Good evening everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely St. Patrick’s Day! I had once again a hectic day at the hospital but I was determined to stick with tradition by making a tasty Irish dinner tonight. My Dad’s mother and father were Irish descendants so growing up that was one holiday we always seemed to celebrate and I have carried that into adulthood by incorporating nail art every year and cooking an Irish inspired dinner.
Tonight I want to share my nails first. This year I am loving my color combo! I started off with two coats of Merida by Zoya. This was a super-rich green jelly blend filled with holographic flecks (perfect for pulling in some rainbows into my mani). Next, I used Dourado by Le Femme with a stamping plate that had some cute four-leaf clovers image. I sealed it all with two coats of Liquid Marvel Top Coat by SuperChic Lacquer.
What do you guys think of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day look? I am in love! I especially like how at certain angles the four-leaf clovers are almost hidden… it makes me think of my childhood hunting for four-leaf clovers with my mom.
Now for my dinner tonight! Since my schedule is so hectic right now at the hospital and I am so exhausted at the end of it (yesterday I walked 7 miles and only sat down for my 30-minute lunch during my 11-hour shift) I wanted to take advantage of my Instant Pot. My mom got me one for Christmas last year and I have been experimenting. Tonight’s dinner was a huge success and has me loving my pot even more! For dinner I went with a Corned Beef recipe I found at Delish. Everything is cooked in one pot so not only was cooking a breeze, clean up was super easy! If you have an Instant Pot, I give this recipe a huge thumbs up! Best Corned Beef I’ve ever had!
Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? What is your favorite tradition? Thank you so much for stopping by tonight and I hope you all are playing it safe this holiday! Love you guys and I will see you all again soon!
