We love Halloween. Horror movie marathons, pumpkin carving, and crazy parties? Count us in. Honestly, though, the real star of spooky season (and all we’ve been thinking about for the past few weeks) is the perfect Halloween *look* – which of course isn’t complete without the perfect makeup, hair, and nails.
We know what you’re thinking. Whilst we’re obsessed with a good Halloween mani, spooky ghosts and adorable pumpkin-themed nails aren’t for everyone (no matter how cute they look). Fear not, though – if you’re not into the literal interpretation of Halloween nails, this doesn’t mean you (and your nails) can’t get into the festive spirit all the same.
The solution? Grown-up Halloween nails – the perfect glam-yet-festive addition to this year’s costume. And – for those who just aren’t into the whole ‘dressing up’ thing – they also make the perfect ‘just-spooky-enough’ accessory to say that you *technically* did still make an effort. Winner-winner.
Think: dark, chic, gothic colours and shades of blood red in everything from plain gloss to glitter and snakeskin. For an even more subtle take – opt for french tips in moody designs and colours. The best thing about the ‘grown-up’ Halloween mani is that it’s wearable throughout October and beyond – meaning your nails will look as at-home at the party as they do at the office the following week.
So, if you’re ready to get into the spirit – here’s some spooky-chic inspo to get you started. Morticia Adams would be proud.
