Halloween is almost here and sadly, I haven’t flooded you all with Halloween nail art. I’ve wanted to, but sadly I haven’t had enough time for nail art. To make up for it, I’ve decided to share with you 13 Halloween nail art looks from the past! A few of them are from my very earliest days of nail art, so it’s possible that the scariest part might be how bad the manicure is. I honestly still like all of them though – Halloween is a fantastic theme to do nail art for! Make sure to let me know which look was your favourite! I hope you’ll be trying one out this year. I’m starting off with one of those that it’s pretty scary how bad my cuticles looked – but I still really wanted to include this one because I love the nail art itself. I think this base was perfect for a Halloween theme and with spiderwebs, spiders, and bats, it has everything you need. This was the original post with all the details. Of course, you knew that there would be at least a few water marbles in a post like this! These water marbled mummies were one of my Halloween posts from last year and they were a lot of fun. This is actually one of the easiest water marble patterns to create, so go for it! Unlike the previous one, this combination of skulls and glitter doesn’t require any special nail art techniques. You do need the right polishes and some appropriately Halloween-themed water decals or stickers, though! The polishes are a Halloween duo from Love Thy Polish and they’re fantastic. This was a much more recent Halloween-appropriate look and is perfect for a geeky Halloween (in case you don’t know, the reference is a Dr Who episode). I didn’t specifically do this for Halloween, but the fact that it was October definitely influenced my choice! Possibly my favourite Halloweeny nail polish is China Glaze Bump in the Night. It’s black, it’s textured, and it’s perfect for this Black Widow nail art. I used a different black texture in this one but it’s also good for Halloween. What makes this one though is the skulls from Nail Candi – perfect for a super quick and blinged out Halloween manicure!
Yes, another water marble. For this one I just went with a combination of Halloween colours and put them together. I loved the outcome! I used the sugarspun technique for this spiderwebby look. The spiders themselves didn’t come out as boldly as I’d originally intended, but then again, aren’t they even more frightening if you can’t see where they are?This is another old one and I just went with a combination of Halloween-themed stamping and bright orange. Simple but perfect for the season!This is a look that is very fun to create and it’s also both simple and striking. Just use a straw to blow some polish onto your nails! You don’t have much control over the result but that means you can get a variety of looks with the technique. It can be done using any colours, but combine a nude and a red and you have blood spatter nails.
My third and final water marble – here I tried to create a water marbled spider web. You can see it best on my middle and index fingers. Of course, the addition of the red spider with 3D eyes helps too!
Another spider look! For this one, I freehanded spider webs and added the spidery studs. My final one is a classic Halloween look. I combined the colours of Halloween with some texture and created bats flying through dead trees.
Which of these is your favourite for Halloween? If you want to see a new Halloween look, don’t worry, I’ll have one for you tomorrow!
