Happy St Patty's Day!

I. Love. St Patty's. This holiday is definitely in my top three favorites. What's not to love about wearing ridiculous green outfits and accessories, drinking Irish whiskey and, you know, revelry? In college, my friends and I would always go to Savannah to celebrate. Now, we keep it closer to home. 

 Shenanigans with my hubs and friends at a 
St Pat's beach pub crawl this past weekend 

Since I already did my celebrating this weekend, I wanted to share my essentials for an everyday, but still leprechaun friendly, look. 

 Green essentials for today

First off, this lovely green nail polish in Hedge Fund from Ruffian. I love this little sample I got in a Birchbox a few months ago and it's perfect for being festive on this green holiday. Also, a gold glitter polish for an accent nail. Whatever. I'm still a huge fan of an accent nail. Especially a glitter one. 

Since a Monday St Pat's celebration calls for something a little more toned down than a weekend pub crawl, I opted for a subtle hint of green with Urban Decay's 24/7 Liner in Stash, a darker metallic green perfect for a pop on the lower lashline. For a little extra oomph, I paired it with Stila's Kitten smudge crayon and brought the Stash liner up into the outer corner and blended. (Sorry for no pics of the makeup look, spring time allergies caused me to rub just about all of my eye makeup off today before I could snap a photo).

And finishing off the look with this great pair of emerald earrings I snagged from Target last year during Emerald's reign as Pantone's Color of the Year in 2013. 

Happy St Patrick's Day lovelies! What's your favorite way to show your inner green goddess?
