More is more when it comes to nails in the world of Australian-based nail artist, Miss Betty Rose, which makes her an authority on spooky Halloween sets. “My most requested Halloween designs are flame and skull designs, monster graphs and occult-based looks,” she adds.

As for what designs and details she’s gearing up to paint this year? “I love to layer jelly colors for Halloween to give dimension with the design,” she says. “Jelly blacks and brown with fine line detail between the layers make a great base for the most spooky designs.”
