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.
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.
Generally Why is nail polish flammable? Nail polish is flammable because of the ingredient acetone – also known as dimethyl ketone or 2-propanone.
