IMG_9825

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

I see a red door, and I want it painted black….what about fade to black? *wink*

For this “Black to Basics” Weekly Whistle, I took some inspiration from The Rolling Stones and Metallica and decided to fade the red door black with a vintage jumpsuit and some killer photos.

So, I am going to jump right to the chase because this Black to Basics ensemble + photo shoot is too cool for chit chat *wink* So turn on some Rolling Stones and/or Metallica and embrace the fabulousness of basic black :)

Beauty Tues: Drip Drop Nail Paint “Emily Ellyn’s Retro Rad Red”

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.
