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!

I have my earlobe pierced, and I'm considering getting a piercing elsewhere on my ear. I'm thinking my outer conch at the moment.  Do you have ear piercings? Where? What looks good to you? Any advice?
