Mmmkay, I’m gonna be honest with you: When I think of Halloween nails—or really any holiday-themed manicure in general (ahem, lookin’ at you, Thanksgiving nails)—I’m automatically…hesitant. Call it repressed ~feels~ from my middle-school days when my mom would deck out my nails (and hair, and socks, and backpack, and soul) with Halloween everything, but I’m just not about that life as an adult. Still, I freakin’ love Halloween (and Halloween parties), so when it comes to lookin’ festive, I now turn toward Halloween makeup and nail looks that are cute, minimal, easy, and just a little bit sPoOkY.
But I’ll be the first to say that non-tacky inspo isn’t easy to find, which is why I did myself (and also you) a solid by rounding up 60 cute Halloween nail ideas that are 100 percent fun and 0 percent cheese. Keep scrolling to get in the holiday spirit a bit early, and get ready to screenshot your favs—you’re going to need them on October 31.
