Here’s some great 2021 Color Street Halloween Inspiration to start with!
The photo below is one of my most favorite unique designs! Using pieces of Glow Getter to make glow in the dark bones on a glittery black background. Don’t have any Glow Getter? Use Swiss and Tell for that pristine white bone color. Don’t forget to cover everything with a good top coat or Clear As Day to keep the smaller pieces from lifting up.
Love ghosts, but don’t love the busy design of Fab-boo-lous? Simply cut out the ghost pieces and use them like nail decals! I love this design because it’s simple and still glow in the dark! Not to mention this 2021 Color Street Halloween inspiration adds some glitter where there was none previously.
This nailfie uniquely utilizes the pumpkins and spiders from two different Color Street sets to get a complete Halloween design. My favorite nail is the one with Giza Sands as a base with cut out pumpkins from Jack of All Trades. You can find similar Halloween nail art decals like the one used on Amazon.
I love this pumpkin 2021 Color Street Halloween inspiration because it’s not just all pumpkins. It uses some more glitter as well as a solid orange.
If IT is one of your favorite Halloween movies you should definitely use this IT nailfie for your 2021 Color Street Halloween inspiration! The red balloon was made with Baton Rougey using a balloon shaped hole punch. Then a black sharpie was used for the outline and string. A Pennywise waterslide nail art decal was used for his face.
This design is based on the movie The Mummy! It includes spiders, scarabs, and even a mummy too! The nice thing about Color Street nail polish strips is that they work perfectly to look like mummy wrapping/bandages as you can see the layers beneath. The bandages were made with the solid strips from Show and Shell.
Here is a great example of using a Cricut to create nail decals! Don’t ask me how because I don’t have a cricut, but my sister does so I’m hoping I can experiment the night time I see her! Michael Myers’ face and knife were made out of adhesive vinyl with the Cricut.
The blood splatter is made with the color Hey Sailor by China Glaze. Yes, it is regular nail polish, but I never promote Color Street by itself anymore. There are so many ways to create nail art that you shouldn’t just limit yourself to one brand. This Stylist dipped the end of a straw in the liquid polish and then blew it out onto her nails for the splatter effect. It looks amazing!
Who doesn’t love Hocus Pocus?? Here are a couple great designs for your 2021 Color Street Halloween inspiration!
For an extremely unique and fun design, why not go with Frankenstein? This is a fun take on the French Tip as well as having a entire nail dedicated to his face. As a tip, when using sharpie/permanent marker to write on Color Street use Clear As Day to seal it all in. Liquid nail polish top coats can easily smear the lines ruining all your hard work.
The creativity of some Stylists never cease to amaze me! Just look at this bride of Frankenstein design! She used a black fine tipped Sharpie to draw on the stiches as well as the eyes and eyelashes.
This is another one of my favorite designs I’ve come across. This one utilizes Feeling Fab-boo-lous, but not any of the ghost strips. Heat Wave Stylist exclusive was used for the orange, but you could easily recreate that color with High Voltage and Alter Ego!
I’m honestly surprised I haven’t seen more 2021 Color Street Halloween inspiration using Fired Up from the new Prism FX strips. This really gives some bloody vibes while still sparkling. This particular design used a matte top coat over everything to give it a muted look if you don’t want so much shine.
This design is definitely not your typical color scheme for Halloween, but I think it would be great inspiration for non traditional Halloween lovers. Shape Shifter is over Supercharged and Kilowatt to give it that shimmer look.
If you’re looking for a design that is festive, but not overly bright or crazy this one might be for you! It’s a beautiful subtle design with the solid green and spider webs. This Stylist put a matte top coat over all her nails, but if you wanted the shine you could leave that off.
Did someone say Spiderman? These nails are a unique take on the Spiderman theme with a little bit of a rugged look.
In October we wear Pink!
This Stylist decided to support breast cancer awareness for October as well as be festive for Halloween! I think she did a great job and Alter Ego makes everything better!
As a crazy cat lady, I LOVE this nailfie! This stylist captured the look purrfectly! The whiskers were made with the solid strips from Funny Bunny, but Swiss and Tell would work great as well.
Here is another take on cat eyes for your 2021 Color Street Halloween inspiration. It’s not as intricate as the last one, but if you’re short on time this design would be quicker and easier to recreate.
This nailfie is the perfect bloody inspiration for Halloween. Bad Blood has a natural shimmer/shine to it, but to get this exact look you’ll need to apply a liquid matte top coat prior to adding the Midnight in Manhattan ooze.
This is the first candy corn design I’ve seen this fall! And typically it was made with Squeeze The Day which is a retired set. Using Throwing Shade is genius! I love the chevron accent as well.
Another great way to create your own 2021 Color Street Halloween inspiration is to use other techniques, too! This Stylist used stamping plates/polish to create the designs instead of trying to cut them out. It saves a lot of time and stamping polish doesn’t take long to dry since there isn’t much of it used. I used stamping over Color Street to create a star/galaxy design last summer.
Hopefully you’ve found some great inspiration to get you thinking about your Halloween manicure this year. Make sure to keep checking back as I add more and more to the list!
