Last Minute Spooky Halloween Nail Ideas & Tutorial

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

According to the “nail shape” charts, Stiletto nails mimic stiletto heels in the fact that they are nails that have been filed or sculpted to a smooth, thin point. Why am I telling you this? Because they look SO cool. If you don’t have time to get your nails done before Halloween, that is okay too, but if you do, keep one of these awesome looks in mind!

Hello, Glitter! 

These just scream spooky! I love the galaxy look.

Maybe you want to mimic stones and rocks? Here’s a cool idea.

Even though summer is over, you can still dream about it with these watermelon nails! 

I don’t know what else to say about these nails except I LOVE THEM! The colors are so glittery and fun.

These are definitely halloween worthy!

If you’re going to rock nail art, there is no better time of year to do so than October.

The month gives you free range to peruse all the wicked-cool Halloween nail art ideas, and try as many festive manicures as you want. See below for tips from our partner, celebrity nail artist, Skyy Hadley (who works on Faith Evans, Janelle Monae, and Mariska Hargitay).

Skyy recommends doing your nails the day before Halloween at home and giving yourself 45 minute to an hour of time to complete it.

Follow Skyy’s DIY stiletto nail tutorial below:

1. Sanitize hands and nails.
2. Start out with a square nail by clipping your nail straight across.
3. Clip the uppermost portion of the two sides diagonally into a triangle.
4. With a file, focus on curving the sides evenly to get a teardrop shape that softens the triangle.
5. Whatever you do on one side, do on the other side. For example: If you do three files on one side, do three files on the other so that it looks symmetrical.

Have fun and stay safe!
