It's nearly that time of the year again, you guys! Yup, you guessed it: Halloween. Aside from searching the internet for sinfully sick decorations (we like to deck out our house 'cause we're extra like that), and an outfit that's the perfect amount of scary vs sexy, we also—most importantly—need our makeup and nails to look the part.

Makeup is a whole different ballgame—one which requires time, patience, and relative skill (head here for all the best Halloween makeup inspo). But, if you're going to put a ton of effort into your face, you've kinda got to give the same amount of attention to your nails, too.

Behold: 23 Halloween nail art ideas that are anything but boring. Whether you want to look extra fancy, or play it relatively safe, there's something for everyone here, so get crafting.

  1. Dark blood reverse French tips

    Thick, maroon blood is offset by gold foil on the ring finger on these cool, coffin nails.

  2. Minimal ghosts

    If extravagant nails aren't really your thing, ask for something simple, but cute like these little ghosts.

  3. Dip dye with cobweb detail

    These high-gloss, dip dyed, orange nails are finished off with webbing detail and we're very into it.

  5. Mystic witch

    With a steady hand and some nail art pens, we bet you're set to recreate these at home.

  6. Delicate spiders

    Another understated nail art design from the queen of subtlety Betina Goldstein, these tiny spiders don't need to be saved for Halloween.

  7. Hello Kitty Halloween style

    Hello Kitty might be sweet, but these razor sharp nails are anything but basic. Brave them at your own peril.

  8. Vampire teeth

    Ask for long, pointy nails on your first and fourth finger to recreate fangs. The red tips make them all the more realistic.

  9. Mutant mani

    Get your manicurist to try these gory nails, if they dare. Very cool, but incredibly complex, you'll have to visit a salon that really knows their stuff.

  10. Eyeball detail

    Yup, you guessed it: Betina is back with this dreamy eyeball design. Super simple, but still eye-catching.

  11. Python printed

    The texture of these touchy feely claws makes them one of our fave Halloween manicures. Ask for nail wraps to get a similar finish.

  12. Stitched skin

    Simple, yet super effective, this is another design we have no doubt you could DIY.

  13. IT Nails

    You don't have to have seen the film to get spooked by the terrifying clown face on these.

  14. Red Rum blood

    Taking inspo from cult horror film The Shining, these super long nude nails are all trick AND treat.

  15. Red and black with spiders and cobwebs

    If you can't face your nails being long and sharp AF (it's challenging), try a square shape like these. Alternating black with bright red gives this manicure an edge. Top it off with spiders and webs.

  16. Neon and purple ghouls

    Neon nails are very much on trend atm, and we're vibing this green and purple combo. The matte, glittery pinky finger has got to be our all-time fave. We think we might try that on all our nails.

  17. Skeleton hands

    We love the attention to detail with these. While we would like to think we could do them ourself, we highly doubt it. Your best bet is to ask a skilled nail technician.

  18. Ghosts and dripping blood

    Choose a nude base not to dissimilar from your skin tone to make these designs really stand out.

  19. Matte black and dripping blood

    The matte black base color makes this red blood lewk just that little bit more noticeable. We're feeling it.

  20. Get vampy

    Red + black = the ultimate vampire nail art look.

  21. Cobwebs = cool

    Yup, spider nails are a thing this halloween. Team them with a stiletto nail shape for an even spookier finish.

    Check it out here.
  22. Pumpkin spice

    This copper glitter will give black nails a pumpkin spice vibe. Go for an ombre finish to give the appearance of longer nails.
