I'm back! (with some Barcelona pictures)

It seems that I took a little unplanned blog vacation. I'm sorry I didn't announce it in any way beforehand but frankly I didn't plan it at all. I guess life just happened. But I'm back now and I have quite a lot of posts planned for you guys, so there will definitely be more life here in my blog from now on.

I got to spend a well needed vacation last month in Barcelona, so I thought I'd share some vacation collages and my vacation manicure with you today.

Love love loved the reflection colors inside Sagrada Familia! I'll definitely need to use this as an inspiration for some great nail art!

We really had a great time, Barcelona is such a wonderful city! I highly recommend visiting it at some point, if you haven't already.




Oh and my vacation manicure? I took the inspiration for this simple look from the Yellow Nails blog. I really loved Anni's beautiful dotting tool manicure and I did it pretty much the same for myself. I just changed the colors a bit and I also tried to vary the dot size a bit too. I used Essie Sand Tropez as my base color and I did three thin coats with it. I'm pretty sure I've used it before for a vacation manicure too. Sand Tropez is definitely one of my favorite nudes, if not THE favorite, and I pretty much always wear something nude for my vacations since it doesn't show a little wear, dents and such as easily as some bolder colors do. For the dots I used Dance Legend Holy Diver and I just can't get over how pretty the polish is! It worked perfectly combined to the nude base and I loved this simple look very much.

And if you wondering, I took the nail pictures in the gorgeous colorful Park Güell. It was one of my favorite spots that we visited in Barcelona and it was pretty perfect spot to take some nail pictures. It would be so great to have something like it to use as a background more often, but unfortunately I'm going to need to settle for my lightbox in the future.

It's great to be back, I've missed blogging and of course all you guys! I hope to see you back here really soon!

    1. Kiitos paljon! :) Annin lakkaus on kyllä niin kaunis, että se jäi kyllä mullakin mieleen pitkäksi aikaa kunnes oli pakko toteuttaa itsekin! :)

    1. Kiitos paljon! Reissuostoksia ei itseasiassa ihan hirveästi tullut tehtyä, eli varmaankin vilautan niitä ehkä vain Instagramin puolella ellen sitten kuitenkin innostu postausta kirjoittelemaan niistä. :)
