Neon Nail Polish is Not Illegal, It's Just Not Legal (Do You Know Why The US Imports Its Fluorescent Lacquers?)

Neon Nail Polish is Not Illegal, It’s Just Not Legal (Do You Know Why The US Imports Its Fluorescent Lacquers?)

The US has a long history of importing some of its most cherished goods: beautiful models, fine fabrics…tea.  But, we were recently shocked to discover that America also imports all of its neon nail polishes!  A wild imagination would lead you to think that the astoundingly bright, and currently trending, nail colors contain some serious chemical ingredient that would have you riding higher than a Mariah-note.  But, apparently neon polishes aren’t ‘home-grown’ because they’ve never been registered with the FDA.  And we gather the costly registration must be more of a pain-in-the-pocket than the price to import them?  Needless to say, foreign relations just got way more important.

 

Fashion never fails to surprise us.
