Halloween nail art inspiration to get you in the spooky spirit

Halloween nail art inspiration to get you in the spooky spirit

The spookiest Halloween nails to get you in the eerie spirit.

Last year, costumes only came in handy if you’ve had a Zoom planned for Halloween. Trick or treating was cancelled, meeting other households was cancelled, fun was basically off the cards until 2021.

This year I have toddler-at-Christmas excitement for every minuscule occasion. Rejoice, for Gogglebox, Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK, Bake Off and Strictly are all back on TV, there’s a new Bond in the cinema, there are winter coats you can try on in the shop and milk for tea in the fridge. Now that October has landed, having an actual festive occasion with which to celebrate and decorate for is sending me over the edge.

I only want to watch movies that make me leave the bedroom light on, I will only eat and drink that which has been pumpkin-spiced, I want to spend every spare moment frolicking in a pumpkin patch or decorating my home like an American Christian Girl Autumn influencer. Whether you have your pumpkins already picked for carving or you’re still lamenting the end of summer, I offer these Hallowen nail art inspirations to you. Treat yourself to a spooky Halloween manicure or make an attempt at artistry on the tiniest canvas of all for joy every time you look down on your hands. And if that doesn’t perk you up, you just need to buy more miniature pumpkins. There is nothing on this Earth more joyful than miniature pumpkins.

Scroll down for the best Halloween nail art inspiration to try your hand at or to screenshot for your next salon visit.
