Of course you want to wear green makeup for St. Patrick's Day! It's an especially good year to do so -- after all, according to Pantone, emerald is the colour of 2013. Go all out with statement eye makeup, or try a sweep of green liner and mascara. A green mani is mandatory, and go ahead -- shamrock one cheek. I'm thinking green faux lashes, myself...

And just for St. Paddy's, it's okay to pretend emerald and green are interchangeable terms, whatever the hue.

Staff helpfully assembled this slideshow (she wanted this emerald nail-tip ring to accessorize her St. Paddy's Day ensemble), deliberately skipping a nail-polish slide. Instead we thought we'd ask you: what your fave green-day polish or press-on nail colour?
