Flying polishes

CstM here for a short interlude.

A friend of mine in the nail polish community has started up an online petition, collecting signatures for the cause of getting the Civil Aviation Authorities to review their flight restrictions on nail polish.

Nail polish has been deemed a hazardous material thus you can’t send it out of the UK using Royal Mail. Inside the UK you can max send 3 polishes in a parcel and you have to get through a lot of faff of putting a huge sticker on it proclaiming that it contains nail polish. This is what she’ll try to get changed or at least get answers to why that is. I for one would be a bit more nervous of my “girl cave” that’s filled with bottles of nail polish, if they can suddenly combust or otherwise kill me.

So if you have the time and feel like supporting this endeavour you can sign the petition Here and you can also read more about the whole thing plus the questions that will be asked of the Civil Aviation Authority.

    • It does say a professional nail technician is much more at risk than regular nail polish users.
      And I haven’t yet created the habit of sniffing my polishes or leaving all the bottles unscrewed. I just look at the pretty colours and paint my nails.

      And surely the pilot is locked inside the cockpit not in the cargo hold getting a wheez of sparkly blue.

      But to be honest I have always wanted a hazmat suit. You know just because.
