Happy St Patrick’s Day! Today we are taking full advantage of the excuse to make today’s Miscellaneous Monday all about the colour green and taking inspiration from the Irish! Without further ado…
Favourite nail colour: Mint Candy Apple by Essie
As with everything Irish, we love getting the chance to celebrate one of our favourite nail polish colours. Mint Candy Apple is a gorgeous pale blue-green that’s just green enough to tip its hat to St Patrick’s Day, but not enough to be cringe-worthy. Whether you’re a bride, a wedding guest, or just on the lookout for a great new nail colour, we highly recommend this one. (Sold at Boots & Superdrug for £7.99).
Favourite Irish inspiration: Our St Patty’s Day Pinterest board
To be honest, we couldn’t narrow down our favourite source of inspiration, so we compiled it all into one Pinterest board! Click on the board to see all the bits of inspiration we’re loving this week – from tiny paper shamrocks, to pastel green decor, to birds nest bouquets and more!
Favourite fashion trend: green bridesmaids dresses
As with most colour trends, it isn’t always easy to incorporate green into the fashion of your wedding. You may feel limited in colour scope as a bride, and you may shy away from bold colours such as green for your bridesmaids. But we’re here to convince you otherwise. We love these two examples of green bridesmaids dresses (both light and dark – especially dark!). They’re classy, understated, and yet a truly gorgeous colour that will help along the colour theme of your wedding.
