St Patty's Day Manicure

My friend's birthday is today and we are going to a good ol' fashion Irish Pub to celebrate her Birthday & St/ Patty's Day. I figured I would give myself a cool manicure for the occasion. the problem is that I worked a 10 hour day, then went shopping for a gift for my friend (Hey I've been another busy, so last minute shopping it is!), then I came home ate dinner and met up with a neighbor for a bit while the kids played outside. Now back in the house, the kids are in bed and I have a chance to put a manicure together. I am exhausted! I just want to go to sleep, but I figure I can push through. Needless to say the idea of this manicure was cool, but the execution is shody at best. I really need to get my act together. If I was looking at another blog seeing this, I would wonder why the girl even posted it. But since I am tired and just want to get to bed, you get to see my bad work. Even though by the time you see this I will be at work busting my behind. Oh well, such is life sometimes. Not everything can be perfect and neither is this manicure.



Now that I have shown you, I may just march my little (big) behind upstairs and just take this mani off! 

But so I leave you with something nice, this last weekend was another friends birthday and we celebrated with a 70's inspired bash. Here I am with Juan wearing our 70's attire. Juan got his stuff at a thrift store that same day. Me on the other hand - well ironically, all those items came out of my closet! But put together it gave a pretty decent 070's vibe if I do say so myself! Check out that blue eyeshadow!

LOVE these shoes! OK so not so much 70's with the exception of the platform, but SOOO hot! Juan asked where I got the stripper shoes! WHAT? I love these shoes! How dare he! 

the obligatory Charlie's Angel's shot when posing in 70's attire...except I am missing two angel's! :(

Happy St Patrick's Day everyone! Please make sure if you go out to have a good time today, that you remain responsible and get a designated driver or call a cab if you need one. Just one mistake can cost a life. I hope everyone stays safe today while enjoying some fun! I will be drinking some water this evening since I am driving, and you know what - that is perfectly fine with me, since I will still have a great time with my girls! Enjoy!

  5. That's an awesome St. Patty's mani! I never would've thought to do a half moon look, but that is too cool. I want to change my mani now!! And I love those shoes too ;)

  10. @DanielleI cleaned it up and wore it for a day and couldn't wait to take it off! I am too much of a perfectionist and the lines just weren't good enough for me!

  11. @Original_WackyYou are too kind! If it makes you feel better I have to take a ton of pics before I find one where I look good enough. I think I am a pretty average looking person who fixes up nicely. HA!

  12. @AprilI wanted to do a 70's afro - but I ran out of time, so went for the extreme feathered hair. :)

  13. @AndiI was originally going to do it in red & gold, but for St Patty's day I switched to green. You should do it and post it.

  14. @jbrobeckI think so too - the outfit isn't a perfect 70's replica, but with the hair, it works out! Thanks on the shoes! I love them too! I wish I could wear them more though.

  15. @kittypolishnbagsYou never tried a french? Wow! I used to wear french mani's all the time! I still occasionally do. I admit it. :)

  16. @ZaraI love the combo too - I just wish I could perfect the lines though.

  17. @SI used 5 coats of OPI Dazzled by Gold. It is a very thin sheer polish, so you can use 5 coats and only have the thickness of about 2 coats. It sounds like a lot and typically I would hate a polish that needs this many coats, but I love this one. I can use it over another color just to give it shimmer or I can build it up like I did for the mani. Then I used a green I created with some pigments.
