Something wicked this way comes…
Just because it’s Halloween, doesn’t mean all sense of class and decency has to go out of the window. Audrey Hepburn once declared ‘I believe in manicures’…you would NEVER find her at an All Hallows party dressed as a giant pumpkin without her nails perfectly matching her outfit!
Black & White
Channel the eternally chic black and white palette with these eerily elegant ideas.
Perfect these looks with OPI’s My Boyfriend Scales Walls and Essie’s Licorice.
If, like us, you’re a leeetle bit, how can we put it…RUBBISH at nail art, these babies are maximum impact for minimum effort. Check out spoonful.com for the how-to info.
‘Ooooh!’ (That’s the reaction you will receive when you flash these talons, courtesy of Polished Love Affair, at your Halloween shindig.) A steady hand is definitely needed, so probably best to begin the process before you’ve had a few glasses of pumpkin punch.
Who would’ve thought Beetlejuice could be such a tasteful fashion icon?
For general catwalk-inspired nail inspiration, we definitely recommend that you check out the gorgeous blog Miss Ladyfinger.
Blood Red & White
For these bloody good nail tips (Groan!) editor in chief of Nail It! magazine Stephanie Lavery used a very pale pink here- but a white, or nude base under OPI’s Big Red Apple would work equally as well.
And finally, our favourite eerie manicure for fright night…drum roll please…
Mummy Dearest by Peace Love Polish
Surprisingly simple, but a guaranteed talking point at any spooky soirée!
So, go forth fellow revellers and enjoy bobbing for apples, trick or treating and creating jack o’lanterns, safe in the knowledge that your ghoulishly gorgeous manicure will be the talk of the ghost-town. (We just had to get that one in!)
