Can I Bring Nail Polish On An Airplane?

Written by Tara

Nail polish fumes, however, are toxic, which cannot be filtered through the recycled air system onboard the aircraft.

Liquid cosmetics include nail polish, moisturizers, eyeliner and foundation. When deciding which liquid cosmetics to carry, the TSA’s 3-1-1 liquid rule we explained above applies. Therefore, ensure your cosmetics are not more than 3.4 oz and all products must fit in a clear, plastic, resealable and quart-sized bag.

Generally Is nail polish allowed in checked baggage? According to TSA, you can take nail polish on a plane as long as it conforms to liquid rules. As a carry-on, the nail polish has to be less or equal to 3.4oz/100ml. In the checked luggage, there is no limit stated.
