My New Nails!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday ♥ So as some of you might know already, I was recently in Gothenburg Sweden for a few days, and had the chance to have my nails done by the super talented NailsbyEffi from Instagram! To say I was excited to meet her would be an understatement :) I discovered her account a few weeks ago and absolutely adored her work! I was so happy to see she was based in Gothenburg as I had an upcoming trip there. She does gorgeous designs using different colors and textures, but also does the most beautiful natural nails! I love chic classic nails so this is exactly what I asked for. After prepping my nails, she applied a very natural tip, then filed them into an almond shape before applying a light pink gel on top. Having longer nails like this definitely makes me feel more fierce and girly haha. Thank you so much Effi, they are beautiful!!


This style is called almond natural gel

Where the magic happens

Lots of different glitters and textures to choose from
I love the chic, simple and cozy design


This must have been the cutest coziest nail salon I've ever been to. It was a very calm and relaxing place, and the candles she had on smelt lovely! These nails will last about 3 weeks with good care, and I was extra happy to hear the gel brand she used does not test on animals. You can also paint over these with other nail polishes and remove like usual if you want, but nude nails like this is personally my favorite :) Effi also explained the importance of moisturizing the cuticles daily with some oil or hand cream and to clean underneath the nails at night using a nail brush, which she so kindly also offered me. I am so happy with my nails and will definitely come next time I visit Gothenburg!

What do you think of these nails? Do you prefer natural or colored? Let me know in the comments! xoxo

  9. Your nails are GORGEOUS! It makes me miss my long nails so so much. I used to wear acrylic nails for years in this soft almond shape that you have but I decided to go natural a year and a half ago. My nails don't grow past a certain point so they never get this long. I know natural is better for me but I still lust over long, almond shaped nails. I'm liking this color too. It almost looks like a baby pink to white ombre.
