28 Instagram Captions For Halloween Nail Art That's Sparkly & BOOtiful

There's nothing more bootiful on Halloween night than the glow of the moonlight. Well, that and your nails. About a week before, you go to your local salon, or pick up a new polish at the store. Some years, you've gone for something gold and sparkly to match the pumpkins on your front step. Other years, you've gone for a dark shade of green or black, to blend in with the night. Now, it's that time of the year again, and you're planning on going all out with your look. Girl, you need some Instagram captions for Halloween nail art, because those cute little ghosts on your index fingers can't go unnoticed.

Sure, you could paint your nails purple and orange, in the spirit of the season. But, it's so much more fun (and challenging) to cover your claws in spiderwebs. You track down the skinniest brushes, and look on Pinterest for some extra inspiration. Let's be honest: It takes a couple of tries to recreate that picture just right on your own nails. You figure it out, though, and realize that the time you spent is totally worth it, because you're left with artwork that deserves to be on the 'Gram.

Like getting a new haircut, a fresh coat on your nails means that you have to post a picture. Otherwise, it didn't really happen. Those are the rules, from what I know. You need to keep your followers up-to-date on your latest look, and how you're getting involved in the festivities. Not to mention, their comments are always sweet and make you feel like a pro. *Cue the blushing and heart emojis.* (Honestly, you couldn't draw that ghost or witch hat that perfectly again if you tried. But, they don't need to know that. )

That's why you need to throw your fingers up on the feed right now. Don't waste another second, because you never know when one is going to decide to chip. (Ugh, even thinking about that moment makes you want to cringe. Can't nail polish just last forever?)

Now all you have to do is pick out one of these #captions for nail art. Those cute little ghosts aren't going to wait around for eternity — they're not vampires, after all.
