7 Halloween Nail Colors to Try in 2019

The season of spooky fashion (aka Halloween) will be here in the blink of an eye. And to be honest, it’s never too early to start prepping your costume, which we’ve actually already started to do for you. We’ve spotlighted some great It girl–approved costumes, found modest dress-up ideas perfect for the office, and even looked to the internet for some meme-inspired costumes that’ll make everyone LOL (for real!).

We recognize, though, that costumes might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be festive in some other way: Cool makeup is one option for adding a bit of spook to your routine without having to take a major sartorial plunge, as is painting your nails with one of the below Halloween nail colors. Think: a blood red, slime green, and classic orange, plus a few more that can look just as spine-chilling as a skeleton costume. All of these are a low-commitment way to celebrate October 31.

Ahead, see seven Halloween-appropriate polishes we’ll be swiping on our nails when we’re just not in the mood to piece together a costume.
