In our experience, there are two types of people in this world: Those who spend weeks planning their month-long Halloween festivities (complete with a big bash, plenty of horror movies, and several over-the-top costumes) and those who wait until the last-minute to decide what they'll wear—or if they'll even dress up. Think outside the traditional Halloween, err, coffin, with this old school tattoo-themed nail art by Emily Isabella that could work with a variety of costumes—or just on their own!

The worst part of Halloween: realizing your great costume idea is going to cost way too much money to put together. While you may dream of walking into your Halloween party in a getup that would even make Heidi Klum jealous, it's possible that's just not in your budget this year.
Like the humble witch ensemble, the vampire is undoubtedly one of the most popular Halloween costumes of all time, and for good reason: It has just enough creep factor for the spooky holiday, plus with creative makeup (which is really what takes the look to the next level), it's easy to pull together. Minus Count Dracula's cape and maybe some fangs to place over your teeth, chances are you can get by at the last minute with wardrobe staples. For more traditional vampires cut from storybooks, a black suit or a dress will do just fine.
