You may have figured out your Halloween costume and have been looking at creative makeup ideas, but you can’t forget about your nails. There are so many imaginative Halloween nail art designs from pumpkins to spiders to spooky monsters. If you had the time and patience, you could paint your nails a different Halloween design everyday in October and still be left with enough amazing nail art ideas that would keep you in the Halloween spirit well into the new year. The most difficult part is choosing what one to try first.
Check out 20 Halloween monster manicures you need to try:
This orange-and-black bat design covers all of the Halloween requirements.
Note: I don’t consider cats monsters, I just wanted to include them.
3. Vampire Face
If a blood dripping manicure isn’t your thing, this vampire face is a less squeamish alternative.
4. Ghost Faces
Who said that ghosts only have one bootiful expression?
You should use a glow in the dark nail polish too.
You don’t need a full face to know that this is Frankenstein. I love the shattered black French tips.
Remember that the bloody nail should always be next to the vampire.
8. Hocus Pocus
If you start painting your nails now, you might be done for Halloween.
As much as you’d like to, you can’t spend the entire day with your hands in this position.
Not even purple and green glitter can cheer poor old Frankenstein up.
11. Vampire Mouth
I wonder what color lipstick this vampire is wearing?
12. Monster Eyes
Not all monster manicures have to be creepy. This is as cute as a Disney manicure.
13. Owl Witches
Instead of doing the typical orange Halloween background, switch it up, and try blood red.
Switch the colors and this could become Game Of Thrones direwolf nail art.
15. Girly Mummy
Add some pink, a bow, and possibility some sparkles, and you have a girly mummy.
You can’t forget about Frankenstein’s bride and her amazing hair.
17. Black Cat
This is so simple, but so effective. Use three layers of topcoat for a high shine.
18. Witches Hats
To make this one even easier, paint the background one color instead of the subtle green gradient.
19. Jack Skellington
It isn’t Halloween without a Nightmare Before Christmas reference.
20. Bat Tips
This is a spooktacular update to a regular French manicure.
21. Tiny Ghosts
I don’t know if this is Casper, but he sure looks like a friendly ghost.
You can let everyone guess what type of monster is hiding in the dark.
