Sentence: Julie was a tough nut for the craic. She needed to be tough on account of her choice of footwear. The only thing tougher than Julie was Julie's feet, bulletproof they where. Very hardshell feet and a weakness for Gucci shoes or any strapless 6" heel, that's our Julie.

Etymology: Loose association of Hard sell and hard shell...which only makes sense to me, and in the context outlined above.
