13 Days of Halloween Nail Art Recap

 Press Sample

Before I start the recap, Happy Birthday to longtime reader Tami! 🎂🎉🎈 I still think it is so cool to have a Halloween birthday so yay!!! Yesterday's post showed me that I just do not do as intricate art as I used to do. Either way, with my crazy schedule, I am proud I carved out some time for nail art during my favorite time of year, so I wanted to round them all up!


13 Days of Halloween: Happy Halloween Candy Corn Gradient with Black Cat

Press Sample

Well here we are! 13 Days of Halloween! Today is a manicure I wanted to do ages ago. KBShimmer's fall collection had three colors that when I saw it, I said CANDY CORN. Then I left them on my desk for months waiting for this. Lol. So that is what inspired me for today. So let's check out this fun and final Halloween manicure!

Halloween Nail Art: All My Favorites

Press Sample

Alright so I failed at 13 manicures for Halloween. But at the same time, I longed for what I used to paint on my nails! It does not matter how many times I see these nail art, I impress myself that I actually did them! LOL. I know a ton of people love to use acrylic paints, but I find it more gratifying when I use nail polish; otherwise, why do I have all these colors? So let's go down memory lane and check out some of my favorites. I post a favorites each year and so you can look at last year's posts for more!

Halloween Nail Art: Halloween Jack O Lantern Nail Art

 Press Sample

Day 11 of Halloween nail art! Pinterest is filled with amazing, spooky and autumn Halloween wallpapers. I have found a bunch of amazing artist that I have followed on Instagram through these gorgeous wallpapers. Today’s look was not linked to any artist so if this is yours, let me know and I’ll link you. So this was inspired by a really pretty wallpaper I saw online, and I took some inspiration and made it my own.

Halloween Nail Art: Classic Black and Orange Glitter Gradient

 Press Sample

I feel like every year, I have to do some kind of black and orange gradient. It's just classic!  It also gives me an excuse to use my favorite Halloween glitters all at once. I cannot do a full glitter manicure anymore. The removal makes me cry? But a gradient? Yes, please!

Halloween Nail Art: Candy Corn Characters

Press Sample

I can't believe we are already on Day 8! At this point, I have done 11 Halloween manicures so I am confident I can get to 13. I always wished I could do 31 Days but that is impossible unless I started in August and I am not sure I could keep the momentum of posting that much. So we stick to 13. These were inspired by a cookie designer. When I tried to find who made it, it says Sara Bakes. Yea...you try finding that one. Lol. So I cannot find the direct link but nonetheless, this is what I saw on Pinterest.

Halloween Nail Art: Jack Skellington and Oogie Boogie

 Press Sample

What’s Halloween without a Nightmare Before Christmas manicure? I feel like I do one every single year. As I was looking through my stamping plates, I noticed that I had a really cool image of Jack Skellington and I thought why have I never used this before? So that inspired today’s nail art.

Halloween Nail Art: Caffeinated Ghosty ☕️ 👻

Ok so I have already noticed that ghosts are a huge theme of my Halloween nail art this season. I have them doing all sorts of things. This time, it is what the ghost does before he goes spooking the town. He has coffee!

Halloween Nail Art: Halloween Stamped Spiders

No matter how early I start my Halloween nail art, it’s still not early enough. I actually started at the end of September and one day I will learn I need to start in the beginning or middle of September. I am going to try to do 13 days of Halloween this year. Despite having so much work and no life, it is truly something that I enjoy so let’s see if I can tackle it.

Autumn 🍂 Ombre

Helloooooo October!! YESSSS IT'S HERE. Before I deep dive into Halloween, I want to share this manicure I wore a few weeks ago. I loved it so much and so many people grabbed my hands. In fact, I don't even know if I needed the stamping, so this is "art" anyone can do!
