This design is super simple and fun, all it requires is a dotting tool! Start with a black base, then, using your dotting tool, paint two white dots in random areas. Use a dotting tool to paint black dots in the middle or on the very edges of the white dots for the pupils.

For this look, I painted two coats of the lighter orange color on my nails as a base. Then I used a thin brush to paint lines of the darker color. Using a wider brush, I painted leaves at the tops of my nails.

For a more Halloween-y look, add a little extra flair by drawing a jack-o-lantern face on one of your nails in black.

Konad – Dark Green

Sinful Colors – Big Daddy

For this look I stuck with a spooky ghost theme. I used a stamping disc (you can get one here) for both the ghost and the haunted house. You can use a thin brush to paint the word BOO! on one of your nails and a dotting tool to add a little extra detail to the other nails.

Colors I used:

Wet n Wild’ Wild Shine – Eggplant Frost

Sinful Colors – Snow Me White

Stamp Disc – BM-223

This look is also pretty simple. The spider webs were painted with a thin brush, as well as the spider legs and the string. For the spider body, head, and little eyes, I used various-sized dotting tools. You can put your own spin on it by changing the base colors or the colors of the spiders and webs.

Colors I used:

Sinful Colors – Snow Me White

Sinful Colors – Dream On

Sinful Colors – Black on Black

Inspired by a delicious holiday treat, this candy corn ombre design is super cute and super simple. Use a wedge sponge to apply the color to your nails and finish off with a topcoat to smooth everything out!

For a more subtle Halloween look, use a black base with a matte topcoat and embellish a couple nails with some Halloween-themed stamps. Still in the spirit, but a little less forward.

Sinful Colors – Ice Dream

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro – Marine Blue

Sinful Colors – Black on Black

O.P.I Matte Top Coat
