St. Patrick's Day Nails, Decor, and Treats!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

To get into the festive mood I painted my nails.
I got my March box for Julep in the mail which came with everything to make a beautiful St. Patrick's Day nail look.

I already had polish on and some of it was glitter polish so I used the Party's Over kit to remove it.

I was amazed how it completely wiped my nails clean of polish, even the glitter was gone!

I used all three shades in the box as well as the decals to create my look which includes: Lucky, Brigitte, and Margot. The only way to get the decals now is a part of this set.

This was my final look.  I love how this came out!  I used the Clean Slate pen to clean up the edges so it actually doesn't look half bad.

I decided to decorate my office area at work with some St. Patrick's Day decorations.
I printed some signs out from Pinterest and cut clovers out from green paper and stuck them on the wall right next to my desk.  I actually really like how this turned out. 

I have had this little owl guy at work since Halloween and I put these clover rings on his spiky feather bits to make him more festive.

I had some leftover green tinsel garland from Christmas that I put up with another sign on the window by the door to my office.

I usually go to my Mum's for dinner for St. Patty's, but since it's the middle of the week this year I'm just dreaming of her corned beef.
To tide me over I've been ogling a few recipes that I definitely want to try.

This corned beef and cabbage recipe from The Pioneer Woman is a twist on the classic and it looks delicious.  Seriously my mouth is watering just looking at it.

These Guinness and Bailey's Cupcakes from Cupcakes & Couture sound so good and would be perfect accompanied by the next recipe.

This Irish Coffee recipe from The Pioneer Woman looks absolutely delicious.  Look at all that glorious cream!

I wish you a wonderful St. Patrick's Day to all my Irish (and non-Irish) followers out there!
