Top 10 Halloween Nail Art Inspirations
When it comes to Halloween, we like to go obsessively overboard. That means as soon as October 1st arrives, everything that was once normal gets a spooky spruce – even our nails.
Whether you’re adding the final frightening touches to your costume or in need of some last-minute ghoulishness, a spine-chilling manicure is what will really get you noticed.
So, to help you get into the scary spirit, we’ve done the rounds and compiled a gallery of incredible Halloween nail art.
1. Pumpkin polish
It’s not really Halloween until you get your hands on a pumpkin – or in this case, vice versa. This pumpkin-inspired nail look is perfect if you’re dressing tame this year and want to add a pop of cute and festive colour to your costume. (Image: Pinterest)

2. Haunted hands
Give your hands a taste of a haunted cemetery with this eerie creation – it’s surprisingly easier to achieve than you think. Simply coat your nails in a deep purple paint, grab some scary stencils and match with a zombie outfit for a seriously mysterious manicure. (Image: Pinterest)

4. Cobwebbed coffins
Coffins covered in cobwebs – we really couldn’t get any more Halloween-y if we tried. Creepy crawlies are enough to give anyone the jitters, which is exactly why we love this dark manicure for a spider-phisticated look. (Image: Pinterest)
5. French mani-gore
Not for the faint-hearted, this classic manicure takes a gory twist – and it's probably the only time you’ll ever get away with cracked and broken nails. Perfect for a dose of dramatic horror, this spook-tacular design will 100% give the scare-factor. (Image: Pinterest)

8. Spine-chilling skulls
If Halloween isn’t really your thing but you don’t want to feel totally left out then try giving yourself a skull-inspired mani. It’s a classic bone-chiller that’s not too dramatic, but still provides a rock-chic feel. (Image: Pinterest)

Pair these nails with the perfect Halloween vampy lip and you'll be looking spookilicious in no time.
9. Na na na na na na na na Bat-hands
Combine sweet polka dots with menacing bats and what do you get? A mysterious manicure that is girly but gothic. We love this look as you can easily switch up the colours and make it your own. (Image: Pinterest)
10. Hair-raising horror-inspired
These horror movie-inspired hands are the ultimate match for the girls and boys that spend time on the all-important details. Perfect for the Halloween-obsessed, you can bring your favourite horror films to life – although Chucky is pretty good at giving us the creeps.
So, there we have it: 10 fantastically frightful nail art designs. Halloween comes with no rules, so this is the perfect time to get your creative cauldron out – the more gruesome, the better.
