We found many cute and easy Halloween nail ideas on our Pinterest search for the perfect way to show our Halloween spirit. There are many ways to celebrate Halloween, and what better and easier way to show your Halloween spirit than by painting your fingernails?
How we did our Cute and Easy Halloween Nail Ideas:
Let me start off saying that Miranda and I are far from being beauticians or nail artists. If we can do cute Halloween nails, then so can you!
Between the two of us we have 4 little girls that were more than happy to get there fingernails painted in honor of Halloween. What little girl wouldn’t be? We simply did a search on Pinterest for Halloween inspired nails and let each girl pick what spooky or creepy fingernail idea they wanted. At first they all wanted Candy Corns…I mean come on, it’s candy on your fingernails! After showing them a few different ideas we came up with jack-o-lantern fingernails, spider fingernails, spiderweb nails, Frankenstein nails, and of course CANDY CORNS!!!!!! We simply looked at the pictures and gave it our best shot!
I have seen fingernail blogs that go into great detail about what color and brand of nail polish they used, but we just used what ever we had handy. Well almost, it helps my Mother is a nail polish hoarder (I am not kidding, she has a giant Rubbermaid tub full of it) and she let us use her nail stuff!
On all of our Halloween nail ideas we used a solid color base coat and then just decorated them with other nail polishes on top after the base coat dried. Now we are calling ourselves nail artists…as you can see from our picture above, we did an AWESOME job!!!!! Well at least I think we did, we are first timers you know. I do have one word of advice, be sure you put a clear coat on top or your cute and easy Halloween nail ideas. The clear coat will make your designs last for much longer than they would have without it.
