Can you believe how fast the year is zooming by? It seems like just five minutes ago we were moaning that the summer temperatures were “too hot”, and yet here we are, staring winter in the face, looking at Halloween 2019 mani ideas to go with that costume we’re totally going to rock …
We need to find a way to slow down time, folks. We here at the CherryCherryBeauty den are getting older by the day!
Age concerns aside, what are you planning on dressing up as this Halloween? Or do you – like us – still have no clue what you’re going to wear? Maybe these mani inspiration pics will give you a boost in the right direction. We can’t wait to see what you’re all going to be wearing, that’s for sure.
1 – Zombie Cute Betty Boo Halloween Nails
These are hella cute, don’t you think? We would never have thought of putting something as cute as Betty Boo on Halloween nails, but the zombie version of her just works so well. We’d also like to draw your attention to those amazing spider and spiderweb detail nails too … There’s some very impressive artistic flair going on here, kids.
2 – Trick or Treat Nails for Halloween
We’re lightening things up with these adorable trick or treat nails for Halloween. You can just give us all of the treats, though. We’re not sure we’re in the right frame of mind for a trick …
(Nor do we want to ruin these amazing nails during the tricking!)
3 – Square-Tipped Black Halloween Nails
Back to dark, we’re opting for black nails here, but this time we’re adding simple blood drops and a sweet spiderweb, combined with rhinestone spider body. We’d be much less fearful of spiders if they had rhinestone bodies too.
4 – Long & Pointed Nails for Halloween 2019
What nail shape or type is your favourite? If you like to keep things long and pointed, these spooky-themed talons might just do the trick. There’s brains, blood drops, and some serious style here … What more could you want?
5 – Holographic & Black Skull Nails for Halloween
We can’t get enough of the holographic trend, although we must admit we’d never thought of incorporating the light-reflective detail in with dark, Halloween nails. Complete with spooky skills, this nail look shows you just how to do it … and my, what a look it is!
6 – Cute Little Boo Halloween 2019 Mani Ideas
How about something sweet, rather than something spooky? How about a cute little boo? We’re loving how adorable these pointed Halloween nails are, and it just goes to show that you don’t have to spooky, blood-spattered, or even dark to get the look.
7 – Cute Black & Orange Pumpkin Nails
Pumpkins and Halloween go together like … well, pumpkins and Halloween. But what goes together with both of those? Black, pointed talons, that’s what. Oh, and a bit of silver sparkle too. These nails definitely caught our eyes … But will they capture you?
8 – Bad Black & Skull Halloween Nails
If it’s not a pumpkin at Halloween, it’ll be a skeleton or a skull, and it’s the latter that this classic black design is rocking. We’re obsessed with that little silver embellishment there … Anyone else rushing to Amazon to try and find something similar??
9 – Do Not Cross Nails
Okay, if you’re bringing Halloween candy, we might just let you cross. No candy, no cross, though. If it’s a bright and bold look you’re hunting for, this one’s got pretty much everything you might need. We’re especially loving those colourful ghouls. It makes a change from the typical white ghosts, right?
10 – Skull Detail & Pointed Nail Inspo
Just when you think you’ve seen everything skull-like you’re ever going to possibly see on a nail, a talented artist goes out there and pulls another fabulous look out of the bag. Not that these skull detail nails deserve to be in a bag, of course. We’ll get a friend to reach in for our phones to ensure our nails don’t get messed up! ?
11 – Halloween Blood Splatter Effect Nails
These blood spatter effect Halloween 2019 mani ideas (the white and red ones, obviously) are so simple to do, but we love the negative effect version that’s been thrown in — black background with a red sparkle-effect blood look. Which way around do you prefer? Or would you opt for something like this look and go for both?
12 – Orange & Skeleton Nails for Halloween
Orange and purple — they go together so well, especially at this spooky time of year, and we love the way they’ve been used in a cute and feminine, yet spooky way in this nail look.
13 – Red Spiderweb Nails
We hope you don’t suffer from arachnophobia! (I’m literally trying not to look at the screen as I write this!) These red and white spiderweb nails, complete with black spiders, are not only relatively easy to achieve with some hand-painting patience but are also perfect for Halloween.
If you like spiders, you could wear these any time of year, we guess? ??♀️
14 – Happy Halloween Skull Ombre Nails
With an ombré looking as tasty as candy corn, these ‘Happy Halloween’ nails have got the elements you’d want in Halloween-themed nails. Candy corn, skull and crossbones, and a spider web? The look is basically complete!
15 – All Things Halloweenie Nails
If you’re anything like we are, then you won’t be able to make your actual costume decision until right at the last minute. And that process makes finding the right nail design a really difficult process. Nails like this make life a little easier — a little bit of everything “Halloweenie” thrown together for a look that is all together spooky and scary.
16 – Spooky Black Matte Halloween Nails for 2019
We love the matte nail trend, so you imagine how happy we were to come across these gorgeous spooky black matte nails, which we’re totally adding to our list of Halloween 2019 mani ideas on Pinterest.
17 – Trick or Treat Halloween Manicure
Trick or treat! It’s the ‘cat nail’ that we love in this look – a great way to bring your pampered pet into the equation. And remember, kids, a black cat is for life; not just for Halloween.
18 – Black n’ Purple Trick or Treat Nails
Black and purple is a great combo of colours for Halloween, and we love the way that they’ve been used in these cute Halloween talons. Decals are your friend for a quick text look, and we’ve found loads of Halloween-inspired decals and transfers on Amazon, Etsy, and similar places. Is it time that you took a closer look for yourself … ?
19 – Vampire Inspired Halloween Nails
How about a different spooky scene on each nail? This kind of thing is made a lot easier when a nail artist does it all for you, of course, but who would really know if you were to go crazy-creative on stick-on nails? No one. And you could simply take them off the next day if you needed to much easier than with acrylic or gel extensions.
20 – Blood n’ Gore Nails
What kind of horror is your type of horror? If you like a bit of blood n’ gore, you might just find that these nails give you all the Halloween inspiration you could need. We think those short, pointed tips are KILLER. How about you?
21 – Matte Grey Stars + Bats Halloween 2019 Mani Ideas
Looking for matte finish Halloween nails? These cute, grey beauties are up for the challenge, stars and moon thrown in to bring in that spooky middle-of-the-night effect. You can buy these in sticker or decal format from a number of places, for pretty cheap, and we can’t wait to see what different designs everyone comes up with. Don’t forget to come back and show us if you get creative so that we can feature you!
