Less than a month after one thief couldn't decide on a manicure color and took off with 400 bottles, Williamsburg's nail salons have been pummeled by yet another burglary: DNAinfo reports that someone stole 1,200 bottles (worth about $7,500!) from Nail It at 209 Bedford Avenue last week.

What could possibly be causing this string of Williamsburg nail polish thieveries—a neighborhood-wide crime ring of super bored teens? A tag-like chain in which once your salon has been burgled, you've got to burgle someone else? Fodder for the best sleepover of all time? Perhaps we'll find out in the three-quel.
