Happy St. Patrick's Eve!

While I enjoy imbibing alcoholic beverages, inhaling boxtys (fried potato dumplings from heaven) and frequenting pubs, I'm not big on St. Patrick's Day.

Despite the fact that it is considered an Irish holiday, I almost find my lack of celebration to be un-American. I don't really drink beer (especially ill-looking green carbonated water) and I'm frequently pinched every March 17.

But this year, it'll be different!

Lo, and behold, readers: GREEN!

The base is China Glaze's Gussied Up Green, a blackened forest green. The half-moon is LA Colors Art Deco nail art pens in gold and the sheer green overlay is Hard Candy Tantrum. My nails feel like they belong in South Bend.

A quick note: I recently scooped up CHI and Hard Candy nail polishes at TJ Maxx, so hopefully you frequent bargain shoppers like myself can get yourself some decent hauls :) Also, my favorite Sterilite 6 qt. storage boxes are on sale at Target; 2 for $3! Now all I need is storage space!

EDIT: I just remembered; I also saw a Barielle Shades French mani set at TJ Maxx too. It looks pretty good; I might pick it up at a later time.

I really like your mani dah-link!

Brooke--Thanks! I wish my Dollar Tree would sell more DC'd polishes instead of really crappy polishes! I haven't seen any drugstore brands being stocked; now all I see is subpar stuff that are either for French manicures or crappy pink/reds!

Very pretty mani. I hate beer and beer breath. I don't think it being green would improve my liking of beer. Also too many obnoxious drunks. My stomach isn't feeling too good so there won't be any pub visits. Would like to just listen to some Irish band.

Cute look... makes me think about gold coins peeking out of a leprechaun's pot!
