why does nail polish remover have an expiration date?
possibly for the same reason bottled water has an expiration date?
In the struggle
so that you don't drink it once it goes bad?
Rock Island, IL
have you ever drank expired nail polish? gross!!!
So you'll go buy more when really it doesn't expire :P
so you know how long you have to chug it, duh!
Because after it expires it converts to whole toe remove
thats a good question, doesnt rubbing alchohol also expire as well?
you'll only catch a buzz for so long after its freshnes is gone ; )
So you'll know when it isn't safe to drink, silly.
that's the date the nail polish company runs out of money, so you can fill up their bank account :)
after that date it naturally ages into something else. Trade secret: that's where Zima comes from
You'd wanna know,wouldn't you!
Because it's a chemical compound and will decompose after a certain amount of time.
Village Hidden in White Plains
I dunno but that crap STINKS!! I hate the smell. >< I used to get dragged to nail salons by my mom alot when I was younger.
Eventually doesn't have the same sniffable effectiveness QT : why does nail polish remover have an expiration date?
after that it becomes drinkable
The only way you can tell is if you drink some. If you end up going blind, then the nail polish remover is still good.
You can use it forever, but it's only edible until that date.
The Southwest Desert
cause the paint gets all hard......like me.....lol
its an alcohol/acid so my guess is #Botulism ?
after 2 months it turns to battery acid..... no one really knows...why do 7-11 have locks on their doors
why does sterile water have an expiration date?
IT CAUSE IT ORGANIC CHEMICAL COMPOUND AND BREAKDOWN (ALL CHEMICALS HAVE HALF LIFE)... WHAT... BANNER A SCIENTIST
because after it expires it makes ur nails even more colorful!
cuz it tastes like shit when it goes bad.
it turns into nail polish after said date
at that point it refuses to remove any more nail polish, regardless of how much you plea...
have you ever tried drinking expired nail polish remover? So gross...
it melts off your fingertips after a long enough period of time
After the expiration it just completely removes the nail. They don't play around.
Fort Worth, Texas
don't think of it as an expiration date, but more of a "zombie napalm" readiness/activation date.
how would you know if it expired? Would it smell bad?
Coruscant/Your moms house
. Because it wont get you high anymore after that date if you huff it.
OBX North Carolina
To make the idiots out there buy more when it goes out of date. Duh #economybooster
sure you've already heard, but acetone (main ingredient) has high evaporation rate. Older the remover, the less potent it is.
On the Interwebs
Because after said date you not only get high from breathing in the fumes but you risk stroking out as well
After finger nail polish expires, it turns into cheap vodka.
Just the 'polish' part expires. Then it becomes a nail remover. Easy on that!
Jersey City, NJ
after a certain date its no longer top quality huffing material?
so you buy it more frequently, or maybe I'm just being cynical.
Dunno. Acetone is generally shelf stable. Maybe some fragrance/color crud put in there? Or they want you to buy more?
cause the active ingredient has a self life
Sacramento Region, CA
when it turns, it becomes nail remover!
San Diego, CA
Probably still safe but less effective. Some chemicals get stronger with age. Hate to dissolve those pretty little fingers.
So you know when not to drink it DUH !
Los Angeles, CA
because it can only do so much haha
Because after the expire date, it becomes nail remover.
New York CIty
maybe that's when it dries out? How bout why does 711 have locks on their doors if they never close?
the chemicals break down - I know as I had 2nd degree burns on my fingertips from using 3 year old products by mistake
