30 brilliant Halloween nail art ideas
Cobwebs and sparkles
A statement nail will make your design all the more striking. We love how this cobweb stands out against the black glitter.
Glossy black and red nails
We love the inverted designs on these nails, plus they'll go really well with those Louboutin heels…
Orange and black
We love this grown-up take on classic Halloween colours. Create a smoke-like effect by swirling black polish on the still-wet orange base.
Have a last-minute Halloween party invite? No problem. Just paint the tips of your nails orange and add a messy cross-stitch using a fine brush.
This makes us feel all cosy and ready to embrace Autumn.
The white lightening bolts make an impact against a navy background on these cool nails.
Nightmare Before Christmas nail art
If you're a fan of the Tim Burton film, you'll love these.
Bats nail art
Black and orange not your thing? Try these bats, painted over a backdrop of pastels and glitter.
If all else fails, black glitter over a coat of black polish is the solution.
Draw inspiration from the candy you'll be handing out at Halloween.
For a sophisticated take on Halloween, look no further than these two-tone black and burnt orange nails.
Snow White nails
Take inspiration from the iconic fairytale by painting your talons a deep red and add an ombre effect by dapping black polish at the tip of the nail with a make-up sponge.
How cute is this little pumpkin? Not only is it super impressive, it's deceptively easy to do. All you'll need is a small paintbrush.
Another incredible speedy nail design.
Dressing up as a mummy? Why not take the costume right down to your fingernails with a bit of white polish and white paper?
Gold skull nail art
While the gold skull makes this excellent for Halloween, it also has the rock 'n' roll element of some good festival nail art.
All you'll need for this design is black and white nail polish. Easy peesy!
If you're not keen on glitter, this design will look equally nice without.
Polka dot nails
This nail design is versatile enough to be worn all year round. Use orange and black for Halloween, red, green and white for Christmas, and pastels come spring.
Pointy black nails
Simple yet to the point, if you'll excuse the pun!
Granted, this takes a bit more skill to paint this spooky scene, but the effect is rather brilliant. Tip: Paint the scene on blank fake nails first, as it'll be easier to use both hands for this.
We love this intricate gold design.
Cat nail art
Negative nail art is big news this season, and this cat design on naked nails is the perfect nod to the trend.
Autumn leaves nail art
If you're not a dab hand at drawing, get some stencils to design the leaves.
Metallic spider and cobweb nails
The only thing better than cobweb nail art? Cobwebs and spiders of course.
Disney meets Halloween
Mickey Mouse gets a spooky makeover with this cool design.
Moon and stars nail art
This could definitely double up as cute Christmas nail art.
Day of the Dead nail art
Intricate and colourful!
Cemetery nail art
Black and white designs are often the most striking thanks to the sharp contrast.
A little grim, yes, but these blood-spattered nails definitely get the scary message across. Plus, they take no time to recreate and don't require a steady hand.
