When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the Moon laughs and whispers, ’tis near Halloween!

According to tradition, the spirits of the dead were able to come back to life to harm people and crops in the physical world. People tried to appease the restless spirits on Halloween, and these practices led to many of today’s Halloween traditions. For example, people used to wear costumes of monsters, ghosts, and devils to scare away the harmful spirits. People still celebrate by wearing scary costumes. However, today they also dress up like popular celebrities, children’s show characters, princesses, superheroes, and much more.

Halloween is just around the corner, and everyone is starting their search for sick decoration ideas. However, the most important part is the mask we are going to present on that night. And the expectations are: to look like a magical piece of art.  Every one of us is searching for an outfit that’s the perfect amount of scary vs sexy, but apart from the costume, we also need our makeup and nails to be on point.

May your nails vibe with the spirit of Halloween. We like to think that October 31st is the perfect excuse for snapping with wild costumes, dazzling makeup, and festive nails! Enjoy our list of ideas!
