IMG_8433

Hello, fabulouses and welcome back to Beauty Tues.

This week on VIP Beauty Tues, I have a very awesome nail product to share with y’all! AH! Okay. *deep breath* 

For starters, do y’all remember when I interviewed the fabulously fashionable Food Network Star Emily Ellyn? Well, let’s take a quick glance back at the fun interview here to refresh our memories…

So, can any of y’all guess what my vintage soul sister and Drip Drop Nail Paint have in common? Hm…anyone? Bueller?….Bueller?….I’m sorry…I just had to make that reference *wink*

Now–let’s get serious. 

Drip Drop Nail Paint creates handmade nail lacquer that is not only three-free, but also cruelty-free. A cutesy BONUS is that each nail color has a cute name like “Yoga Pants” and “Vintage Jumpsuit”–How precious is that?! I am totally in love with Santa’s Pajamas–it really got me in the Christmas spirit!

So, how did I find out about this awesomeness called Drip Drop Nail Paint? Good question!

A few weeks ago, Emily Ellyn tweeted that she was excited about her new nail polish by Drip Drop, and when I saw that it was Retro Rad Red, I also became mega-excited! So, I immediately snatched up a pot of Emily Ellyn’s Retro Rad Red to try. It was a justifiable, spontaneous buy because red nail polish looks good with everything + it is handmade–y’all know how much the VIP loves to support handmade *wink*

I have tried A LOT of red nail polishes in my life, and Drip Drop’s Retro Rad Red is by far one of the best! It glides on smoothly + the color consistency is so fabulous I can get away with one coat. I give this product FIVE VIP BEAUTY STARS.

The Birmingham Home and Garden Show 2014 was four days jammed pack with celebrity guests, food tastings, inspiring outdoor displays, local vendors, and MORE! Can you believe it? All of that fabulousness in downtown Birmingham at the BJCC [Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex]!

I attended the Birmingham Home and Garden Show on Saturday, February 15, and I was amazed at the turn out! There were so many people chatting with local vendors, sampling food at the Western Supermarket pavilion, and snapping iPhone pictures of the awesome yard inspiration.
