With Halloween finally here and on a Wednesday no less, we’re rounding up our favorite ghost nail art looks for those who can’t rock a full costume to work mid-week (and anyone else who appreciates a fun nail art moment). The looks ahead are easy to recreate, cute enough to rock the first few weeks of November, and a reminder that nail art is the perfect way to celebrate your favorite holiday.


Peep our faves, ahead:


Ghost, But Make It Minimalist

Essie partner and nail art expert Betina Goldstein creates adorable mini ghosts on each finger in the mani below, using a sheer color for the base and black and white polish to really make the ghosts pop.

Spooky Sparkles

Sparkly blue polish is the perfect backdrop for the ghost mani by damselnails ahead, featuring three different ghost designs on the nail. Mix it up with different expressions, or pick just one for a subtle but fun ghost manicure.

Iconic Ghosts

One peek at this mani by buffcsfjen, and you’ll likely see a ghost you know and love. Each ghost has their own look and feel but together it’s a celebration of some of pop culture’s most famous ghouls. Each ghost was hand painted so it will require a little skill to recreate, but the final look is definitely worth it.

Spooky and Vampy

For a truly vampy mani, go for this matte black and chrome red look by Majadoesnails, featuring stiletto nails so sharp you might be asked to open a letter or two. Our favorite part is the mini ghoul accent nails — an easy way to take an otherwise serious mani and make it a little more playful.

Glow-in-the-Dark Ghosts

This mani might seem like standard fare — until you turn off the lights. Erinzi uses glow-in-the-dark polish to turn the ghosts into glowing ghouls — an extra spooky touch.
