Spirit Halloween has 1,300 stores in the U.S. and Canada . It is truly a one-stop-shop for all Halloween and cosplay necessities. Every year around August, Spirit starts to form teams of seasonal employees who help out with the shopping season, which typically runs through November. With the season now in full swing, employees have been sharing some behind-the-scenes tidbits. First thing’s first, Spirit Halloween employees have to love Halloween. One employee told Mental Floss that he’d never met another employee who wasn’t as obsessed with the holiday as he was in the five years of working at the store. Employees have to live up to certain rules while under contract for the chain. It’s Spirit policy that only employees open up packages. If you’ve ever opened a package in a Spirit Halloween and gotten a weird look from an employee, that’s why. There are also rules about trying on costumes — especially masks. They also hate when customers use the aisles for changing rooms

These manicures are so on-theme.
From why you shouldn't buy the first mask you see to the spookiest stories that have happened during a shift.
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.

If you're looking for a safe yet totally creepy way of ringing in Halloween, why not try an out-of-the-box idea like a haunted road trip? Eerie drives through roads known for ghosts, apparitions, and mysterious disappearances aren't exactly for the faint of heart, but they could make for the most memorable Halloween ever. From a road that's said to be home to a vanished Boy Scout troop to the street adjacent to Area 51 that's known as "Extraterrestrial Highway," America is full of winding highways and dark back roads that are spine-tingling and hair-raising. Even if you're not so sure about actually hitting the road and getting close to a few spirits, you can keep reading and live vicariously through 11 of the most haunted roads in America, according to Commercial Truck Trader. And if you do venture to any of these spots, just know it's a surefire way of getting in the All Hallows' Eve spirit. Related: I Lived in Salem, and This Is What It's Really Like During Halloween
