The season’s spookiest nail art is also super chic.
Halloween will look different this year, there’s no doubt about that, but just because we can’t dress up in elaborate costumes and hit the town with our friends doesn’t mean we have to ignore the holiday entirely. Your nails are one of the easiest ways to celebrate the spooky season, and depending on your skill level, you can even draw inspiration for your next at-home manicure or gel set. So if you’re looking for an outlet for all your Halloween spirit, allow these 10 nail art designs to inspire you.
Just because you can’t go trick-or-treating in a classic white sheet doesn’t mean your nails are limited to plain black polish.
