If one thing’s for certain, gloriously ghoulish nail art that’s spooky yet stylish is the holy grail of halloween nail looks. Whether you want to up your game this spooky season or prefer to keep it low-key, there's absolutely something for everyone. More of a minimalist? Glossy black nails are always a classic, or you could even switch in a moody matte top coat to live out your inner grunge-girl. Whatever flavour you’re serving this year, we've rounded up the best five Halloween nail designs that are trending on the ‘gram for you to recreate right now.
LOOK 1: BLOOD SPATTER FADE.
If you’re after something that’s a little edgier why not dive into the plethora of blood trickle designs that nail the theme but still look hella fierce. Our personal favourite? Pair a blood red with a blush pink fade for the ultimate cool girl vibe this halloween. The perfect colour for the job? It’s got to be the Candy Coat Candy Stix® Gel Polish - Erin - Nº 313 or the Candy Coat PRO Palette - Sally - Nº 1382.
LOOK 2: THE SPOOOOOOKY FRENCH.
Try out the genius ghost Frenchies we keep spotting (just give a couple of tweaks to the shape and add a ghoul face using our CANDY COAT Dotting Tool to your French tips). It's a dinky detail that even minimalists can get on board with that still screams ‘oh so chic’. Get it ;).
LOOK 3: FADE TO BLACK.
We’re totally obsessed with this look that’s giving us all the Adams Family vibes this year and it’s deliciously simple to achieve. Just make sure to leave a decent amount of your natural nail uncovered to ensure that the full effect of the fade is revealed. If you fancy a slight twist on traditional black, why not give deep navy a go? Choose from either the Candy Coat PRO Palette - Lola - Nº 162 or the super convenient Candy Coat Candy Stix® Gel Polish - Frida - Nº 493.
LOOK 4: PUMPKIN XXL.
If you’re already a big fan of the longer the better than this one will have you shaking in your boots. The shape! The colour! We’re obsessed. Choose between the CANDY COAT Classic Gel Polish in No.33, the Candy Coat PRO Palette - Wendy - N. 224, or the Candy Coat Candy Stix® Gel Polish - Evie - Nº 074 for the perfect pumpkin orange. Thank us later.
LOOK 5: SPIDER CHIC.
Spiders are everywhere this season, you heard it here first! What better way to combine the classic winter staple of a glossy black nail with the freshness of a natural pink and cute spider artwork?! For a shade that’s blacker than black it’s got to be the CANDY COAT Classic Gel Polish in No. 87.
