There are two types of people during Halloween: the one who pulls out all the stops in hopes of winning "best in costume", and the one who stays in with a good old horror film and all the Halloween candy.
Whichever camp you're in, here's something to get you in the spirit of things: Halloween-inspired nail art.
We rounded up five ghoulishly gorgeous manicures you can try at home. Halloween ensemble is not required—although these will look great with any costume!
Witchy Stiletto Nails
Channel your inner witch with these gradient black nails. Its pointy shape gives it the ultimate creep factor. You can also dress it up with a glitter polish on top for a galaxy effect.
Spider Web Nails
Give your black manicure a little oomph this Halloween with a spider web overlay. You can even match it with spider web eye makeup.
Gold Coffin Nails
Who knew coffins could look so chic? To recreate, just apply a coat of matte black nail polish then using a gold marker, draw the outlines.
If you're looking for a last-minute costume, just match these brilliant cat claw nails with a little black dress and a pair of cat ears. You’re welcome!
Blood Splatter Nails
This ghastly nail art design reminds us of a gory film, making it the perfect Halloween mani. You can DIY the blood splatter by dipping a slim straw on red polish then blowing directly on your nails. It can get messy, so make sure to have tissue on hand.
