  • Halloween is the best time to get creative with your nails.
  • Rich metallics, conventional orange, and other vampy hues make for the best Halloween nail colors.
  • Stars like Lizzo and Kehlani have rocked manicures perfect for spooky season.

We think it's worth the forewarning that dressing up your nails takes on a completely different meaning once October arrives. With Halloween on the not-too-distant horizon, it's time to shift your Pinterest boards from summery sets to moodier alternatives like the classic french, chrome finishes, and dark and vampy nail-polish hues. While it's conventional to stick with orange when it comes to spooky season, in recent years, Halloween nails have been taken to new heights. Take cues from unofficial nail aficionados like Megan Thee Stallion with her light-up nails or even Kylie Jenner and her black sparkly nails, which are the ultimate Halloween vibe.

To find the most popular — and in some cases, unexpected — Halloween nail colors for the spooky season, we tapped celebrity nail artist Elle Gerstein, who has created looks for Blake Lively and Jessica Chastain, to name just a couple of her A-lister clientele, to weigh in. Check out her picks ahead.
