16 Evil-Eye Nails You Won't Be Able to Look Away From
Whether you call it ayn al-hasud, malocchio, nazar, or evil eye, you're probably familiar with this symbol, because it's having a serious moment. Sure, you can wear it in jewelry form, but evil-eye nails are so much fun. There's no better time to put a seasonal twist on your nails by embracing new designs and bright colors.
Everyone from celebrity manicurist Miss Pop to DJ and entrepreneur Hannah Bronfman has been seen wearing evil-eye nail art at one point or another. There are so many different ways you can tailor the design to fit your unique style. For example, musician Machine Gun Kelly debuted a hot-pink evil-eye manicure complete with long black eyelashes, while actor Ashley Benson wore her evil-eye design on top of a supermodel base color for a minimal approach.
Another thing we love about this nail trend is that you can get it in the salon or DIY it at home. While it may look a little daunting to execute at home, don't be scared. Evil-eye manicures are actually pretty easy to re-create at home using nail-art pens and a simple dotting tool. You can have fun with different designs and colors, or go the classic route as a good-luck charm.
This trend isn't going to fade anytime soon, so get inspiration for evil-eye nails ahead.
