Hello there 🙂
The season of creepy fashion (aka Halloween) will be here in no time. And to be honest, it's never too early to prepare your costume, which we actually already did for you. We've featured some great it-girls-approved costumes, found humble dress up ideas perfect for the office, and even searched the internet for meme-inspired costumes that would make everyone LOL (really!).
However, we are aware that costumes may not be for everyone. But that doesn't mean you can't be festive any other way: cool makeup is an option to add a bit of spookiness to your routine without taking a huge leap into fashion, as is painting your nails with one the following means Halloween nail colors. Think: a blood red, slime green, and classic orange, plus a few more that can look just as scary as a skeleton costume. All of this is a no-obligation way to celebrate October 31st.
Check out seven Halloween-themed polishes we put on our nails when we're just not in the mood to put a costume together.
You can't go wrong with red nail polish. It's classic but also scary, especially when paired with an all black look. Vampire mood, anyone?
Black nail polishes have grunge vibes, which makes them perfect for the scary season – but the best part is that they go well with it everything.
Slime green is still the top priority in the fashion and beauty world, and this is exactly why you should consider wearing the shade on your nails on Halloween. Plus, it's perfect for a Frankenstein-inspired nail design.
I'm sorry to say the obvious, but orange nail polish is about as important for Halloween (and fall) as sweet corn.
Royal purple is elegant, but when paired with a black lace dress or slime green top it becomes a little more scary (in the best possible way, of course).
Blue paint is dark and scary, but not quite as mysterious as black. It goes well with everything too.
When in doubt, metallize it out. The glossy varnish is great for a disco-inspired costume (or perhaps a space-themed costume).
Next up are 10 fall nail trends to blow up this year.
