Want to make a skeleton look slightly less mean? Add a pink bow on it. Then try a mummy wrap with pink bandages instead of white.


9. Black Silhouettes on a Pink Sky

Trade the inky sky for a pink one.


10. Mint Stitches

This is a perfect nail art idea for newbies. Plus, the mint background is a creepy-cool take that you don’t see everyday.


11. Embellished Halloween Nails

Add some embellishment to switch up a traditional Halloween mani.


12. Spooky Lockets

Spooky lockets for @listentoliz ????✨??

13. Witch’s Kitchen Nail Art

Ever wondered what a witches kitchen looks like? Well this is it! The true witch doesn't embrace modern lighting (and indeed modern cleaning….look at those cobwebs ?), preferring instead to strain her eyes reading her recipe book by the light of a dingy candle…not even a scented one may I add! No pumpkin spice here people! Let's move in closer to see what she's cooking up shall we….shepherds pie…meatloaf….a nice hot curry…..oh wait….whats this….? roasted bat wings on a bed of crunchy pan fried rattlesnakes…..?…..erm….shall we move on to Nigella's kitchen instead maybe….? . ? – @aengland_official Symphony in Blue and Silver and Dancing With Nureyev for the gradient. . ? – Stamping polish – @mundodeunas Dark grey. . ?

What, you thought that witches don’t have kitchens? Now, you’re probably thinking about what their other rooms are like.

Cute for all year, but right on for Halloween.
