I'm All About That Base...Lauren B Beauty Nail Perfecter


Of all the base coats, Lauren B Beauty's Nail Perfecter Base Coat is the fairest of the land.

The Nail Perfecter Base Coat is to the nails what BB creams are for the face. This mildly tinted basecoat evens out discoloration, and smooths out problematic texture on the nails.


It can be used to prime the nail surface and prevent staining. However, I like to live dangerously, and never use this product under colored polishes. There are two specific ways I like to use the Nail Perfecter Base Coat: the first of my ways is under glitter polishes. Whenever I want the glitter to be the main focal point, and not bogged down or distracted by a base shade, I whip this darling out. Second, (and the primary way I love to use this base coat) is by itself. A fast-drying formula, the Nail Perfecter Base Coat has a beautiful satin-matte finish that gives my nails a MNBB effect (my nails, but better), creating a polished (pun intended), understated-chic, flesh-toned mannequin hand.

Hot & Resilient...Village Candle Indian Summer


This Fall has been one big ol' Indian Summer; it was consistently hot and humid, with peppered respites of cooler temperatures that were shorter lived than the blossoming of the Sakura.


The notes of Village Candle's Limited Edition Indian Summer are Festive Pumpkin, Persimmon, and Clove. I burned the candle during the beginning of the season, and I guess I don't like the scent of Persimmon; it overpowered the other two notes, and made the fragrance just "okay" for me.


It's a shame Indian Summer didn't work out as well as I had wanted because I love Village Candles. One positive I can give the candle is its throw. I always buy Village Candles large jars or tumblers, but at the time of purchase the largest size available was the medium. The scent throw was great, as I could smell Indian Summer in two rooms.
