This is my first NOTD, for a good reason. I'm not exactly talented in the old nail art department, my nails more than often end up in a gluey, glittery mess whenever I attempt anything more complicated that a straight foward one nail colour, but today I was feeling particulary creative, and sprung up with this little frenchie....

I used...

(Sally Hansen Natural White, Boots French Pink, Barry M Topcoat)
+ some little heart nail gems

I went for the classic manicure, plus a little twist with the tiny heart, and I'm actually really pleased with the result!

Some would say the gems a little 'chavtastic', but hey, what girl doesn't adore a bitta' bling?

So what do you think of gems stuck on nails?  Trashy or classy?


  1. They look super cute! I think gems look okay as long as they aren't too in your face "bling bling" (Wow I haven't used that word in ages!) haha

  2. aww the little heart is so cute!! definitely not trashy :)

  3. Hannah this is gorgeous. Very classy in my opinion because it is so minimalist. I really really like it!

  4. wow, i can never manage to do a straight line haha, the gem is the cherry on top! xxxxx
