  • Professional Halloween manicures can be costly — doing them yourself is easier, cheaper, and more fun.
  • Some tools you might need are a small sponge, a toothpick, a dotter, or a pack of fake nails.
  • Your nail art can be as messy or crisp as you'd like.

Traditional Halloween festivities don't need to be a one-night occurrence when you include nails as part of your ensemble. Thanks to the plethora of Halloween-inspired nail-art ideas on Instagram, you can add a touch of spookiness to your look for the entire month leading up to the holiday.

Although we all love over-the-top nails for Halloween, getting your nails done professionally can be time consuming and expensive. Luckily, there are plenty of easy designs you can DIY that don't require any expertise or stacks of acrylic powder. You don't have to be a nail artist to get in on the action. DIY Halloween nail-art designs encourage messy, gory, and outside-of-the-cuticle action, so you don't have to be clean cut with details. In fact, the messier, the better. All you'll need are some nail inspiration, a polish color or two, and a few cheap tools.

We've gathered a list of ideas to help you find the perfect pairing to your Halloween costume and show off your manicurist skills. Grab your nail polish, put on Hocus Pocus, and get creative.
