With Halloween around the corner, we’re rounding up our favorite ghost nail art looks for the spooky season. These are great festive options, especially for those who can’t rock a full costume to work (Halloween is on a Monday, after all). 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.

Ghost, But Make It Minimalist

Manicurist @paintbyjaz creates these adorable mini ghosts on each finger in the mani below, using white and black polish with a top coat for some extra shine. These are cute and creepy.

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.

Freaky French Tips

Go all-out with orange and black French tips, and add some cute little ghosts on your nail beds. This easy design is fun and creative – just don’t forget to top it off with Essie Gel Couture Matte Top Coat for a truly chic finish.

Grids and Ghosts

Take your everyday, minimalist grid nail design, and add some ghosts to make it perfect for Halloween. Get into the spirit (get it?) with alternating black glitter accent nails.

Half Haunted

With orange, black and ghosts, it’s hard to have nails more Halloween-y than these. Cute and fun, these will last in spirit even into the first weeks of November.

Glitter Ghosts

Keep it spooky, and keep it shiny. Add some white ghosts around your favorite iridescent glitter for the most glam ghost look this Halloween.

Glossy Ghosts

Go with ghosts — and add some glossy with black polish. With some webs and ghosts, this is the ultimate spooky look for your nails.

Purple Phantoms

Add some cuteness to your ghostly Halloween nail art with the color purple. Whether you do a full nail with designs or a cute tip, Essie Play Date is the perfect shade to recreate the look.
