Must-Try Halloween Nail Designs for 2023

Craft a mysterious aura with silhouettes of bats, witches, or haunted houses against a moonlit sky or even a simple, plain backdrop! Some clients want to get in the spirit without going overboard, so silhouettes are the perfect minimalist option.

Ghost Accents:

Everyone loves ghosts! Whether your clients prefer spooky ghosts or cute ghosts, there’s an option for everyone. You can even add glitter nail polish for a more glamorous look. Why not try neon colours that will glow in the dark under blacklight?

Crimson Ombre:

Blend deep reds into pitch black for a blood-curdling ombré effect, perfect for clients seeking a more subtle yet thematic design. Using an Ombre nail brush, you can create a seamless spooky blend.

Detailed Pumpkin Art:

Move beyond the simple pumpkin jack-o’-lantern. Think of intricate carvings, shimmering lights, and shadow effects. If your client likes the idea of pumpkins but prefers more neutral tones, you can draw them in nude nail polish or pink nail polish to get the perfect balance between spooky and elegant!

Lace Cobwebs:

Incorporate delicate lace patterns into the classic cobweb design for a touch of elegance amidst the spooky. You can use sticker transfers or attach tiny segments of real lace to create this effect. Make sure you top coat any segments for a long-lasting design.

Candy Corn Ombre:

Blend the iconic candy corn colours - white, orange, and yellow in a smooth ombre effect. It's a festive and fun take on the timeless ombre nails trend.

Geode Glamour:

For clients who prefer a more mystical Halloween look, Geode or Crystal Nails are the perfect choice. Mimic the intricate layers of natural geodes by blending deep purples, shimmering blues, and sparkling golds in a gradient effect. Try this with gold foil for the ultimate luxury!
