50 Spooky Halloween Nail Ideas That Aren’t Cheesy 👻

If youโ€™re like us and also find yourself endlessly searching for โ€œHalloween nail ideasโ€ on Pinterest and Instagram, you’ll probably understand our conundrum. What fills our feeds is always unique and fun (it is spooky season, after all), but isn’t exactly something we’re excited to wear (especially for longer than a few days). Having Michael Myers on your nails is super cool, but it isn’t exactly something we’re willing to show off when we’re giving a presentation about Q4 projections over Zoom. 

But your quest for the cutest Halloween nails doesn’t have to end there: we found the coolest, trendiest options that you’ll be dying to try all season long. Think less ’80s slasher and more Casper with jewel-tone shades, fun French tips, spooky art, and even a little ’70s inspo for your costume. Scroll to see them all in their glory. 💀
