NAIL FILES: Chiquita Banana

And after a week of no posts, we meet again my sweet readers! Going back to Europe after a month in my beloved Mexico always means chaos. Between the jet lag, the cold and harsh Winter, a month’s worth of dust inside my apartment, cleaning, unpacking, school and yes, spending time with my gentle giant, I’ve only begun to adjust to my daily life (hence the lack of posts). But I am back, and since our last NAIL FILES post was all about X-mas and we are so over it right now, another one is in order. I’m craving Spring more than ever, not only because I am a S/S kind of gal, but also because I have returned to frozen hell (Italy) after many days in my warm heaven I like to call Mexico. So, while we long for the most beautiful season of them all, why not get our nails ready for it. What better way to do so, than with a little inspiration from the queen of bright and samba, Miss Carmen Miranda and her fruits!
