Evil eyes are one of the biggest jewelry trends of the last few years, but these motifs aren't restricted to just bracelets, necklaces and rings — they're also making waves in the world of nail art.

1. Prep the nail and apply a base coat.
2. Grab your favorite shade of polish and a detail brush (you can buy these at your favorite beauty supply store). Outline the shape of a moon at the base of the nail and only color above it. The area closest to the cuticle should not have polish.
3. Dip a dotting tool (another item you can pick at your local supply store) in the polish and add the circle detail in the area that's not painted.
Pro tip: You can use a pencil eraser or a toothpick instead of dotting tool.
4. Finish off with top coat and let dry. It's that simple!
