October is here and you know what that means for the nail art community- vampy nail art, spiderweb designs and lots of orange nail polish! Yes, we go a little crazy this time of year, but we wouldn’t want it any other way! We hope you jump on the Halloween bandwagon with us because we have some fantastic themes for our monthly Nail Art Ideas Linkup. Do one theme, do them all, or do them out of order. Our N.A.I.L. linkup challenge is flexible! So let’s take a look at our October prompts…


Theme 1 – SPLATTER Nail art can get real messy at times, but that’s part of the fun, right? Splatter some colors on your nails and show us your unique design!

Theme 2 – TEXTURED Textured nail polish is so trendy right now. Find a textured polish in your stash and create a beautiful & bumpy manicure for this prompt.

Theme 3 – FAVOURITE INDIE Do you buy indie polishes? There are so many small indie shops that create one-of-kind lacquers that really impress. Show us your nails using one of your most coveted indies. A simple swatch is ok, nail art is optional for this one.

Theme 4 – PUMPKIN Pumpkin carving, pumpkin pies, pumpkin Starbucks, pumpkin nails…. there’s no escaping it in October!

Theme 5 – SPOOKY The only rule here is that your nails have a frightening feel to them. Happy Halloween!

How to Enter the October N.A.I.L. –

  1. Paint your nails using the suggested theme.
  2. Post your pics on your blog, instagram, tumblr, etc.
  3. Enter your post into our inlinkz below so everyone can see your pics.






Do one of the weekly themes, or do them all. It’s up to you! The dates for each week are only suggestions- you can post your nails whenever you want in October and you don’t have to do them in order. We encourage everyone to join in no matter what platform you use- blog, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. Don’t forget to share your nail pics via the inlinkz. These inlinkz will be open all month for entries. You can use hashtag #NAILLINKUP on your social media and please feel free to share our October graphic.
