Vanessa Hudgens just showed off a spooky, all-black nail polish look that’s simple to get and perfect for the Halloween season. Treat yourself to a dark manicure like Vanessa’s — no tricks about it.

Vanessa Hudgens, 26, is officially our fall inspo. The actress and singer shared an Instagram selfie, looking super cozy and cute in a knit, burnt orange sweater and shiny black nails to complete her fall style. Find out how you can channel her look with our nail polish suggestions below!

Vanessa already showed off the metallic nails trend earlier this fall with a rose gold mani, but for her latest look, she went a bit darker.

To copy her style, make sure you start by applying a base coat, which is especially important when using dark colors since they stain your nails more than pastel shades. Once your base coat is dry, paint two thin coats of Essie Nail Polish in Licorice, letting the polish dry in between coats. Finish with a shiny top coat.

If you want to add a little more edge to your mani, switch out the Essie for a coat of JinSoon Nail Polish in Chamonix. The polish gives nails a textured, black leather-inspired finish, so be sure to skip the top coat in order to keep the textured effect.

Vanessa Hudgens’ Black Nails — Copy Her Mani For The Halloween Season

Vanessa appeared to be rocking the no-makeup makeup look with her mani, but you could just as easily go full-on goth with a wine-stained lip to make it even more seasonal.

Will you be copying Vanessa’s all-black mani for Halloween?
