Nicki Minaj Viva Glam Inspired St. Patrick's Day FOTD

Hey Guys!
Happy, belated, St. Patrick's Day! Yesterday, I went out with my besties to catch some sun on the patio and have a few green beers. It was such a beautiful day, it felt like summer. Everyone was wearing shorts, but I opted for some bright green tights to go under the black high waisted skirt I was wearing (not pictured). My outfit was inspired by a leprechaun. It feels really odd saying that...never thought I would say a leprechaun inspired my outfit choice LOL. Anyway, my makeup was also inspired, not by a leprechaun, thank goodness, but by Nicki Minaj's Viva Glam campaign. I've been wanting to copy her look for some time now, but have shied away since I'm not a huge fan of green eyeshadow. I actually really love how my makeup turned out. Here is a breakdown of everything I used:

We ended up running into a green dog...naturally, we had to take a photo with him.
Also, we felt like those little monkeys with the symbols that clap because of our silly green hats.
