8 Moody French Manicures That Are Perfect For Spooky Season



Halloween is creeping up, which means it’s time to get in the spooky mood. These eight moody French manicure ideas are perfect if you’d like to keep your holiday spirit more subtle.


Classic & Clean

You can never go wrong with a clean, classic French mani. This month, skip the white and go for a dark purple or black instead.

Touch Of Sparkle

No, you don’t have to tuck away your favorite shimmery polished this October. In fact, a smidge of gold or silver will give your black French mani a chic feel.

Bring The Drama

Might as well go all out with your moody French manicure. Rather than a skinny line, ask your nail tech to draw on a thick coat on the top. It’ll make a statement for sure.

Striking Ombré

Love the ombré hair trend? Consider the effect on your nails. A black ombré French manicure with a gold rhinestone strikes the perfect balance of spooky and cute.

Cool Abstract

Take cues from Kourtney Kardashian’s design here and apply a thick black line on top and then a skinnier one on the bottom of your nails for extra intrigue.

Unique Shape

Switch things up by trying out a unique design with your French manicure, like a cool V-shape. Then, choose a dark polish to give the distinct look a moody vibe.

Fresh Nail Art

If you’re a fan of nail art, here’s an idea: Instead of a design on all five nails, pick two to compliment your French mani. A cute black cat is a seasonal favorite.

Spooky Flames

Ready to bring the heat this October? You’ll do exactly that will a cool flame French manicure.
