Spooky season is officially upon us, and that can only mean one thing – Halloween nail designs! Black cats, pumpkins, dripping blood – you name it, we have a nail design for it. From outright spookiness to more understated Halloween vibes, we’ve picked out twenty Halloween nail designs that are bound to get anyone into the scary spirit.

#1 Snakey, Snakey, Snakey

No one likes a snake, but when they’re on your nails, they look super cool. This set makes us want to sign up to our nearest coven and become a full-time witch.

All the colours of spooky season. Nothing creates that cosy Autumn feeling like warm oranges/browns and this nail design gives an understated nod to Halloween with plenty of pumpkin vibes.
