40 Great Nail Art Ideas – Halloween!

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another group post and today’s theme is Halloween. I just love Halloween as a theme for nail art and if you’ve been following my blog for a while, you might remember how crazy I went last October. I had a whole month of Halloween nail art with mummies, spiderwebs and more spiderwebs, textured bats, a Halloween-coloured water marble, a great combination of glitter and skulls, some really blinged-out skulls, blood spatter, and black widow nail art.

I summarised all of these and more in a post yesterday so go take a look at 13 different Halloween nail art looks.

This year I wished I could have done as many Halloween designs, but time constraints only let me do one. It’s a a good one though! I asked my husband for some ideas for Halloween nail art and he suggested I steer clear of traditional Halloween colours and do something in blue instead. I’d been feeling like painting some roses so this was what I finally came up with:Painted Fingertips | Roses around the gravestone for Halloween

This is really different to Halloween looks I’ve done in the past, but I love it! I was pretty happy with the roses and the gravestone and cat add the Halloween theme. Painted Fingertips | Roses around the gravestone for Halloween

I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and then added La Girl Crowd Surfing to make the background a little more Halloween-y. It doesn’t come through on my pictures so much, but you can see the sparkly flakies in the bottle and they’re more visible on my nails in real life. I used Sinful Colors Slate for the grey of the gravestone and used acrylic paints for all the rest.

What do you think? Is this something you would wear for Halloween or would you go with a more traditional orange and black look?
