Learn what's trending across POPSUGAR. Earlier today, the girls around the office and I were discussing how much we love Halloween. "I love Halloween parties, but it's not like they just grow on trees," quipped my deskmate. I couldn't agree more — I need some more make-believe in my life. This got me to thinking about how I will celebrate the spookiest holiday of the year, and the answer lies partially in nail polish. For Halloween, it's more than just your typical black nail lacquer. It's all about glitter, shades of green, orange, bold neons, and other distinctive colors. And that's why I've gathered together some nail polish ideas to get you in the spirit of the ghoulish season ahead. So bust out your most evil laugh, and get ready to glow in the dark. Candy Cornucopia of Color Your dentist might not approve of your massive candy corn consumption during the month of October, but he or she would certainly approve of this idea. Give yourself a candy corn mani. Just use Zoya's Purity ($7) at the tips, followed by the sparkling orange Gabrielle ($7) at the middle and the creamy yellow Pippa ($7) at the base.
