The Russians are Coming
Using CND's liquids and powders for a base, Russian master nail technician Nadejda Pchelina spent two months creating a set of 10 opulent medals, which took first place in the 3-D design competition at the Moscow Nail Expo. When Baby Phat's Kimora Lee Simmons found out about them—her fall/winter 2007 show just happened to have a Russian theme—she flipped her babushka and asked CND's Team Red to create 40 badges for models to wear on their thumbs or forefingers. Working around the clock, Team Red incorporated rich metallic finishes, sparkling gems and tiny, hand-painted portraits into their tiny treasures. —M.D.
Makeup guru Napoleon Perdis put the finishing touches on Hollywood's hottest celebrities, including Ugly Betty's Emmy nominee America Ferrera, at the Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards in September. To achieve complexion perfection, he applied his Camera Finish Powder and touched up her pout with Gloss Patrol. —M.D.

FarmHouse Fresh Fine Foot Scrubs are a treat for your feet, but your nose will appreciate them, too. The scrubs are available in three mouthwatering, warm and comforting fragrances—Sweet Cream, Whipped Honey and Early Apple—and packaged in jars with lids reminiscent of old-fashioned, hand-packed jams and jellies. Each is made with finely grained sea salts and rice bran oil, which is rich in vitamin E to deliver moisture. Try them on the hands, elbows and knees, too. 888/773-9626 —C.W.
