American Apparel Sues After Nail Polish Explodes

4th NE Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

From Gothamiat

American Apparel is on the other side of the lawsuit for once, claiming that a Long Island nail polish maker needs to pony up $5 million! (That's one way to get out of debt.) According to the NY Post, the Forsythe Cosmetic Group "ruined the launch of its nail polish line by using defective bottles that began 'exploding' almost immediately after going on sale." Sound fun! Except no one saw the potential in polish-splattered deep v-necks, and there may actually be hazardous materials in the polish. Now the cosmetic group is being sued for fraud, product liability, and breach of contract. Forsyth says this is all "a suspense-novel-worthy chain of melodramatic alleged events."
