Nail Polish Is the New Lipstick: "Lipstick Index" was a term coined to show how sales of smaller luxury items rise in economic depressions; however, the sales of actual lipstick have been down for three years while nail polish is on a quick rise (as you can probably tell by the copious amount of press given to nails these days). {Jezbel}
