Nail Art Ideas You Need to Try this Halloween

Nail Art Ideas You Need to Try this Halloween!

Halloween is the time to push your creativity to the limit! That's why you need to try one of these spooky Halloween nail art ideas.

Nail art is often the only way to express your creativity, and Halloween only helps! Nail polish companies get into it as well with themed releases like OPI. OPI tends to have a nail solution for every holiday, and that’s what makes them so popular. You can expect the same from other companies like Essie, Sally Hansen, and Butter Nail Polish. They come up with cute colors, and all you need is the right nail technician to make your vision come to life!


If you are short on ideas for this holiday, you can try one (or more) of these ideas for a fun and festive nail design.


3D nail art

This is nail art that pops, literally. You may have seen people with bows, stones, and other things pop up of their nail but there is nothing like a Micheal Myers “Halloween” mask or a “Harry Potter” wand popping up of your nails. When using a theme, 3D art adds a punch to the effect. You can find some cool designs on Etsy!


If you’re not the most artistic or you're on a budget, there's no reason to panic! You can always pull out the nail stickers and get creative! Get your base color on, let it dry, apply the stickers of your choice, and then cover with a topcoat. Voila! You have a creative and fun Halloween look! You can find all of the nail stickers you need with “Kiss” nail art.

Nail polish designs

There’s nothing like a good old “blood” stained nail or an ombre crystal ball. You can choose a simpler design or turn your nails into a canvas. That’s the best part about using nail polish to create your design. Check out OPI, Essie, and Butter nail polish for some awesome matte and glossy colors. Of course, you’ll need a really good nail artist, but you can’t go wrong!


Nail covers and Press on Nails

Two words… Freddy Krueger! Nail covers or slips are cool if you want to take things down a more dramatic route. You can pay homage to Freddy with “knife” fingertip covers or take a bewitched approach and go for a more elegant look. The best part about this is that you can put them on and take them off as you please and you don’t have to commit to a nail design! Another non-committal way to celebrate with your nails is to use press-on designs. Not only do they come in all shapes and sizes, but you can also take advantage of someone else’s genius design ideas. Check out Broadway Press on nails for some cool looks.


Scary Movie Theme 

A cool way to celebrate Halloween with your nails is to use the theme of your favorite movie! Classic Halloween movies like “Halloween,” “Hocus Pocus,” and other scary movies such as “It” or “Urban Legends” can give you a leg up on the competition. You can incorporate the iconic phrases and props from the movie. The best way to do this is to go with longer nails. You get more surface area, and it’s easy to spot. 

These ideas can take you anywhere. Each style can easily become a conversation piece, and with a no-rules-apply mentality, you can go as far as you want with the design. Add some of these nail art ideas to your costume, or if you can’t dress up this Halloween at least your nails are poppin'!
