- Ghost nails
If you prefer black and white colors, I’ll suggest you try ghost nails for Halloween days. Don’t these ghost faces look cute and spooky at one time? To create it perfectly, use special nail art brush. If you don’t have one, you can use a make-up brush or artistic paintbrush as well.

Another great nail art idea for those who love simple black and white manicure for Halloween. Its recreation doesn’t take a lot of time. Paint your nails in black color and add two little spooky eyes on your ring fingernails. For a better look, fix manicure with top coat.

- Bloody fingerprints nails
If you are a fan of Dexter or CSI series, you will like this bloody fingerprints nails a lot. The process of creation is a little bit messy, but you will have fun. At first, paint your nails with a white nail polish and dry them. Then starts “the hard” part, you will be needed to paint one fingerprint with red nail polish and live stamps on the nails. That’s it, the bloody fingerprints nails are ready. A little hint, if you are going to the party, try fluorescent nail polish for fingerprints.
