There's more than one way to take home the gold on Grammy night. Yeah, some people (hopefully Adele) will be going home with trophies, but thanks to Red Carpet Manicure plenty of them will take home actual gold (24 karats of it) on their hands. Specifically, their fingernails.
RCM, the first at-home gel manicure company, has created a special polish called Amor 24, and they'll be camping out in the Grammy gifting lounge (a place where celebrities get free stuff in exchange for standing around and getting their picture taken with swag) to dole out their gold manis.
But the whole 24-karat gold factor almost pales in comparison to the color names: "I Can't Believe It," "My Thank You Speech," "Award Winning" and "It's a Champagne Night," possibly because "Jesus Helped Me Win This Award" was already taken. What happens if you're not a celebrity? RCM is now available at Duane Reade stores, so stock up.
