Black Halloween Nail Designs

70+ Best Black Halloween Nail Designs

Is it too soon to start getting excited about Halloween? We don’t think so. In fact, we wish it could be Halloween all year around. In case you’re having a hard time bringing together a costume, or the extra additions such as nails, makeup, hair, etc., here’s some nail inspiration with these black Halloween nail designs…

Did you know that the word “Halloween” is actually just short for “All Hallow’s Eve”, or in some places just “Hallow’s Evening”. What about the fact that black and orange was adopted as the ‘official’ colours for Halloween because orange is a symbol of endurance and strength, something necessary to get through a typical harvest, and because the colours are typical with the autumn / fall season.

And of course, black is the blackest colour around, a symbol of death and all things dark, just perfect for the horror-ific time of year. Black halloween nails go perfectly with all of the halloween nail colors from dark red, to hot pink and of course lots of orange. So, get your black nail polish ready, book an appointment at your local nail salon and get ready for some spooky nails.

Sexy Halloween Nails

For some, Halloween is the best season for self-expression. Halloween costumes and accessories can help you feel beautiful and attractive. This may even be applicable to your nails. Sexy nails may appear understated and are more about colours or shapes. Long nails have ultra-feminine qualities which are a wonderful choice for attracting your hands. They will extend fingers too, which is very flattering. We are loving the long almond nail shape at the moment, they are elegant and will create a statement. Pair them together with dark halloween colors and a bit of glitter and you have the perfect halloween look.

Short Halloween nails

Short nails appeal because their strength makes them easy to clean. It is not necessary that your nails break or get caught in spider webs or something like long nails do. It has a smaller versatility with shapes and nails because of limited space, but you can still enjoy all of these fang-tastic Halloween themes. I think it’s good to keep things simple by only decorating a few nails. This means the nails don’t overwhelm the plain ones, but rather complement them. Try adding some nail art to one or two feature nails and keeping the other nails in one color.

Halloween Almond Nails

Almond nails are a popular shape due to their versatility and femininity. They look similar to almond nuts. Acrylic nails are most effective because they increase the strength of the nail and is less likely to crack. The shape can be worn long or shorter and would be ideal for various Halloween-inspired nail designs.
