HALLOWEEN EVENT: Halloween Nail Art Ideas!

Hey everyone! To kick off the Halloween Event, I though I could start with some cool Halloween Nail Art Ideas! Fun! Below are some ideas that I had, so feel free to use them! If you create any of these Nail Art Ideas, or even your own, feel free to comment youre picture/link! I would be happy to check it out! Which of these ideas would you like to see most during the Halloween Event here at Maggie's Teen Life? Remember that Guest Posts are still open for grabs, if you want to do a Halloween/Fall themed guest post, contact me at

Now onto the Halloween Nail Art Ideas?

Jack-O-Lantern Nail(s)~ At first (expecially for me) creating a Jack-O-Lantern would be really hard! But it really isn't. All you need to do is paint your nail(s) orange, and with a black or yellow polish, go in and create eyes and a little mouth! Easy!

Boo! Accent Nail~ This nail art idea would be easy, yet hard for me. All you would have to do is paint your nails a base color, and then write "Boo!" with striper brush as an accent nail. Easy! for one hand, but writing it with your non-dominant hand would be hard for those challenged people (like me). Perhaps you could ask someone else to write it!

Halloween Altnernating Nails~ This is probably one of the easiest nail art ideas in this post. Halloween Altnernating Nails! Just take a black polish and an orange polish, and paint every other nail the opposite color. For example; one nail orange, the next one black, next nail orange, next nail black, etc. Fun and sooo easy! I need that!

Fake Nails~ This is proably another easy altnernative for Halloween Nail Art! Buy them already decorated! I have been to Walgreens and seen some awesome fake nails by Kiss! Fun, and another easy way!

Dripping Blood Spooky French~ This one is a "Spooky" (instead of funky) French! All you need to do is paint your nails a base color of either black or white. Then get a blood red nail polish, and red nail polish at the tips kind of drizzled to get the "dripping blood" effect.

Eyeball Stew Nail Art~ That would be some stew I WOULD NOT want to eat, haha! For this easy nail art, paint your colors a base color of a color of your choice (preferrably green, purple, or orange, which are Halloween colors). Next, take a dotting tool or other home remedy to dot random which dots all over your nails. Now, take a smaller dotting tool and dot black circles in the white circles to create the pupils. Your Eyeball Stew Nails are served!

Halloween French~ A spooky twist on a classic design! Start by painting your nails a Halloween color, most likely black or orange, and wait for it to dry COMPLETELY! Next, take some tape and tape your nail off to where you can make a tape-french. Take an opposing color (if base is black, use orange; if base is orange, use black), and create your french tip! Tada! A Halloween french! You could also paint your nails with a clear, and tape your french. Paint the french orange, and go in with a striper to create stripes! Once again, another Halloween french!

Candy Corn Nails~ Make your nails look like the yummy candy, just remember not to eat them! First start off painting your nails a solid white. Then go in with your orange and yellow and create the stripes for the candy corn! Easy as well, candy corn! This would also be fun with a one accent nail!

Nail Stickers~ Here's the easy way! Nail Stickers! With my current Halloween Manicure, I have nail stickers one (post coming soon). Super easy and not much time taken at all! Gotta love it!

Sally Hansen Salon Effects~ So easy! And no dry time! These are knock-off Minx, in Halloween Patterns! I believe I made a post on these earlier in the year. You can find them at your local pharmacies (such as Walgreens and CVS), or online at:

Crackle Halloween Nails~ Super in style, and super easy! Start off by painting your nails your favorite Halloween color. Wait to dry. Then go back and paint them with a crackle topcoat in an opposing color! Like I said, easy!

Scary Ghost Nail Art~ Scary, and easy! Perfect combo! Paint your nails with a white base. Once dry go in and paint two eyes, and a long mouth in black! You're done! This would also be fun as an accent nail!

Well, those are about all the Halloween Nail Art Ideas my brain could handle! I'm sure there are a few more bobbling around in my head! Thanks for reading!
