Are you looking for a unique and trending nail design to try out this year? If so, try Evil Eye nails to scare the bad vibes away.

If you’re a social media connoisseur, then you must have come across the Evil Eye that’s been popping up on different social media platforms as an emoji, graphics, videos, etc. It has also been featured in different fashion trends such as jewelry, pendants, and even clothes and shoes.

But first: don’t let the scary name fool you; the Evil Eye is anything but that! The famous “Evil Eye” amulet comes from the belief that when someone achieves great success, there is always another person who is envious of that success, and therefore has intentions of taking that away. Here comes the amulet, which is designed to ward off bad intentions, bad vibes, and envy.

The Evil Eye comes in the form of a cobalt blue circle, a white ring, a light blue ring, and then a black circle, all of which represent an “eye”. 

In recent years, one of the most popular ways to wear the Evil Eye is in the form of jewelry. But thanks to emerging nail trends, Evil Eye nail designs have also popped up left and right, giving us a new and unique way to ward off the bad juju.

If you’re looking for an easy way to radiate good karma, check out these 25 chic evil eye nail designs that we’ve spotted on Instagram, perfect to recreate at home or at the salon!
