It's St. Patrick's Day this weekend! That means it's the perfect opportunity to get creative with nail art. That's right - there is so much more than just wearing green clothing. You can go one step further and express yourself with nail polish (and a bit of glitter). Kidzworld has scoured the blogosphere for easy DIY ways to decorate your nails. Check out our edit of the best below and get painting! All you need is nail polish (preferably green of course), nail polish pens and glitter

RAINBOWS

Choose your favorite shade of green nailpolish and make sure to do at least a double coat. Let them dry and then go nuts with multi-color nail art pens. Simply paint a rainbow on all nails or just pick one to make it stand out.

GO DOTTY

This one is so super easy! You can either paint white polka dots onto green nails or vice versa. Or go lime green with gold polka dots - whatever you're in the mood for!

GOLD GLITTER

Simply paint your nails green and put gold glitter on one half of the nail. So sparkly and festive!

GREEN CHECKS

This one's a bit more complicated but the payoff is worth it! All you need is green, white and black polish and you can do this cool check pattern yourself!

SHAMROCKED

More subdued than the rest, this design still makes a big statement! The shamrock can be any color but you gotta have green in there somewhere!

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
