Easy Halloween nail art ideas

Even though I'm obsessed with nail polish, nail art is something I'm really not very good at. As the Halloween season is upon us I thought I would try out some super easy Halloween inspired nail art and show you all the results!

This ones very subtle, but still has that pumpkin inspired look. I used Maybelline Color Show Blackout as a base then layered a coat of Louise Gray for Topshop in the glitter Dart, to create a kind of ombre effect. I really love this glitter as it's a very unusual orange colour with a silver shimmer running through it. 

The next one, I used the same Topshop glitter but instead coated it all over Topshop Country Bumpkin, which is a really cute muted orange. 

I then tried a more gory look. As you can probably tell, I don't have the steadiest hand and I definitely need a lot of practice, but if all your nails are done like this it would look super cool and nobody will be judging how neat they are! 

First Model's Own Snow White was used to give a simple white base, and then I used a hair grip (as I don't own any dotting tools) to create the dripping blood effect. I used Maybelline Forever Strong Deep Red, but any red will do the trick!  

You could even experiment with different colours. I used Maybelline Color Show in Pow Green and Collection Hot Looks in Teeny Bikini to create a gungey look. 

Have you created any Halloween inspired nail art this year? If so I would looooove to see it!
