Whether cobwebs, cat eyes, or blazing French nail flames: These black Halloween main chests ensure the necessary horror atmosphere at all parties.
Still no idea for your next Halloween manicure and scary Halloween fingernails?
Providing your nails with creative nail art seems like a big effort? Not if you stick with one nail polish color: nothing stands in the way of spooky fingernails for this year's Halloween parties. It doesn't matter whether you're doing a bloodthirsty Netflix horror movie marathon, rummaging through old costume boxes with your roommates, or finally throwing a Halloween party again: These black DIY designs will help you rock the spooky season - from creepy spider webs to mysterious cat eyes or dangerously blazing French nail flames, your possibilities are endless.
Black nail polish doesn't automatically mean you have to sacrifice versatility in design: go all-in with your manicure and paint creepy details on every single nail. If you don't have a steady hand when applying, you should get support from a professional. Bats, cobwebs, black cats, or crescents are particularly scary. For an extravagant nail design, you can draw extremely thin whiskers with a fine brush and make eyes appear deceptively lively. If the motifs on each finger are too conspicuous, leave it with statement accents on the ring, middle, or index finger.
Those who prefer a more subtle Halloween theme can experiment with matte and gloss black. You will be surprised how diverse the dark non-color comes from: Start by carefully shaping the nails with a file. Then you first apply a nourishing base coat that nourishes your nail bed, and later on a matt black varnish. As soon as the paint is completely dry, use the glossy counterpart and a fine detail brush to add small accents, circles, or lines, which can vary according to your mood. Complete your design with a clear topcoat.
The longer and more pointed, the more authentic the witch manicure. Sharp stiletto or more natural almond shapes, which add a terrifying Halloween appeal, are best. To achieve this, you can adjust short nails with artificial extensions and shape them with a special nail file as desired. Before you start painting, you should also think about the necessary nail care here so that your "claws" do not break or tear painfully. In terms of design, you can let your imagination run wild: Either leave it with a glossy black and focus on length, or you apply small color details with a thin brush.

Another idea is Halloween-themed French nails or "Half Dipped Nails". To do this, first, apply a clear base coat so that your natural nail color comes into its own. When the base coat is completely dry, carefully run the black polish over your top nail tips as you would with ordinary French nails - or choose blazing flames as a motif instead. By the way, precise application is possible if you mask the lower half of the nail with scotch tape. Optionally, you can paint abstract lines or graphic shapes. For a festive nail look, minimalist crescent moons are suitable, which also look appropriate after the holiday. In addition, glued-on stars or crosses provide that certain something.
