Moon goddess vibes

If you love all things witchy and are drawn to the dark side of All Hallows Eve, then the phases of the moon are the perfect way to express that.

We’ve watched the tutorials and honestly, there is no way we could do that. Here’s an easier way. Check out these amazingly detailed moon phase nail decals. These are easy to apply and will let anyone of any artistic level rock moon nails this Halloween season.

Candy corn nails

The only acceptable way to enjoy candy corn this Halloween season is by turning your nails into replicas of the famous candy.

You can do yellow, orange, white in either direction, do all your nails in the same order, or do the trend of doing four nails one way and the other nail the opposite way for a bit of fun.

Not only will you put a smile on people’s faces when they get the reference, but if you love to wear all black during the fall (or all of the time, right?) then these nails will match everything. Check out this tutorial by @nailsbyjema for an easy guide to get that staple look.

Ghosts and spider webs

If you want something more than solid colors, don’t want to deal with nail decals, but aren’t super confident in your artistic ability — we have a spooktacular answer.


Anyone can paint ghosts on their nails. It’s easy and even if you mess up a bit it’s fine. Ghosts aren’t solid beings so a little fluidity in the shape is great.

This tutorial by @IHeartNailArt will show you five different ghosts you can paint on your nails. You can do all five or find the one that’s easiest for you to do.


Spiderwebs are also easy for anyone to paint on their nails. And if the lines aren’t perfect, you can tell people the spider had a bit of caffeine that day. Webs are a cute way to bring Halloween flair to your nail game. This tutorial by @cutepolish is so simple to do.

Bloody good time

What’s Halloween without a little blood? Doing a bloody nail is on-trend for the season. You can either do blood dripping on all of your nails or pick only a few to do to make it pop.

Paint your nails white or black for the base. You can have the blood dripping from the top of your nail at the cuticle or start in the middle and have the blood dripping to the bottom of your nail. A quick YouTube video by @MySimpleLittlePleasures will help you out.

It’s the great nail art, Charlie Brown

Maybe you want to go cute for Halloween instead of spooky. How amazing would It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Browninspired nails be? You might want to leave this one to a professional and have a nail art technician replicate this perfect video from @JauntyJuli.

Not all Halloween nail art needs to be gory or scary. Embrace the nostalgia of your childhood and rock those Charlie Brown nails.

Don’t leave any Halloween theme out

A way to get your nails ready for Halloween when you have no idea which way you want to go is to have every nail be different.

Do each nail as one character from your favorite slasher movie. Have each nail be a simple Halloween theme, like a cat or a pumpkin. We found one of the most detailed tutorials from @NailsByJema that you will love.
