Just because you're not a fan of dressing up doesn't mean you can't show off your Halloween spirit. We've rounded up the best cute, spooky, freaky, and chic nail art designs to try this Halloween. Bonus: You can—and should—wear them all month long. (After all, it's the only time of the year you can get away with blood-spattered nails, so make the most of it.)
Keep reading to see the spooky nail art you need to copy this month.
These claw-inspired nails look vampy when done in red and black, but look equally striking with a nude backdrop (and they’d be a great addition to your cat costume). To get precise lines, all you need is a little striping tape.
Seafoam green polish is a surprisingly perfect background for artistic blood droplets.
Graphic spider webs are the perfect accompaniment to a creepy-crawly ring. Alternate the placement of the spider web to keep it from looking overdone.
This mani has all the makings of a spooky Halloween: a haunted house, black cat, full moon, and ghastly tree.
An opaque nude polish like OPI Nail Lacquer ($9) in Samoan Sand makes the bat design of this manicure look super chic.
This creative mummy mani gets its texture from strips of tissue layered over white nail polish.
If you're looking for something a little more frightening (and easier to create) than a cartoon Frankenstein monster, try this chilling blood-splatter design.
