St.Patty's Day Pot Of Gold Water Marble Manicure!

As I attempt to write this blog, I keep distracting myself with random outbursts of laughter. I didn't notice this until now, but the water marble portion of this manicure reminds me of a couch my mom had in our living room when I was growing up. It's a pretty design and color scheme for a manicure, but a couch? Not so much. It makes me wonder what my mom was thinking when she bought it!? Love you mom :)
March is an awesome month for me and not just because I happen to have a birthday this month. St. Patrick's Day is this month and it brings back some fond childhood memories. Being that I have quite a bit of Irish in me, my grandparents always embraced our Irish heritage. It was common to see Irish flags around their house and my grandfather sipping on Guinness while playing Irish music. I loved it. One of my fondest memories is singing Irish lullaby's with my grandfather as a little girl. I'd crawl onto his lap and together we would sing for hours on end and I knew every song word for word. I loved to hear my grandpa sing. Sometimes I would just sit there and watch him, mesmerized at how soothing his voice was. His voice was perfect and for some reason, I always liked the slight hint of Guinness on his breath.
 I went off on a tangent. Back to nail talk.
So, when March comes around, I always enjoy embracing my Irish heritage by doing a manicure that celebrates it and St. Patricks Day! It also helps that my favorite color is green. It's like a win, win for me! So here's the water marble that I came up with.

Love this! This is what I like to  call an accidental masterpiece, if I may. I forgot that I had already done a St.Patty's Day water marble manicure on my YouTube, so I decided instead of removing the design I'd just add a little more to it; make it a little more Irish-like. So, I added a little pot of gold. Cute, right?!
