Autumnal floral prints are pretty and pumpkin motifs are cute, but perhaps you’re looking for fall nail art inspiration of the witchy variety? You’ve come to the right place. We scoured Instagram to find nail designs fit for an enchantress. Read on to get bewitched by six Halloween nail art looks inspired by Ouija boards, tarot cards, witchcraft and all-things occult.

Wickedly Divine

Fans of the critically-acclaimed Broadway show Wicked will appreciate these witch motif nails in matte black and green. The key is finding a green vibrant enough to match Elphaba’s complexion. We like Essie Expressie Quick-Dry Nail Polish in Take Controller.

Crystal Ball Worthy

Embellishments and the curved shape complete these fortune teller-themed nails. You’re sure to have all eyes on you!

Real Creepy

Going for realism? If you want actual witch nails to complete your witchy Halloween ensemble, use these as inspo. Use black eyeshadow for “dirt” and really get the shadow into the crevices of your nails.

Warlock Vibes

Whether you’re a witch or a warlock, these shiny black and blood red claws will do the trick. You need to get the shape super sharp to nail the look. 

Minimalist Witch

The translucent backdrop makes this witchy design pop. Plus, you’ll be able to rock this design long after spooky season without looking like you’re still in costume.

Glam and Witchy

Just because you’re going with a witch vibe this Halloween doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your love of glitter. In fact, incorporate it into a sinister design as shown here with a dark, shimmer polish.
