In the land of Disney princesses and fairy tales, the princesses usually get all the love and attention. But everyone knows it can be way more fun to play on the dark side. Here’s the thing: none of us is begging our nail artist to cover our fingers in pumpkin-coloured nail polish. Rather, we’re looking through Instagram for nail art that’s as fashionable as it is seasonal. This Halloween, we’re paying homage to the villains of Disney!
With looks inspired by Maleficent, Queen of Hearts, Ursula, and the other wicked characters we love to hate, we’re turning to these super bedazzled creations.
Don’t worry, if you’re still in the mood for something less in-your-face, we’ve got some sparkling yet subtle inspiration for that, too. Keep scrolling for the 2018 Halloween nail art we’re loving.

Asking for pumpkins or spooky nail art in October is kind of like asking for a napkin after your meal — something totally predictable. But with the rise of social media and the relationship linking stylish manicures and the number of likes you get on Instagram, trendy nail art has become more subtle and chic.
And with the spookiest of holidays coming up shortly, we’re adapting our manicures accordingly. From blood-dipped art to spiky encrusted jewels, these are the 2018 Halloween nails you’ll actually feel like showing it off every chance you get.
