Keeping nails polished is all the rage this fall, so why not deck out those talons for the Halloween? We’re not talking orange pumpkin decals but rather, chic shades of polish that fit the holiday and still look good. Any one of these three lacquers would look just right as the finishing touch to a good-humored slutified outfit and a wacky wig.
1. Sephora by OPI’s Dark Room nail color is a doom-and-gloom filled shade of dirty navy blue. It’s weird and beautiful at the same time. We’d recommend it if you’re wearing anything Twilight-inspired or plan to go down the traditional witch route.
2. When in doubt, go with basic black. I love MAC’s nail lacquer in Nocturnelle (and the bottle’s kind of sexy looking, too). This one’s good for gothic looks, adding a little edge to pretty much any sort of get-up, or ignoring the costume component all together.
3. If you must indulge the orange, keep it more pretty than pumpkin. Dior’s Sweet Orange both fits the theme on October 31st and looks classy all year round. It’ll also add a nice, extra warm-color touch in case you’re doing something Lady Gaga-related.
4. For those of you who just can’t resist a holiday decal, Dashing Diva’s ditched the jack-o-lantern for the edgier skull and crossbones. These thin press-on nails are easy to apply and make quite the Halloween statement.
