NAIL POLISH EXPLOSION
As if American Apparel didn’t cause enough of a stir with their news-making CEO and their extremely sexy advertisements – and now it seems their making even more explosions in the fashion world – this time quite literally.
It seems several of the brands nail polishes had a little… um… safety issue on the store shelves, as in they were actually exploding on the shelves. American Apparel is suing Forsythe Cosmetic Group, who manufactured the nail polish for both the defective merchandise and for allegedly scamming “tens of thousands of dollars” upon discovering that American Apparel had chosen a new supplier. American Apparel has since pulled the nail polish from the shelves.
“We wish no ill will toward this fellow American manufacturer, but need to seek a fair and accountable solution to this incident,” American Apparel spokesman Ryan Holiday told the New York Post. Forsythe, sounding oddly like Dave Eggers, called the allegations “a suspense-novel-worthy chain of melodramatic alleged events.” Considering American Apparel’s serious financial woes, we’re guessing the company’s lawyers are hungry for a court win.
