With the H1N1 scare still fresh in our minds, I'm not sure many of us will be partaking in any activities involving saliva-swapping, like round after round of beer pong or a playful game of bobbing for apples. But since we're in the heart of apple harvesting season and Halloween is upon us, I figured there had to be another way to do the whole apple bobbing thing without transferring communicable disease. That's why I've gathered together different apple-colored polishes to pay tribute to this classic autumnal symbol. From red to trendy green to every finish in between, here are 15 polishes you might like.
Rihanna and her green nails are just a little bit late for St. Patrick's Day, but that's all right. The star got up close and personal with her young fans after performing a benefit concert last night at a Chicago club.
