Quite honestly, I’m not one to go all out for Halloween. I don’t decorate my apartment with pumpkins and gourds as soon as October rolls around and when it comes to my beauty routine, I definitely don’t attempt any crazy makeup transformations or hairstyles for the holiday. When I do get into the Halloween spirit, I like to keep it as minimal as possible.


If you can relate, a black acrylic manicure is the perfect way to partake in the spooky szn without too much of a commitment. Here, I rounded up six black acrylic nail ideas that you’ll want to keep on long after Halloween is over.

Classic Coffin 

Is there any nail shape more appropriate for Halloween than coffin-shaped nails? Pair the shape with a black manicure for a classic look that’s also very on theme.

Black and Bedazzled

 A black acrylic manicure doesn’t have to be boring. Here, @tjnailsnc incorporated rhinestones and a black ombré design and the results are stunning.

Lucite Nails

Remember the lucite nail trend? Well, the translucent finish goes so well with a black acrylic manicure. Feel free to add some extra designs, like polka dots, for a fun twist. 

Simple and Spooky 

For a subtle yet spooky mani, you can’t go wrong with this take created by @glammednailsxo. I love the matte black nails with the addition of glossy spider web designs. If you want to create the look, try Essie in Licorice and top it off with the Essie Matte About You top coat.

Just the Tips

I love colorful French manicures, but there’s something about a black French design that’s so edgy and chic. Here, @buffcsjen filled the empty space with hand-painted designs. The finished results are seriously cool and perfect for this time of year. 

Dark Yet Classic

You can also keep your French manicure simple. If you want to play with a different nail shape, stiletto or coffin nails are perfect for this.
