“I am being asked for hand-painted Halloween scenes inspired by iconic movies like Scream, Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

“You can’t go wrong with classically inspired Halloween nails, chrome cobwebs in black or nude with a high shine chrome. I am also seeing Beetlejuice-coloured nails, 3D blood or neon dripped, graveyard scenes with shadow effects, witchy and gothic vibes, and bats and tombstones.

“If scary isn’t your thing, you can go for something simple like spiders, pink and purple ghosts or eyeball art, for something simple, but eye-catching.

“My big 2022 Halloween prediction is that we’re going to start to see Stranger Things inspired nails!”
