If you're at all like me, then you find it difficult to commit to a single signature scent. I've been reading Perfumes: The Guide every night before I fall asleep, and there are so many scents that I absolutely must try. I found a great website Luckyscent.com that allows you to sample mini-vials of designer perfumes before you commit to buying an entire bottle, and you can also read reviews and vivid descriptions of the scents. They have an amazing selection of samples that includes many obscure/hard-to-find items.
On an entirely unrelated note, I just learned a great trick from Totalbeauty.com. Apparently if you dip your freshly manicured hands in ice-water, your polish will harden, so that you won't have to wait around for your nails to dry. I assume if it works for a manicure it will work for a pedicure too. Genius!
P.S. I'm taking requests this week for topics/info/questions that you'd like me to tackle on beautyinchelsea.com. These can range from topics as specific as the best brand of hot pink nail polish to questions as broad as "What are some of the good art shows coming up this fall?" Add your questions/topics to the comments section! Check out my new business card on the right illustrated with one of my fashion designs.
