a steady hand, or if you're just feeling a little lazy at the end of the week, then press on nails are an easy, time-saving option.Happy Halloween!
