Seriously, these things are making me GAG. Just in the same way that Bon Iver erotica gives me the major skeeves, these “duck nails,” as they’re being called, evoke a powerful internal response. They’re just so repulsive, so nauseating, so wrong. (More examples of duck nails after the jump.)

For those of you who have been up at night, tortured by the fact that neon nail polish is illegal but not knowing why, you’re not alone. After the original article in More left us with more questions than answers, the Daily Mail got on the case to figure out once and for all why truly neon lacquer can’t be produced in the United States.

Seems ridiculous, I know, but neon nail polish is illegal to produce in the United States. That doesn’t mean you’ll get ticketed for wearing it (if you get your grubby hands on some, that is). It just means that your neon polishes are going to come import-only. For now.

“Neon polish is actually illegal to produce in the US,” says Jan Arnold, co-founder and creative director of CND Colours. “So if you see a neon shade in the store, it’s imported—or your polish hue is just really bright, not a true neon, making it easier to pull off.” If you insist on being USA all the way, by all means, stick to bright non-neon shades like bumble bee yellow or bold orange reds.

7 Things I Can’t Help But Buy Even Though I Already Own Something Just Like It

I am and have always been a creature of habit. I think it’s a symptom of my OCD, but when I like something, I really  like it and I can’t get enough of it and things just like it. I once ate the same tuna fish sandwich (on a baguette with avocado and tomato) everyday for four months. It is a miracle I did not get mercury poisoning. 

This obsessive nature applies to my shopping habits. Once something becomes my thing, I am drawn to nothing but that thing for months, weeks, years on end. A newer version of that thing is purchased with the justification that it’s different enough, shinier and just necessary. As a result, I have a lot of multiples. Here are seven things I cannot help but buy even though I already own something just like it.

That’s polish (as in nail), not Polish (as in from Poland). Although this fictional nail polish line is inspired by the best Polish treats NYC’s Russ & Daughters has to offer.  I think I’ll do Lox & Load on my toes and Babka Streisand on my fingers. Also, there needs to be a color inspired by pickled herring. The skin has such a nice shimmer to it. [Lilit Marcus]

I love painting my nails. Removing my nail polish? Not so much. I hate the feeling of defeat as I scrub off a once-pristine manicure, and I really, really hate the gross chemical smell of most nail polish removers. That’s where Ciate’s white chocolate nail polish remover comes in. Yep, you read that right: it’s white chocolate-scented, enriched with vitamin E to nourish your skin, and easily removes caked-on polish. And if all that wasn’t enough, the bottle is freakin’ adorable. [$18, Beauty Bay]
