REMOVE YOUR NAIL POLISH!!! That seems to be the lesson learned in this story from

Nail polish helps nab robbery suspect
A woman suspected of robbing a bank in Chelsea yesterday eluded police for a half-hour before being identified by her flashy orange fingernails, police said. The woman entered Sovereign Bank on Everett Avenue at 9:45 a.m. and handed a note to the teller demanding money, according to police. The teller complied and the suspect fled with a reported $450, police said. A construction worker working nearby saw the suspect, wrote down her license plate number, and gave it to Chelsea police. Witnesses inside the bank told police that the suspect was wearing bright burnt orange fingernail polish. Within minutes of talking to witnesses, police located the vehicle and arrested Margaret Christie, 53.

Yeah, it wasn’t because they had her license plate number or even footage from the bank’s security cameras. No no no, it’s all thanks to her orange nails that this criminal was finally brought to justice. What a kooky spin to put on the story. Just had to share!
