As a rule, adjectives go after nouns in Spanish language. However, sometimes there´s a slight difference when using the adjective bemphasized textefore the noun. ´He tenido un fantástico día´, for example, conveys a personal appreciation. It´s not the same as ´Ha sido un día fantástico´. As I said, it´s a slight difference that becomes more vivid with usage.

Just a rule, ali, we use the adjective after the noun, not before it.
