Cute Meets Spooky: Easy Halloween Manicure

Halloween–only the best holiday of the year–is quickly encroaching. I’m sure you’ve already considered your Halloween outfit, but what about Halloween-inspired fingernails? Sure, a solid orange or black is always apropros, but what if I told you could easily take your holiday-themed nails one step further? Well, with the help of me and The Budget Fashionista, you can.

Today we’re creating hanging spiders and spooky eyes in a dark room. You’ll need just three nail polish colors, a dotting tool (or alternative) and a small brush (or alternative). Personally, I’m absolutely tickled by the end result of these Halloween nails. Not only are they super-easy to pull off, they’re the perfect blend of cute and spooky.

Step 1: Prep and Paint Your Nails

 Cute Meets Spooky: Easy Halloween Manicure

Every good manicure needs a good foundation. Start by filing your nails so they’re all the same length, then apply a cuticle oil. You can use olive oil. Wash it off and then paint a base coat. Next, paint all your nails except for your ring fingers with orange nail polish. I used Zoya’s Arizona. Paint your ring fingers black. I used Rimmel London’s Black Satin.
