As if celebs don’t already have it good enough, at this year’s Grammys, stars will receive manicures using 24K gold polish. Red Carpet Manicure, the first line of at-home gel polish, has developed an exceedingly precious set of lacquers just for the occasion: Amor 24. The colors, with cheeky names like I Can’t Believe It, My Thank You Speech, Award Winning, and It’s Champagne Night, all contain a healthy dose of real 24K gold in their formulas.

Christina Aguilera put in a blockbuster performance at last night’s Grammys but I couldn’t help but be distracted by her spidery mascara. While dramatic, the look is decidedly Morticia Adams. (Could the clumpy lashes obscuring her vision been the reason for her slip?) But there are easy ways to get the oomph without the ‘ack!’
First step: Restraint. Instead of piling on the formula, pick an extra-dark mascara that will stand out, and apply two — max three — coats.
Next: Apply in a back-and-forth motion from the base of your lashes to the tips. This will distribute the formula evenly and give you an extra volume-y fringe.
Finally: Clean up! Separate any clumps. We don’t advise the old safety pin trick — instead, simply use a clean lash wand or a special lash comb and gently brush out any clumps.
