Nail Polish Ideas: 2 Halloween Nail Looks To Try

Share

We love Halloween for countless reasons: fun makeup, outrageous costumes, elaborate parties, endless candy, and, of course, nail-art inspiration. Jin Soon— founder of JINsoon Nail Lacquer—can execute a creative mani idea like few others, so we went to her for 2 easy-to-create ideas to get you in the spooky spirit in just 3 steps.

Bloody Nails

Step 1:

After putting a base coat on all nails, apply 2 coats of opaque white nail polish.

Step 2:

Wipe off excess red nail polish from the brush and apply varying short and long strokes from the top to the bottom of the nail.

Step 3:

Go over strokes in a darker red using the same method but in fewer places.

Ghostly Nails

So easy, it's scary!

Step 1:

After applying a base coat, paint nails with a metallic black polish.

Step 2:

Starting at the tips of each nail, create a ghostly shape with a white lacquer.

Step 3:

With the same metallic black, dot 2 eyes using a striping brush or a toothpick.
