Created by celebrity nail artist Brittney Boyce, the founder of Nails of LA who’s known for her goth glam manis, Fox’s Halloween mani combines two major fall trends: bright blood red and spooky, tattoo-inspired artwork depicting snakes, not unlike the serpent-inspired look Emily Ratajkowski sported earlier this year.
Boyce previously told Glamour that blood-red nails would be one of the biggest trends for Halloween 2023. “Dark mattes will be popular,” she said. “Think dark green, black, and even a blood red.” The other side of the spectrum is everything chrome: “Silver chrome is also here to stay, and I’m obsessed with it.”
Boyce and Fox are also both fans of elevating nails with decals and decor, which is exactly what they did for Fox’s look this time around. “I love adding 3D metal jewelry at times,” Boyce continued. “For a DIY approach, I suggest using nail art decals. They’re pretty easy to use and look amazing.”
Case in point: Fox’s goth glam mani, a gorgeous blend of blood red, which is the shade Poison by Arctic Fox Hair Color, and gothic imagery like crosses, moons, spiders, spiderwebs, and snakes.
