With the recession showing no signs of slowing down, it's going to be a while until buying expensive baubles is back in style. But that doesn't mean you have to give up the glamour. WWD reports that nail-polish brand Essie is teaming up with luxe jewelry designer Judith Ripka for a small color collection. The three colors ($15 each), due in stores this August, are infused with diamond dust for a glittering sheen. Better yet, a few very lucky women will get an amazing gift with purchase: a diamond, a sapphire, and an emerald will be hidden in three bottles of polish. (Manicure guru Essie Weingarten says that the polish will come off with regular remover.) Sounds like a gem of a surprise to me.
