An unnamed thief who totally understands your anxiety when faced with a wall of nail polish had a not-so-great reaction to the stress, stealing 400 bottles from a Williamsburg salon. DNAinfo reports that the suspect took about $1,300 worth of new gel polish from Nails and Spa 4U sometime between February 22nd and 23rd, and, for reasons far less relatable, also nabbed a laundry bag, a DVD player, and a security camera data chip.
