Birthday Nails

It’s my birthday today!I turned 29, just a year away from the rather daunting 30. As a little treat to myself, I booked a trip to Scotland.

My trip through the Scottish highlands with my parents is still one of my favorite holidays, but I never had a chance to visit the bigger cities and decided to rectify this by spending a week in Edinburgh. I booked a flat overlooking a haunted cemetery (obviously).

I am not bringing my laptop to ensure I do no work whatsoever, so internet will be a little tricky. Posts will appear on the blog as normal, but I will not be responding to your lovely comments until I get back.

Because it is my birthday, it seemed appropriate to combine my two favorite polishes in a single look. I used Essie’s Maximillian Strasse Her as a base color and added the Loreal Confettis top coat.

I love this combo. It might be a Β bit more spring rather than winter, but I think I get away with it because it is my birthday πŸ˜‰


Birthday Nails

Vandaag is mijn verjaardag! Ik ben 29 geworden, nog maar een jaartje verwijdert van de belangrijke 30. Ik heb mezelf daarom maar een tripje naar Schotland kado gedaan.

Mijn reis door de Schotse Hooglanden met mijn ouders is nog steeds een van mijn favoriete vakanties, maar ik heb nooit de kans gehad om de grote Schotse steden te bezoeken. Daarom heb ik gekozen voor een weekje Edinburgh. Ik heb een flat gevonden met uitzicht over een spookachtig kerkhof (natuurlijk).

Ik neem mijn laptop niet mee om te zorgen dat ik niet stiekum alsnog ga werken, dus internet is wat lastig. Er komen gewoon posts online op het blog, maar ik kan helaas geen antwoord geven op jullie leuke commentaar tot ik terug ben.

Omdat het mijn verjaardag is, leek het me toepasselijk om mijn twee favoriete nagellakjes te combineren. Ik gebruikteΒ Essie’s Maximillian Strasse Her als basis en gebruikte daaroverheen de Loreal Confettis Topcoat.

Ik vind het een geweldige combinatie. Het is misschien wat meer geschikt voor de lente in plaats van de winter, maar ik vind dat het gewoon kan want het is ten slotte mijn verjaardag πŸ˜‰

    That is a lovely combo and as you said, it is a quite summery shade. Besides, a week in Edinburgh would be lovely and I hope you have lovely time over there.
