super simple halloween nail ideas

Halloween is almost here. Are you looking for a fun way to celebrate the season? All you need is a little nail polish to make it happen. Though I absolutely adore all of the elaborate seasonal nail designs on Pinterest and Instagram....they aren't exactly practical or accessible for the average beauty lover. That is why this list is all about super simple Halloween nail designs. They are suitable for all skill levels and will certainly make this season feel extra special. 

Black and Orange Nail Polish. The easiest way to snag Halloween inspired nails is to reach for black and orange nail polish colours. Mix and match these shades however you like! For instance, you can paint your nails black (which will look spooky and go with any Halloween costume) or paint your nails orange (for a simple seasonal creation). Alternatively, you can paint your nails black and then have one orange statement nail. Or alternate the colours. If you want something fun and themed, but don't want to spend a ton of time and energy fussing over your nails, have fun with these two Halloween colours. 

Candy Corn Striped Nails. Candy corn is definitely one of my favourite things about this particular holiday. Though not everyone loves this seasonal treat (only an estimated 49% of people like this well-known Halloween candy)...there is no denying the fact that candy corn nails will look wonderful. Plus, it is fairly easy to create. Paint three horizontal lines on each nail until the entire nail is painted. Start with a yellow line on the bottom, an orange line in the middle, and a white line on the top. For cleaner lines, use a piece of clear tape for a sharp line, and then remove before applying the next colour.

Red Blood Drips. Another super simple Halloween nail idea is to create blood drips. Start by painting your nails white. Once that has dried completely, reach for a red nail polish. This can be either a bright red for a more cartoon effect or a deeper red for something more realistic. Paint the tip of the nail and then dip a toothpick into the polish. Drop a healthy amount on top of the red portion you have already painted, and let it run down the nail, creating a drip effect. Once this has dried completely, go over the polish with a clear top coat to seal and protect your Halloween nails.

Simple Halloween Add Ons. There are some other nail options to consider as well. Just add on some fun seasonal extras. One option is to add on some orange glitter nail polish. This can really kick your nail look up a notch - and is also simple to apply. Glitter gives you the most impact for the least amount of effort. Another idea is to add on Halloween nail stickers or nail decals (you can normally find these at the dollar store, drugstore, or in any seasonal department). Simply stick the decal to your nails as desired. Then you can add a clear top coat to ensure that the stickers stay exactly where you want them. 

Let your nails do all the talking this Halloween. There are so many ways to have fun and embrace the season...without needing to visit the nail salon. Take a look at what you have in your current nail polish collection and see what you can create. These super simple Halloween nail ideas are only the beginning! Let your creativity soar this holiday. 

Will you try any of these Halloween nail ideas? Are you looking forward to the holiday?
