Watch yo’ back, Jason Bourne. If I were a super spy, I’d totally keep a bottle of Dolce & Gabbana Nail Lacquer ($20) with me to wield against my adversaries. The sleek bottle (lovin’ the embossed gold cap) doubles as a combination camera/GPS locator/flame thrower/Sonicare toothbrush!
But before I painted my nails with it last Sunday, I actually checked to see if my bottle of shimmery dark purple Midnight had any gadgets embedded on the D.L.
Comparable to Chanel and Dior
I think Midnight’s a regal, all eyes-on-you kinda color — a rich, shimmery purple that looks like royalty on fingertips and toes.
Like the third bowl of porridge in The Story of the Three Bears, the thickness is juuust right (not too thick or too thin), and the brilliant shine and opaque coverage (I’ve been using two coats) remind me of something Chanel or Dior would whip up.
As for durability, so far, so good. I’ve been wearing Midnight on top of Essie First Base Coat since Sunday and have yet to see any major chippage.

So You Think You Can Dance?
Are there any other So You Think You Can Dance? fans out there who caught last night’s episode??
I had to giggle when Evan got his N-A-S-T-Y on in the Janet Jackson routine.
That boy’s cute, but he’s so far from nasty it ain’t even funny. He tried, though, bless his heart.
Who’s your pick to win it all? I’m pulling for Brandon and Jeanine!
