An easy style for our nails is to draw eyes on them. This makes people feel that they are alive, as you can see in the following image.

Ghosts and skulls are Halloween classics, perfect to match our look, regardless of the costume chosen. One advantage of this design is that it is based on two colors as basic as white and black. No doubt this can inspire you and can be used in many designs.

Although nail decorations are often fun, we can also choose the most terrifying nail decorations and costumes and makeup so we can be really scary. For these bloody nails, monsters or fangs are perfect choices.


You can also choose to draw some eyes, which in short is not that very complicated to do. You have to paint the nails in white, then paint two circles in the center, one in blue and one in black. Finally a few lines of red are added to resemble a little blood. By using a thin brush you can make red lines and, first and foremost, let the nails dry with the base in white and then make blue and black circumferences.


A type of decoration that we like a lot is the one that «experiments» with different colors. I have already said that black and orange are two of the colors that are mostly used for Halloween. In spite of how many proposals based precisely on these colors we may see, we wanted to show you nice different nail decorations. It is as simple as painting your nails in black, you can apply the «glitter» or not, your choice, and you leave one nail to paint in orange and also draw a small spider web with the spider included if you want.

Halloween nails: colors


As we’ve already mentioned before, when it comes to choosing shades, there are certain colors that we will see more often next Halloween on everyones nails. Black, white, red and orange are ideal to decorate our nails and to achieve the perfect design for the Halloween party. If you realize it, with three or four colors we can make lots of decorations and that may even inspire us when it comes to choose a costume later.

The mixture of these colors, either in drawings or while mixing styles, is the perfect combination to get our nail decorations to stand out on our costume, and of course, on our hands. Look at these nails in which three shades have been chosen: black, red and white. With these three colors we have been able to decorate our nails with different drawings, such as a spider, a pumpkin and, of course, a pair of spider webs that at the same time are from the spider different.

There’s also room for softer colors and the brighter ones in the Halloween nail decoration as these are trending this season. Not everything has to be necessarily dark colors or sinister decorations: the mixture of glamor and terror can also come in handy in order to get a perfect manicure.


The black and white combination also suggests that also lead to us decorating our nails with skulls, quite popular during Halloween. Try to paint your nails black and, with the help of a brush, shape it by decorating the nail drawing the skull. Leave the rest of the nail in black. Or you can paint the base in black and make the drawing of the skull on top of it.
