Invert nParticles normals?

Hi. I used nParticles to create some animated bubbles in glass of water. As I know, to do a correct render, I need to invert normals of particles inside, but HOW?
And one more question, how can I convert nParticles DIRECTLY to spheres, without some blob effects?

Id recommend instancing sphere geo onto your nParticles.
Use the radius to drive scale and you can tweak normals to your hearts content.
Is this possible for you?
Or has it already been ruled out?

Thanx, animatedfox! Its exactly what I needed.
