Need Nail Polish Remover? Get Your I.D. Ready

Nail polish remover is a pretty important part of any manicure addict's life. You tire of your color after a few days, or that sick nail art you had planned just didn't quite turn out right. Or, you go by the tried-and-true method of painting your entire fingertip and then wiping off the excess after the fact. Whatever the reason, though, you'll need to bring your I.D. the next time you hit up your local CVS for an emergency fix — the chain will no longer sell nail polish remover to those under age 18. It's all meth's fault, as explained in this statement:

"Because acetone is an ingredient used in the illegal manufacture of methamphetamine, we recently implemented a policy that a valid ID must be presented to purchase acetone-containing products such as nail polish remover. Our policy also limits the sale of these products in conjunction with other methamphetamine precursors and is based on various regulations requiring retailers to record sales of acetone."

Also, now you're not allowed to buy more than two bottles of nail polish remover a day. No big deal, unless you're having a serious nail art party at your house, in which case you'll also need a variety of respiration gear and probably some plastic tarps. Which is, of course, equally suspicious. (StyleList)
