Like every other 2020 holiday, Halloween will look different this year, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate. Our favorite safe and creative alternative to trick-or-treating is the Zoom costume party, wherein all you have to do is plan your hair, makeup, and manicure (which will be front and center as you reach across your laptop and dig into the candy bowl). With many people taking a break from the salon during the pandemic, DIY manicures might still be your preference. But if you want to add art — like a spooky chic adaptation on candy corn — press-on nails are a much easier option than trying to paint tiny stripes of gradient orange across your fingernails. Ahead, we've assembled the best Halloween-themed press-on nails to order this week and have at your doorstep by October 31st.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

These manicures are so on-theme.
The COVID-19 pandemic means a lot more virtual hangouts — but you still need a clutch costume.
We're not trying to rush the calendar, but we just want to remind you that everyone's favorite fall holiday will be here in less than two weeks. If you can't bring yourself to start costume planning just yet, you can subtly ease into the season by adding shades of orange and black to your fingernails. For some suggestions on how to do that — in the least cheesy way possible — we've amassed a few Halloween nail-art looks that will be big this season. From glossy black with dripping accents to minimalist pumpkin-orange French tips, scroll through to find your chic Halloween-ish manicure — the kind you'll want to wear now and well into November. Striped TipThis striped tip out of NYC's Paintbox Studio is unexpected and just happens to pair the Halloween-appropriate burnt orange and black tones.Orange French If you're partial to the traditional French tip, just make the design orange for October — like this chic visual courtesy of boutique London nail salon Townhouse. It's festive enough, right?Black Cauldron Nail artist Park Eunkyung shows us black bubbling cauldron, but makes it chic.Edgy OrbitThe orbit nail is edgy on its own, though nail artist Dalia proves a jet-black polish makes it ideal for the spooky season.Crescent MoonA gold crescent-moon decal in the middle of a black French mani is the cool-girl way to do seasonal nail art, according to London manicurist Imarni Nails.Candy Corn Just when you thought candy corn was tacky, Miami's Vanity Projects salon takes the tri-tone inspiration and spins it into something more current.Harvest MoonEssie's global nail artist, Rita Remark, calls this look the "Harvest Moon mani."
