Halloween is upon us and what better way to get in the mood than to get your nails on point. We wanted to bring you inspiration from a number of nail artists but our friend Ash McGrath just had too many amazing designs, so this article is dedicated to her work. Make sure you go check her out on Instagram @ashxmcgrath. All her designs are hand painted – such a talented lady.
1. UFO Halloween Nails
Oh gosh this galaxy style set is so adorable. Varied nail designs featuring a UFO, alien face, drip nail effect, and stars. Ash has applied an ombre effect and we’re loving the colors and shades used in this set. Has to be one of my favorites out of her halloween nail set designs.
2. Sexy Devil Halloween Nails
These nails are on fire. Loving the variation of red and nude backgrounds and the flame really pops against the nude block color. These gel nails are medium length and coffin shaped.
3. Spooky Speckled Halloween Nails
Set on a black backdrop, the speckles looks great. Add to that the white skeleton designs that are just oh so cute. You’ve got your pumpkin head, your devilish skeleton, the witch skeleton and the ghost. This spooky halloween set has been painted on medium length coffin shaped nails.
4. Cute Halloween Nail Design
Set on a candy pink background, these black designs really pop. Of course bats and spiders need to make an appearance in any halloween nail design review. That ghost is just too cute.
5. Witchy Halloween Nail Design
Hocus pocus, these witch nails are just magic. Loving the blotchy purple background color and then the one black featured nail. Those long legs, assuming they belong to a witch 🙂 The potion is too cute. This design is all matte which adds to the effect.
6. Marbled Ouija Board Halloween Nails
Yes or no? The artistry here is something to be admired. Featuring aspects of a ouija board, it’s a creative design for halloween. The marbled purple matte background helps the gloss black designs pop.
7. Black and Peach Halloween Nails
This design is just so aesthetically pleasing. The skeleton head is so pretty, not something I thought I’d ever say about a skeleton head. The peach and black colors go so well together. This design is subtly halloween. Ash you are so talented.
8. Zodiac Celestial Halloween Nails
Marbled black matte nails with silver designs give off an outer space vibe. These nails are subtly halloweenish and so not too playful for work, but still keeping with the theme. Loving this design.
9. Bat Vampire Halloween Nails
Just adorable is the first thing that comes to mind. Look at these vampire bats. Just too cute. The white and baby pink go well together and the detail in those bats is just amazing. Another favorite for me.
10. Wednesday Addams Halloween Nails
I adore this design. Gray, black and white, the official Addams Family colors take you back to the show. You’ve got an outline of Wednesday which looks amazing and then a reference to Wednesday Addams against a black gloss nail. The combination goes so well together and the plainer nails really allow the more detailed ones to pop.
