DIY Halloween Nails
You wouldn’t want to be caught dead wearing a costume on any day but October 31. So how can you celebrate in the days and weeks leading up to your favorite spooky holiday?
It’s simple! Paint your nails with blood red or pumpkin orange polish, add some black cat or spider web nail decals, and finish up with a light coat of silver glitter nail polish.
Here’s another idea—apply a set of long, pitch black press-on nails for an Elvira, Mistress of the Dark or bewitching look. Press-on nails take just minutes to apply, and they look absolutely haunting.
Specialty nail art is popular—and pricey—at professional nail salons. You can create the look yourself with colorful polishes, reusable press-on nails and trendy patterned nails. Don’t forget to decorate your toes. DIY Halloween nail art is perfect for pedicures too.
One of my favorite holiday looks doesn’t involve nail polish or decals. For a truly simple costume accessory, just slip on a pair of gloves with the nails built right in. Embellished gloves with built-in nails are guaranteed to turn heads at any festive gathering (though you may have a little difficulty with the chips and dip!)
Manicured nails are always in style, and during the fall season you can experiment with a rainbow of gorgeous harvest colors to get in the mood for All Hallow’s Eve.

Halloween Nail Art – Halloween Decals
Halloween Nail Art Water Tattoo Decals
These beautiful Halloween themed tattoos are applied with water–they are not peel and stick. Application is simple:
1) Apply background color if desired and let it dry.
2) Remove the film of the product, cut out the desired pattern roughly and dip it into water for 10-20 seconds.
3) Moisten the fingernail, using tweezers gently slide the sticker to the nail surface face up and press firmly.
4) Use soft towel to absorb excess water and blow dry if necessary.
5) Seal the Nail Tattoo with gel or with clear topcoat.
Step by step instructions are also included on the package. The set includes three sheets of nail tattoos in an assortment of designs, including black cats, pumpkins, spiders, ghosts, and skulls.
Halloween Nail Decals Assortment
These salon quality Halloween themed decals are suitable for natural and artificial nails. Here’s how to apply:
1) Cut the decal to fit the nail. For natural nails, apply a base coat first.
2) Place decal in a bowl of warm water. It will curl up and then straighten out again. Once decal is flat again, it is ready to slide off the paper backing.
3) Place the decal straight onto the nail in desired position.
4) Dab dry with a tissue and finish with a layer of clear acrylic or top coat to seal.
For best results apply decals to white or light colored nails.
