Halloween acrylic nails – choosing the color and the theme
Halloween has its traditional colors – orange, black, purple, green – and traditional symbols like bats, witches, pumpkin, skulls and ghosts. There are many activities for Halloween – from trick or treating, costume parties, visiting haunted houses, jokes, reading scary stories or watching horror films. One of the latest trends is fashionable nail art which respects the mood of the holiday. Halloween acrylic nails feature numerous patterns – mummies, ghosts, vampires, skulls, spider webs, spiders, bats, black cats, horrific bloody nails, pumpkins, etc. Nails painted to look like zombie claws, 3D Halloween nail art, tiny renderings of horror movie villains – there are so many options to choose from.
How to choose the pattern for your acrylic nails? There are two main styles of Halloween nail art – you can go the spooky, scary way or opt for cute funny designs. You can match your nails with the color theme of your costume or make up. Bright red or black nails will suit a vampire costume and make up for example, while orange color can complement any non scary Halloween costume. Of course, this is entirely a personal choice, but you could choose a nail art pattern that you especially like and build your costume and make up idea based on the particular Halloween acrylic nails that you chose.
