Kiesque Liquid Palisade Peel-Off Nail Polish Barrier

Let me begin by saying that I want to love this product. Truly, I do. It is ingenious. Available at retailers like Beauty.com and Amazon, Liquid Palisade is intended to work like painter's tape for manis. You simply paint it around your nails, apply polish, and peel off. You are left with salon-worthy perfection. No joke.
So what's my problem, you ask? In one word: packaging. Liquid Palisade is a packaging disaster. After 3 uses, the tube opening becomes congealed with the product. I bought it twice and I tried hard the second time to keep the opening clear, going to so far as to use safety pins to do so. Unfortunately, sooner rather than later, the opening becomes clogged. The tiny applicator brush gets manhandled and destroyed by inserting in and out of the clogged opening, thus rendering more than 3/4 of the bottle useless. At $22/.35 fl oz, I really need to get my money's worth. So thanks, but no thanks, Kiesque. Here's hoping you get this straightened out, because the product actually works like a charm when its not foiled by its own packaging.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Archives: Kunal Nayyar Weds Neha Kapur

TV's lovably neurotic astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrapali (aka Kunal N) married former Miss India Neha Kapur in a lavish round of ceremonies in Delhi back in December. Thankfully the real life Kunal doesn't require booze to talk to women - otherwise these two would be headed for a very silent or very drunk married life. Cheers to the happy couple. Here are a couple of snaps from Neha's mehendi ceremony and from their Big Fat Indian wedding reception. I hear it was a small, family affair with only about 1,000 people in attendance. Check out a slideshow of their nuptials here.

Coming to a Screen Near You: Freida Pinto.

So not only is this lass charming fashion houses the world over, Freida is racking up the film offers! We already know Freida's been tapped for Woody Allen's next project. Now, The Sun is breaking news that Freida has been asked to audition for the next Bond film which is reportedly likely to be directed by none other than Danny Boyle. I may be biased, but I think fab Freida would make one fierce Bond Girl! This is one rumor I hope comes to fruition. Daniel Craig + Freida Pinto = must-see Bond flick.
