Green Goodies for St. Patrick's Day!

I'm not Irish. But people usually tend to think I am until I tell them differently. Why? Who knows! But that means I am totally getting in on the green spirit because today is St. Patrick's Day! Check out my fave green goodies after the jump.

China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Watermelon Rind ($2.99 at head2toebeauty.com): This unbelievably gorgeous forest green is part of the new Summer Days collection, and it seriously looks just like jelly on your nails. The shimmer is intense, the color is incredibly pigmented, and it's under $5! What more could you ask for?

DuWop Green Eyes Palette ($32 at beauty.com): I seriously can never get enough of these palettes. This one comes packed with tons of shadows and liners guaranteed to make your eyes pop.

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Lotus Eau de Toilette Spray ($37 at elizabetharden.com): Ready for summer? Then spritz a little bit of this floral fragrance on your pulse points and sniff away ... you'll be transported to warm, sandy beaches and beautifully sunny days.

Shu Uemura Premium Velvet Feather False Eyelashes in Deep Forest ($50 at nordstrom.com): Okay. All I can say about these is WOW. Does it get any more dramatic than a set of dark green feathers stuck on your eyelashes for a night out on the town? I think not.

Lush Luck of the Irish Bath Bomb ($7.95 at lush.com): Well, what would St. Patty's day be without a little shamrock action? Feel lucky when you drop this lemongrass-and-avocado-infused baby into the bath.

Yes to Cucumbers Cleansing Cucumber Shower Gel ($8.99 at walgreens.com): Now, I know what you're thinking. Cucumber as the main ingredient in a shower gel? I don't want to smell like a salad! Well, the good news is, you won't. You'll just feel totally refreshed and energized after lathering up.


  1. My hubby got me a bottle of Watermelon Rind this weekend because he liked the color and I'm wearing it right now for St. Patrick's Day - it's a beautiful green, glittery without being actual glitter nail polish. I love it!
