It’s Halloween soon and we have pretty much no plans. We were going to do a party like last year but as we’re going away to Switzerland so soon there really hasn’t been much time to prepare anything so this seems like a good opportunity to bust out the Lazy Inspiration.

I present the laziest Halloween nail art ever..


Yes it’s so lazy that the only thing that makes it Halloween themed is the colours…. totally counts!

I played with a few version of this so first the completely basic one.

Start by making a diagonal stripe with the orange and painting in the top half of the nail. Once it’s dry, repeat in the other direction using black.

… that’s it!



To get slightly more involved you can continue alternating colours and sides painting diagonally. With two colours it becomes an interesting arrow pattern.

If you add in a third colour and alternate them over diagonal stripe it turns into a cute plaited pattern!


Wow that was some super lazy nail art. But hey… Halloween technically isn’t even one of our holidays here in Australia!
