Get in the Halloween Spirit with BOO-tiful Nails!

You have your room decked out with pumpkins and spider webbing all over the walls, your costume is all planned and Halloween is finally here! What you don’t have; however, is a way to paint your nails in preparation for the crazy fun-filled holiday. Here are some adorable nail art ideas to get you in the Halloween spirit!

Pumpkin

Step 1: Apply a base coat, followed by two coats of orange nail polish—make sure to let your nails dry before starting the nail art!

Step 2: Dip the tip of a toothpick into a black nail polish. Using the dipped toothpick, make two small triangles in the middle of your nail. These will be the eyes of the pumpkin! Tip: The less polish you have on the toothpick, the easier it is to make the shapes.

Step 3: Dip the toothpick end into black nail polish once more. Make a jagged line underneath the two eyes, at the tip of your nail. This will be the mouth of the pumpkin!

Step 4: Almost done! Dip the tip of another toothpick into a green nail polish. Using the dipped toothpick, make an uneven line across the base of your nail. This will be the top of the pumpkin!

Tip: Make tiny vertical marks coming off of the line to look like pumpkin leaves.

Spiderweb

Step 1: Apply a base coat, followed by two coats of purple nail polish.

Step 2: Dip the tip of a toothpick into a sparkly, silver polish. Using the dipped toothpick, make three lines extending from the left corner of your nail.

Step 3: Still using the dipped toothpick, connect the lines with either straight or U-shaped lines to create the web!

Blood-Spatter

Step 1: Apply a base coat, followed by two coats of black nail polish.

Step 2: Dip the tip of a toothpick in red nail polish, and make three random dots around the middle of your nail.

Step 3: With the same dipped toothpick, make an even line along the tip of your nail. Then connect the dots to the line.

Candy Corn

Step 1: Apply a base coat, followed by two coats of orange nail polish.

Step 2: Use the brush of a yellow nail polish to make a straight line across the tip of your nail. Be sure to wipe off most of the polish so that it doesn’t apply too thick.

Step 3: Do the same thing as above, using a white nail polish brush, making a line across the base of your nail.

Frankenstein

Step 1: Apply a base coat, followed by two coats of green nail polish.

Step 2: Dip the tip of a toothpick into black nail polish. Create a horizontal line at the base of your nail, with three vertical lines running perpendicular through it.

Step 3: Dip the tip of another toothpick into yellow nail polish. Make two small dots in the middle of your nail (these will be Frankie’s eyes!).

Step 4: Using the toothpick dipped in black nail polish, make a jagged line at the tip of your nail.

Step 5: Finally, add two smaller black dots to the previous yellow dots.

Moon

Step 1: Apply a base coat, followed by two coats of a vibrant purple nail polish.

Step 2: Dip the tip of a toothpick into yellow nail polish. Using the tip, make three random small dots on your nail.

Step 3: Still using the dipped toothpick, make a half-moon shape on the top corner of your nail.

Step 4: Dip the tip of another toothpick into white nail polish. Using the tip, make two cloud shapes by clumping multiple random specs on your nail.

Cat

Step 1: Apply a base coat, followed by two coats of yellow nail polish.

Step 2: Using the brush of a black nail polish, make a half circle shape on the tip of your nail.

Step 3: Dip the tip of a toothpick into the black nail polish. Using the tip, make two small triangles at the top of the half circle. These will be the kitty’s ears!

Step 3: Dip the tip of another toothpick into white nail polish. Make two large dots on the half circle using the toothpick tip.

Step 4: Finally, dip the tip of a toothpick into green nail polish. Make a thick vertical line on each of the previous white dots to make the cat eyes!

Skeleton

Step 1: Apply a base coat, followed by two coats of black nail polish.

Step 2: Using the brush of a white nail polish, make a thick square starting from the tip of your nail and ending at the center of your nail.

Step 3: Still using the brush, make a circle that touches the top of the square.

Step 4: Using the tip of a toothpick dipped in black nail polish, make three vertical lines close to the tip of your nail, on the square.

Step 5: Using the same toothpick, make an upside-down V at the center of your nail.

Step 6: Almost there! Now make two large black dots above the V to act as the eyes of the skeleton.
