Scarily Good Nail Design Ideas For Halloween Gel Nails!

It's that time of year again! Halloween is just around the corner, and that means it's time to start thinking about your costume, party plans and most importantly, the endless designs to try out for your Halloween-ready gel nails.

Getting our nails prepped and dressed up for Halloween is just as important to us as our costume choice. And just like our costumes, we want our nails to be creative, unique and festive. But sometimes, it can be hard to come up with ideas that are both creative and easy to achieve.

If you're looking for some inspiration, we've got you covered with some of our spooky and cute ideas for Halloween gel nails that are simple enough for you to try at home.

Why we love boo-tiful Halloween gel nails

 At Mylee, we love any excuse to have fun with nail art and designs, so what better way to celebrate Halloween than by creating some spook-tacular Halloween gel nails? Whether you're planning on dressing up for a party, going trick-or-treating or even keeping cosy at home with a hot chocolate and scary movie marathon, we think your nails should reflect the festive season.

Halloween gel nails are the perfect way to show off your holiday spirit. They're also an amazing conversation starter, so you can bond with other Halloween-lovers whilst showing off your fab nails!

You don't have to create complex designs to achieve impressive results. Sometimes, less is more and a simple design can be just as effective as an intricate one.

Make sure that you're using MyGel gel nail polish for your designs to ensure long-lasting, high-quality results. Our array of nail tools will also help you achieve any design you desire!

There are endless designs for Halloween gel nails to choose from, so we've compiled a list of our favourites to give you some inspiration.


Silver spiderwebs

Products needed for this nail design:

This design is spooky and chic all at once! To recreate this look for your Halloween gel nails, start by painting a coat of MyGel Base Coat and curing under a LED (30-60 seconds) or UV lamp (120 seconds). Once dry, apply a layer of black gel polish and cure again.

Go in with a second coat of your black gel polish to add opacity and cure again. 

To create the silver spiderwebs, dip your nail art brush into a silver gel polish. Start drawing out the web design from the edge of your nail. We think a half web looks best for this design, but you can make it as big or small as you like! Once you're happy with your spiderwebs, finish by curing.

Cute and simple ghouls

Products needed for this nail design:

We know you're going to adore these Halloween gel nails as much as we do. The little ghosts are so cute and they're really easy to create!

To get started, paint your nails with a layer of MyGel Base Coat and cure. Paint a coat of navy blue gel polish and once you’ve cured, you can start on the ghouls. We’ve opted for an orange and purple gel nail polish here to coincide with Halloween colours, but the choice is yours!

Take your dotting tool and dip it into your gel polish colour. Create a curved tear-drop ghost shape on your nail base. Once cured, take your dotting tool and using black gel polish, dot two little eyes on each ghoul. Seal your design with a coat of MyGel Top Coat.

Blood Drips

Products needed for this nail design:

These Halloween gel nails are so fun; everyone will be eyeing them up! Once you have your MyGel Base Coat down and cured, you'll want to apply a layer of red gel polish on some of your nails and nude gel polish on others and cure.

To create the blood drips, take your dotting tool and dip into the red polish to create some dots. Then use the small end of the dotting tool to link up the dots and create a cuff around the base of your nail. Cure to secure! 


Pumpkin Spice

Products needed for this nail design:

If you want to get really creative with your Halloween gel nails, then why not opt for the number one autumnal look... pumpkins! 

To start, apply your MyGel Base Coat and cure. Then for your base colour apply a pale pink gel polish and cure. Add a couple of layers to build up opacity. 

Next, you'll need your nail art brush and an orange gel polish. Paint a rounded shape at the base of your nail, fill it in and cure. Then go in with your black gel polish to add in the details around the shape of your pumpkin, and add in some creases, and a stalk. Seal it all in with a top coat and volia! 

Wrapping up: Get your spook on!

We hope you love our easy but on-trend Halloween gel nails as much as we do! These designs are perfect for beginners or if you're just looking for some simple and fun nails to show off this Halloween season. We can't wait to see what spooky designs you come up with!

Happy Halloween and enjoy getting your spook on!

No, gel nail polish is not difficult to remove! You can easily remove it at home with a gel nail polish remover.
