Spooky Halloween Nail Art

As the nights draw in, and seem to melt into our daylight hours, kids and adults across the US are looking forward to the spookiest night of the year – Halloween!
Traditionally, the time when the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest, contemporary celebrations include parties, trick or treating and pranks to scare the bejesus out of you. Dressing up in scary costumes, or glamorous party outfits are a big part of the fun, and obviously, being nail art fans, you’ll want to make the best of your talons for Halloween.

The two big trending styles this year are cat eye nail polish and Halloween nail stickers. Both are surprisingly easy to do, great fun, and look absolutely awesome! So, I invited the spirits around early this year, and got spooky with the best Halloween nail trends.


1) Gellen Cat Eye Polish Kit – 6 colors + magnet sticks

What Makes it Great
I honestly didn’t think these would look as great as the pictures – but WOW! Super easy to do, and with the included magnetic wand, you can create any patterns from swirls to swishes and stars. The colors are rich and deep, and once you’ve used the wand to make the pattern, and applied a top coat or two, the polish is surprisingly durable. It was nearly three weeks before I noticed an edge lifting slightly.

Where it Could be Improved
The polish does leave a stain, so always use a base coat.

The Final Verdict

Stylish, unusual, and incredibly chic, these magnetic cat eye polishes from Gellen are just perfect for a Halloween bash.

2) Sexy Mix Rainbow Glitter Cat Eyes – 6 colors – magnetic wand

What Makes it Great
With a range of luscious glitter that not only possess an intense sparkle, but have magnetic qualities, this set can be used several ways. If you choose to just use the glitter polish, without the cat eye effect, the galaxy of tiny glints draws you in, but with the addition of the magnetic wand, the glitter swirls are simply stunning. They lasted just over two weeks before I had to remove them.

Where it Could be Improved
It’s important to remember the base coat as the polish can leave a slight stain.

Sexy Mix have created a super versatile set of polishes, perfect for Halloween and beyond! Every mani kit should include these, and they’d make a great gift.

3) TailaiMei 1500 Pcs Halloween Nail Stickers

What Makes it Great
TailaiMei have created a super set of stickers, and all you need to do is choose the designs you like, apply them to your manicured nails and add a protective top coat – simple! There are hundreds to pick from – skulls, cats, pumpkins, witches, moons, and loads more. I used different ones one each nail because I’m useless at deciding, and received so many compliments! How long they last depends on the polish and top coat you use, but they should remain looking good for well over two weeks.
The reusable ziplock bag is a nice touch.

Where it Could be Improved
Some designs are a little fiddly and require tweezers, but that’s no hassle really.

4) Halloween Nail Stickers 25 Sheets

What Makes it Great
Standing out from your average set of decals, this set is stylishly arty, and includes clowns, vampires, zombies, sexy witches and more. Covering your full nail, these work well with an unpatterned background design, lending a very unusual look to your nails. Everyone asked me where I got them from, and kept grabbing my nails to have a closer look! Their longevity depends on the top coat you use, but mine lasted nearly three weeks.

Where it Could be Improved
These can be a little fiddly to apply as they are quite complicated designs. But with a steady hand and a pair of tweezers, it’s much easier.

Well made, intensely shiney and incredibly sweet, perfect for a glam Halloween party or just to creep out your friends. They attach really well with a dab of nail glue, lighting up any party with dazzling effects.
