It's St. Patrick's Day tomorrow! Besides the traditional, erm, indulgences of that holiday, it's also a perfect opportunity to indulge in some nail art.

We scoured the internet for some cute and inspirational (and occasionally out-there) designs. Whether you like full-on bling or have more subtle taste, we found lots of ideas from amazing nail bloggers. Click through to check them out.

Pot O'Gold: Perfect rainbows on every nail. Extra bonus points for the glittery gold in the pot. {Kayla Shevonne}

Green Ombré with Glitter: A fantastic two-color ombre, made party-ready with some glitter on top. {Deez Nailz}

Irish Pride: The Irish flag ribbon effect and the perfect sharock stencils make this design a standout. It's also obviously not for the beginner nail artist. {Madam Luck}

Green Marbling: This marbled design looks almost looks like snakeskin. {Never Too Much Glitter}

Mad for Plaid:A more subtle way to do St. Patrick's Day. {Stephs Closet for video tutorial}

Rainbow and Pot of Gold: The rainbow stretches over a few nails, and the gold is made with beads. Love the attention to detail. {Adventures in Acetone}

Neon green gets a St. Paddy's Day nod with four leaf clovers on one finger. {Sonoma Nail Art}

Green and White Polka Dots: Simple, yet still holiday appropriate. {Shine, Shimmer, Sparkle}

Geometric: A clever way to celebrate with green, but still have a manicure that won't look ridiculous on March 18. {PumpkinCat}
