Halloween Nail Inspiration

It is almost Hallow's Eve, and I still have a remarkable amount of preparing I have to do before little dressed up goblins, or ghouls come knock on my door and trick or treat. I was bummed out before, I would see neat Halloween nails on Pinterest, or Instagram and I would feel sad because I can't wear nail polish to work... Why does this matter? I thought that I was working on Halloween, but it turns out that I am not working on Halloween, and I can indeed paint my nails. I thought that I would compile a few Halloween nail art ideas to share with you. I am obviously not a professional nail artist, and I did my designs rather quickly, so they don't look perfect
BOO! Ghastly Ghosts nails. I used Essie Marshmallow to give the ghosts a sheer, airy look, and I did the face with NYC Long Wearing Black Lace Creme. Some of the (unintentional) expressions on the ghosts' faces are pretty cute. I'm pretty proud of my little ghost nails. 
These Jack-O-Lantern nails aren't my best work. I free handed the pumpkins, and I tried to make the faces, but again, I'm not a professional nail artist. I painted the pumpkins with Sinful Colors Courtney Orange, and the stems and faces with NYC Black Lace Creme. The stems look more like mohawks than stems, and my pumpkins look a little deranged. But they are kind of cute :) 
This next design is one that I am very proud of. I am going to do this design for my nails tomorrow, they will totally go with my spooky, elaborate makeup that I am doing. If you glance at them, don't they look like claws? I love the illusion this design gives off. I did the claws solely with the NYC Black Lace Creme polish. I am going to perfect this design so it will look perfect for tomorrow. I am so excited to celebrate Halloween! It will be fun. :)
What are your plans for Halloween? I want to know! Do you have any more Halloween nail ideas? I would love to read them. 

I hope everybody has a safe Halloween, whether you celebrate it or not. Stay tuned for my upcoming Halloween post!
