We're buying: Lightbulb moment
A novelty idea that actually has a purpose for once, New Cid Cosmetics' latest launch is a collection of 24 nail polishes with a light in the brush – which means you can paint your toenails in front of the TV without putting the "big light" on.
We can't wait for: Check please
