Halloween Nails 2018

Cat in a pumpkin - Halloween Nail

In recent years it’s become a little tradition of mine to get a Halloween manicure. Having Halloween nails really get me feeling that little bit extra festive! I look forward to it every year and spend hours scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration. There are so many fantastic designs on there it’s hard to choose! Nail art is always a must for me. If I’m going to spend money to get them done I want something fun/pretty/unique and eye-catching. If you’re looking for some Halloween nail inspiration then look no further! These are all really cute and perfect for the season.

Ghost Halloween Nails:

These were the very first Halloween nails I had done back in 2016 and are what started this whole tradition. I loved these nails so much! The ghosts were adorable and the glitter my nail tech used was amazing. She painted all of my nails black to start and then added the glitter which turned them into this deep, beautiful blue. The ghosts and the ‘boo’ accent nail were then hand drawn. While I thought they were already incredible my nail tech decided to go that one extra step further and suggested putting a glow in the dark polish on top. I was sceptical by this at first thinking they wouldn’t actually glow in the dark but ended up being completely blown away by the result!

Cobweb and Pumpkin Halloween Nails:

The following year I knew I wanted the glow in the dark polish again, there was no question about that! Once again I took to Pinterest to help me figure out what I wanted. I decided I definitely wanted some spiders or cobwebs but also wanted to get a pumpkin in there too. The colour choices were definitely tricker on this as the glow in the dark polish will only work on white, so I ended up having a white pumpkin which seemed odd at first but it worked with the rest of the design. Since cobwebs are pretty intricate my nail tech used the stamping technique for these and again the results were fantastic and I was super pleased with them!

Cat in a Pumpkin Halloween Nails

I got these nails done just over a week ago and I am obsessed! As you all know I am a massive cat person and when I saw a design very similar to this on Pinterest I was instantly in love. I was pretty nervous getting these done because after two years of going to the same nail tech I had to change since our working hours meant I could never get an appointment. This new nail tech was absolutely amazing and I was completely entranced watching her hand paint the little cat. I was very impressed that she both had the patience for it and managed to create what I had envisioned so perfectly. These nails are adorable and I decided to add stripes too for extra Halloween effect.

Getting a manicure is such a treat, not only because of the fun nail polish and nail art but the cuticle work, the filing and general tidying up too. I come out of the salon feeling like a new woman with fresh nails haha. Soon I’ll be searching for some Christmas nail inspiration which I am really excited for!

    Hollie, these are absolutely perfect!! I completely agree, if I’m getting a manicure, then nail art is a must! I used to get gel nails and I’d ask for nail art every time haha. But my goodness, that glow-in-the-dark polish is brilliant!! :O And the little cat is the cutest, not to mention the detail is phenomenal. Your nail tech was indeed majorly skilled!
