Halloween Nail Art Tutorial: Trick or Treat

by xin on October 17, 2011

halloween night

Halloween is creeping around the corner, and it’s time to trick or treat!

Halloween nail art colors

The typical colors are orange, black, and just about any dark colors ;)

Halloween nail art tutorial base color

Prep your nails with base & top coat, plan out what you want to have on each nail, and color the base colors.

I am particularly liking this shade of blue – Swimsuit…Nailed It!

It’s very pigmented and smooth. One layer is really all you need.

On my thumb, I started with a orange oval for pumpkin, and on the index finger is a sketch of ghost.

Can you guess what’s for middle, ring and pinky? ;)

If you couldn’t guess it, for the middle finger is the broken eyeball, cobweb on the ring finger, and a bat on the pinky.

It’s easier to always sketch the basic shape first then add in the details to finalize.

And finally, add in the eyes and mouth for the pumpkin to make it scary! :D

Happy Halloween!
