Halloween Nail Art: Pillsbury Halloween Cookie Nail Art

 Press Sample

Every year, I get nervous around Halloween. What if I have no original ideas? Will it be okay to redo an old Halloween manicure I love? Then somehow I figure it out, for the most part. Well, today, I am just obsessed with this look! I cannot believe how good they came out, so let's take a look.

Frankly, I cannot believe it took me 12 years of this blog before I did the iconic Pillsbury cookies! Every year, these cookies are the easiest way to do some festive Halloween baking. I actually do not remember the last time I bought them, but I did pull up pictures and compare my nails to the cookie design and I think I was spot on. Even the colors are perfect!

I originally was going to do the cookie color as my base but my darling said that would not look cool. So he suggested something opposite the actually cookie print color. PERFECT. And then sparkles to offset the cremes. YES!

  • Orange base: Stella Chroma The Ides of Autumn 
  • Purple base: Stella Chroma Ghost
  • Cookie base: Dare to Wear French Vanilla 
  • Orange: Jessica Cosmetics Sahara Sun
  • Purple: Zoya Skipper
  • Green: Barry M Spring Green


This looked awesome in all lighting so here it is inside in normal lighting. I cannot tell you how many people grabbed my nails and went, omg, are those the famous cookies!? Why yes, yes they are! They could not believe I handpainted them. Plus, I love how the sparkles offset the creme colors of the cookie.

Seriously, I love these so much, I want to put them back on for Halloween! Have you eaten these cookies before?


  1. Those are insane. They are absolutely perfect. I sent some pics to your gmail and now thinking I need hours and hours of practice . I've never bought those cookies ( cause baking cookies is something I am good at) but know people that have and they are really adorable. I can't imagine how steady your hand would need to be to do that. How long did it take?? Thanks for sharing 💜💜💜

    1. I just responded to your emails and appreciate them so much! I don't think I could bake cookies like this! WOW. It was less than an hour for all ten nails. At first, I only planned to do my left hand, but then they were fairly easy! The ghosts were harder than the pumpkins but it was just about making the outline. I feel like I spent more time finding then perfect ghost purple than I did on the nails HAHA
