Halloween Nail Art Ideas
Let’s get bloody!
You only need to choose a nail polish that matches your skin tone and a bloody red polish for the blood effect. This will create an illusion like your blood is dripping right from your cuticles.
This design creates an illusion like a vampire has bitten your nails with blood drips. You may want to follow the link below the image for the complete tutorial.
Easy 1-2-3 steps with the help of a dotting tool, make four dots and connect them to the tips of your nails, and voila~~ you have that bloody nails look! But of course, you need to apply a top coat, okay?
How about this blood splash on your nails? I guess, you won’t worry about the dimensions in creating this design..
This may look gross but admit it, the creator was very creative! She used nail pearls to create some bumps and made it look like pimples. Geez, this made me remember my face years ago hahaha 🙂 Ewww!
Eyes on you!
Bloodshot eyes are really freaking creepy! Perfect for Halloween, this will surely scare most especially the kids! Anyway, you don’t need to be a pro to create a bloodshot nail design like this, you’ll only need dotting tools and a brush, and of course, white, red, blue, and black nail polish! A video tutorial is available on Polishpedia’s YouTube channel.
Oh, and this cute spooky eyes! Whether you have short or long nails, this nail design will surely look cool on you! Again, it’s easy to do, dotting tools will be your buddy while doing this on your nails.
This spooky eyes with a glittery silver polish on the ring finger nail is pretty similar to the above nail art (the ghost eyes). Likewise, will look good for both short and long nails.
The rising of the dead..
This mummy water marble with googly eyes is sooo~~ cute! You can also do this on free hand even without water marbling. Check out the full tutorial on Collette’s YouTube channel, I’ve provided the link below the mummy nail’s picture.
Never thought that Frankenstein monster could look so cute like this! Ha-ha 🙂 Just like the mummy on the above picture, you can also use googly eyeballs for the eyes instead of using dotting tools.
Cute and easy ghost nail art for you to try with just a dotting tool and a small brush to paint the glasses! Whoa, even ghost wears glasses? LOL 🙂 Not too scary but the spirit of Halloween is with your nails though.

Gravestones? It’s simple yet looks nice, isn’t it?
Oh, that skulls!
With just a dotting tool and small brush, this is very easy to design for Halloween! Go grab a black and white polish and start designing your skulls and stripes!

It’s all about spider webs! You can do it easily with just white and black polish.
Here– spider + webs! To create a spider, dotting tools are there to help you, and a small brush for the spider’s legs and webs.
This is such a playful nail design for Halloween. When I saw the spider + bats, the first thing comes into my mind was Spiderman and Batman Ha-ha~~ 🙂
This design is perfect for ladies with longer and wider nail beds.
Here comes Freddie!
This is perfect if you’re going to dress up like in Nightmare on Elm Street movie! Be careful if you’re going to pick this nail art for your Halloween get-up cos it might hurt you or anyone, in addition to that, it might break easily.
