Say goodbye to summer because the spooky season is almost here! It’s the perfect excuse to switch up our nails for the new season in true Halloween style.
These nail designs are simple and effective and you’ll be able to do these yourself at home – everything from subtle spiders to glitter pumpkins!
Simple White Ghosts
You can’t go wrong with these simple and whimsical ghosts! It gives a little nod to Halloween in a subtle and elegant manner. These cute ghosts look great paired with white French tips on every other nail.
Neon Orange Swirls
Orange is quintessentially Halloween-coded. Try out these abstract neon French tips that use organic swirls rather than following the natural shape of the nails. We love the addition of these black celestial details for a spookier look!
Deep Red Blood Drops
Red nails always work a charm so let’s take it up a notch with these deep red blood drops. The best thing about this design is that they can be as messy or neat as you want and they’ll still look true to the spooky season!
Celebrate Halloween with a twist on the classic French tip by painting these creepy stitches but keeping it minimal. A small brush and four slim lines per nail is all it takes! Keep a natural nude base or opt for another colour to make this design pop.
Go au natural with these minimal nude nails that have a little creepy crawly twist. These spooky spiders are delicate to look at but easy to paint so they’re the perfect nod to Halloween!
Black and White Spiderwebs
Let’s go spooky with these inverted spiderwebs! The black tips alone are striking enough but the addition of these simple spiderwebs really make the design pop. If you want to add a splash of colour, why not try and choose two contrasting colours to invert?
Autumnal Ghost Nails
This is perhaps the easiest and cutest Halloween nail art out there?! If you’re not too confident about your nail art skills, paint some autumnal block colours and make sure to include a white shade so you can add two eyes for the subtle look of a ghost!
White nails are always a timeless staple but see how these simple zigzag lines make up this adorable mummy – add two dots for eyes and this design really comes to life!
Spooky Cat Eyes
Feast your eyes on these spooky black cat eyes! We love the two-tone design that pairs a dramatic black with an eerie green to create a scary yet simple set of nails. These would look extra spooky if you elevated them with glow-in-the-dark nail polish!
If you can’t decide on one design, go for mismatched Halloween accents by combining all of your favourite looks in one! Keep them in a monochromatic colour palette so they look more cohesive.
Spooky Skeleton Bones
These skeleton bones are not for the faint of heart – another play on the monochrome colour palette but you’ll need a steady hand for this one! We’re loving the abstract look of how this turned out!
Say hello to Binx from Hocus Pocus! Don’t let a black cat cross your path but do paint them on your nails! For an extra air of magic, add some sparkle.
Take inspiration from Beetlejuice and dress up your nails for the occasion. The vertical stripes and green accents paired with sharp stiletto nails are a nod to the film but just as creepy on their own!
One of the most iconic Halloween films and the nail art to match! This looks super impressive but is relatively simple to do with a slim nail brush. Opt for some long nails and pair this with some cobwebs to tie in the rest of the nails.
Subtle Glitter Pumpkin
To all of my glitter lovers out there – this is the one for you! Try painting your nails in these vibrant orange shades (think glossy, matte and glitter!) and add a cute pumpkin to finish off the autumn look!
Black French Tips
If you’re after subtle Halloween nails, upgrade your basic black French tips with some cute witchy nail art. Bats, moons and black cats all make an appearance here which can be painted on or easily replicated with nail stickers!
Jack-O-Lantern Nail Design
Jack-o’-lanterns are iconic for this time of year and would be the perfect addition to your nail art. Pair your creepy Jack-o’-lantern with other accents like glitter nails, stripes or polka dots for a whimsical feel.
French Tip Bats
Put a twist on the classic French tip and opt for some spooky bats across each nail. But why stop there? Defy the classic colours of Halloween and go for a cute lilac shade if that’s more your style!
Neon Frankenstein Nails
These neon nails scream Frankenstein! The simple stitches and drip marks against a vibrant green really make the nails pop. So effective and easy to paint!
Minimalist Devil Nails
Devils are going to be big this Halloween! Unleash your inner devil with these minimalist devil accents. We’re loving the use of the devil flames complete with the horns and tail! Leave your nails nude for this because the devilish nail art speaks for itself.
