Q: Can I paint my nails on an airplane?

A: No. While it is not technically illegal to paint your nails on an airplane, travelers must abide by the rules and regulations of both the FAA and the airline company. Most airlines discourage the use of nail polish aboard their planes and will request a user to stop using the product for the comfort of other passengers. The notable odor, flammable ingredients and the potential to stain clothing or areas of the airplane cabin are good reasons to remain courteous to others.

Q: Should I store my nail polish or nail strips in the refrigerator?

A: No. It is reported that not only may your traditional liquid nail polish crystalize in the refrigerator, but it may slow the over-thickening of the thickening agents in your nail polish. Some reports state that refrigeration may slow down the discoloration that happens as liquid nail polish ages. It is recommended that if you DO store your liquid nail polish in the refrigerator, you remove it and bring it to room temperature before opening. Opening nail polish that is chilled may cause the water condensation to affect the quality.
