Trick or Treat: The Best Short Nail Halloween Designs

Halloween is just around the corner, and if you're looking for some spooktacular inspiration for your short nails, than look no further! From creepy pumpkin faces to skull motifs, we've rounded up the best nail designs that will have you looking bewitching for the season.

1. Spooky Tips: Add a touch of spooky to your tips with a black base and white tips. Use a toothpick or thin brush to create spider webs, skulls, or little ghosts on each nail.

2. Halloween Candy: Nothing screams Halloween more than candy corn, so why not recreate this favorite treat on your nails? Use a white base and paint each section with yellow, orange, and white stripes to create a 3D effect.

3. Ghoulish Glitter: Even if you have short nails, you can still add some glittery goodness to them. Opt for a black or dark purple base and add a glitter top coat for some extra sparkle.

4. Ghostly Hues: For a decidedly subtle approach to Halloween, try painting your nails in some ghostly hues. Think shades of gray, pale white and soft muted blues.

5. Bloody Good: Create a spooky blood drip effect with red polish and a toothpick. Start at the base of the nail and drag the polish down to the tip creating a dramatic finish.

6. Pumpkin Spice: Nothing says Halloween like a pumpkin, and you don't need long nails to pull off this classic design. Use a simple black base, and add orange pumpkin faces on each nail.

7. Wicked Witch: Add a touch of magic to your nails with a witch's hat, broom and purple nail polish. Use a black base and white dots to create the hat and fun accent nail designs.

There you have it – our favorite short nail Halloween designs. With these ideas, you'll be the envy of all your friends this season. Happy haunting!
