Bewitching nail art ideas for your inner Sabrina the Teenage Witch…

I’m a sucker for any festive occasion; Easter, Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, I love them all but, past a certain age, it can look a little childish to celebrate outside of the day itself. Halloween is just around the corner and even though it is often the neglected child, born between summer and Christmas, I want to celebrate. Costumes in the office in can draw the wrong kind of attention so how can I get in the ‘spirit? (get it?) of Halloween without looking crazy?

Nails.

A friend of mine was sporting a set of glorious pumpkin orange nails the other day, each with a little face meticulously drawn on. It was the perfect, subtle nod to All Hallow’s Eve that I was looking for and it seems like I’m not the only one.Bewitching ideas

Andrea Horan from?Tropical Popical said ?we’re big fans of going wild with your nails so Halloween is always popular for nail art for us. We’re trying to incorporate designs that have a bang of Halloween off then but don’t make you look mental rocking them out during the day either so people can get away with wearing their works of art for longer. That’s the thing about Halloween, it gives people the chance to walk a bit more on the wild side, even if it is just on their nails?

Here are some of the most bewitching designs on the web to inspire your spooky mani ahead of October 31st.
