Best Bet: Dripping in Diamonds


Essie just debuted three new nail colors with the help of jewelry designer Judith Ripka. The paint trio hit salons and the web this month, and already we've snagged Heart My JR Jewels, a dark-burgundy color that's a great alternative to black. The two other shades are a subtle blush pink named Put a Ripka Ring on It and a fire-engine red called Queen of Hearts. The polishes are supposedly infused with "diamond dust" for an extra-shimmery look, which is probably why they cost $15 each. But that's a small price to pay for the feel of diamonds on your fingertips.
