As I thoroughly enjoyed creating my first NOTD, I decided to post another one! This one's very simple and minimal, however still attracts lots of attention. I honestly LOVE it! It's hard to explain how I created this design, as it's so easy to do, but ill have a go!

1) I used a base coat to help protect my natural nail.
2) I applied my first coat 'Easy Going', a nail polish from the 'Sinful Colours' range. It's my current go to polish, I adore it! (I'm not usually a big fan of light colours however this one I am loving!) http://www.sinfulcolors.co.uk/products

 3) I applied the second coat.

4) I then used gems and added them to the cuticle-area of my nail. I used body gems, simply because I ran out of nail gems- they all do the same thing after all... (These stuck on very well... I was impressed!)

5) I added a top coat.

& That's it, easy peasy right?

If you decide to do this design, or have previously done a similar one, then please let me know, via the comments, twitter or instagram, and ill have a browse through them!

I hope you liked this design! Let me know if you want more NOTD's.
