No need to be do the sexy thing if you don’t want to, there are options for cool and funky styles that bring out your holiday flair without flaunting your pots of gold. Painting your nails with green polish, spraying your hair with temporary spray, and wearing body tattoos are a great way to show your Irish pride.
