Halloween Nail Art Tutorials

Difficulty - Beginner/Intermediate

Halloween nail art is so fun because the holiday has so many recognizable themes. A Jack-O-Latern, spiderweb, mummies, fangs, Frankenstein....the possibilities are endless! I have three cute tutorials up for now, but I'll be adding more all week leading up to Halloween.

In these tutorials I used Sally Hansen Extreme Wear in White On, Santa Fe in Vikini-Green, black and white nail art pens from Ebay and Seche Vite topcoat.

Jason Mask Nails Tutorial

Tips & Tricks

  • This mask is so famous, you don't need a lot of detail to get the idea across. If you do want to add more, here's a photo of the mask so you can make it totally accurate.
  • If you don't have a dotting tool...improvise! I used a large, round stud earring as my dotting tool.
  • Be aware of the pressure you use when dotting, pressing firmly will make a larger dot than pressing lightly. You want the eye dots to be the same size!


Fang Nails Tutorial

Tips & Tricks

  • I find it easier to start with a white base than to try to paint white over black, but do whatever feels comfortable for you.
  • Use a thin striping brush to do the red lines.
  • Make your teeth outline much larger than you want the teeth to be. You can always go over it with more black to get them to the right size and point.

Fang Nails Tutorial

Tips & Tricks

  • Don't worry about making it perfectly symmetrical!
  • I used a pen to do the lines, but a striping brush will work just as well.
  • A little polish goes a long way. If you work with too much polish on the brush, you run the risk of globs.
  • An optional final touch is adding a cute little spider on the web!
