New Banner

As the darkness of the night begins to overtake the daylight hours, spooky season inches closer. While themed costumes and scary makeup are an assured way to get into the spirit of Halloween, there’s one more route you could take to the house of horrors – spooktacular manicures. Here is all the inspiration you need:

1. The Friendly Ghost 

Don’t want to go too overboard with the nail art? Opt for a minimal but impactful design that will compliment your everyday looks.

2. Fangs 

Your teeth may not have vampire fangs but your nails surely can! Stand out of the crowd with some pointed blood-dripping accent nails.

3. Smoke and Ash
