Want to feel festive on Halloween without wearing a costume or full on beauty look? Paint on a simple yet festive manicure instead and call it good. While we love the traditional orange and black, there are plenty of other shade pairings to try—from scarlet red and luxe burgundy to vibrant violet and holographic silver. You can even DIY your manicure at home, no nail art required. Simply apply each shade on a few fingers on each hand or try a color-blocked look and paint each nail half one shade and half another.
