There is no shame in this exploration. The rest of us having been waiting, and we're here to tell you that themed Halloween nails are creepy, kooky, and honestly way more fun.

Muted amber is cute, but aren't tiny little mummy stitches even better? Matte black is simple and sophisticated, no doubt. But have you ever bedecked your nails in confetti?
