The Chalkboard Nails Halloween Nail Art Rewind
I've done my fair share of Halloween manicures over the years, for sure. It's fun to get into the spirit of the season with spooky nail art, and there are just so many ways to interpret the theme. Take a trip with me through the Chalkboard Nails Halloween nail art graveyard to visit with the ghosts of my favorite manicures past.
Delicate Glistening Spiderwebs
Make your spiderwebs pop against a midnight black-to-navy gradient! A bit of glitter on the white web adds a touch of glam while still keeping the look clean.
Black Widow Nail Art Tutorial
Textured polish combines with a bright red creme for this arachnid nail art look. No freehanding required; all you need is striping tape! Stop by the full post for the how-to.
I'm Watching You...
I love me some eyeball nail art! This is my third eyeball look and by far the most Halloween-appropriate, but if you enjoy ocular patterns, be sure to also check out my 1984 manicure and my original Halloween eyeball pattern nails.
Spooky Splatter Tutorial
This classic orange and black combo is a bit messy to create, but tons of fun and seasonally appropriate (without being TOO on-the-nose). I grabbed an orange jelly for my base and splattered black over the top, but any pairing of spooky colors would look awesome. Think purple, green, orange, and black.
This abstracted, graffiti-esque design is zombie approved for maximum flavor. TIP: To achieve better results with your nail art pen, try putting down a matte topcoat first!
Midnight Smoke Nail Art Tutorial
This eerie manicure first made its debut during the 31 Day Challenge 2013, when I created the effect for black and white day. Recently, I created a tutorial for the look, and I think you'll be surprised by how easy it is to pull off. Perfect for the gal who wants to celebrate the season, but keep things classy.
Chilled to the Bone
This is one of my oldest Halloween nail art posts (from way back in 2011!), but I think it holds up well! These mix and match bones are creepy-cute over a matte purple base.
Which one is your favorite? How do you like to celebrate the spookiest season on your nails?
