The Best Halloween Nails For Spooktacular Style Inspo

Halloween is the most fun time of year- you get to dress up however you want – you can go cute or scary – the choice is yours. If you don’t have time to go all out with your Halloween costume this year, you can still join in the fun by giving yourself a spooky manicure. Here are some of our favorite Halloween inspired nail designs on Instagram.

Sultry Snakeskin

These snakeskin nails from @nail_unistella are divine. What are the chances of us trying them out for Halloween? High. What are the chances of us wearing them at Christmas too? Higher still.

Jurassic Park Nails

@NaomiNailsNYC also gets the thumbs up from us for her bombastic dinosaur nails. They are creative, brilliant, and the perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit mid-week at the office.

Psy-Trance Nails

Naomi also thought up these crazy psychedelic nails. She describes them as “psychedelic potion” and they are spooktacular.


@Betina_Goldstein’s cat-eye nails are a little more subtle, but still spooky. They also don’t look too tricky to replicate, which is a definite bonus.

Grizzly Eyeballs

@PolishMePrettyNailBar has delivered a bunch of awesome Halloween nail designs this year. These gruesome eyeballs are up there with our favorites.
