Whether you’re attending a chic costume party, trick-or-treating, or staying at home to watch your favorite horror flick, we hope you have a safe and happy Halloween.
And in case you’re a last minute planner or you just really want to get in the spirit, here’s all the Halloween inspiration you’ll need:

Halloween is—gasp!—not really our favorite holiday. We have a hard enough time getting dressed in the morning let alone planning out an elaborate costume. But the main issue is that we never feel all that sophisticated on October 31. It’s tricky to come up with an idea that isn’t cliche (sorry, Audrey) and is also legitimately chic. This year, however, we’ve actually planned ahead and come up with not just one, not just two, but three festive Halloween options that are truly stylish!
Do you have your outfit picked out yet?
We have fun Halloween manicure ideas, too!
Almost more than any other holiday, Halloween really lends itself to innovative, totally inspired nail art. Even if you’re not normally a nail art fan, if you’re dressing up in a costume, this is the perfect opportunity to go all out and get into the nitty-gritty details like your nails—mummy bandages, meet mummy fingertips. There’s lots of great inspiration out there (just check out our Pinterest Halloween board), but we wanted to give you lacquer ideas for every skill level: easy, medium, and hard. Click through to see our tutorials on the bloody fingerprint mani, the black widow mani, and the mummified mani!

As much as we love nail art, we’re better at admiring designs than coming up with them ourselves. That’s why we’ve enlisted Anna Norman, the smarty pants behind Glitter, She Wrote, to be a regular contributor. Every Monday, she’ll be sharing her latest lacquer inspiration—you won’t be satisfied with plain ol’ polish again.
Halloween is less than two weeks away. Have you planned your manicure for the big night yet? If you have a bottle of red polish, an ordinary plastic straw, and 10 minutes, you can pull off these super simple bloody nails—no nail art experience necessary. They’re the perfect addition to a creepy costume, or a stand-alone way to bring some spirit to the 31st, whether you’re decked out in a costume or not. Here’s how to get the look:
