Sadly, Halloween definitely won't look the same this year. Parties will most likely be banished to Zoom and trick or treating has been replaced by a new, spookier game: track and tracing. But fear not, you can still spread a bit of spooky cheer if you're a sucker for this time of year, and while I totally advocate getting dressed up or doing some creepy makeup on the big day, another way you can enjoy it (without too much commitment) is through Halloween nail art looks you can try at home.
This year, more nail salons and brands are making spooky, artsy looks easier than ever. If you can get out to a salon and still want to, your options are literally endless, especially when you consider the talent and skill level of most nail artists out there. However, if you feel safer doing up your nails from home, I’ve selected five looks I think anyone can achieve, and rated them from the hardest to the easiest.
Most will require a small selection of nail polish shades (which will be detailed below), as well as a small nail dotting tool and very fine artistry brush. This set from Amazon is perfect, and has everything for under a fiver.
Outside of that, all you need is some creativity, a spare afternoon, and, in some cases, a hefty dose of patience…
