    A woman who was detained after getting into an argument with a Southwest Airlines flight attendant over polishing her fingernails is demanding to know why.
    Jeanie Daniels told KTRK-TV Channel 13 in Houston that she was painting her nails in her seat on Flight 1536 from California to Houston's Hobby Airport on Sunday, Feb. 26, when a flight attendant asked her to stop because of the smell.

    Fingernails, so I guess the objectionable odor was the nail polish. If it had been toenails, the issue could have been the smell of her feet.

    Have to say the whole story sounds bogus to me. Detained for "profane language" not even in the presence of the arresting officers? Fishy.

    Although I absolutely detest the smell of nail polish, when are they going to start detaining the passengers who smell bad and forcing them to shower?

    In relation to the story, I wonder if any passengers asked her to put it away before the flight attendants had to get involved. If I saw nail polish coming out next to me, I would say something before it was even opened.

    Wow, painting your nails on an airplane is obnoxious. I don't even know how she thought that would be acceptable. Probably not worthy of 10 hours of "detainment," but I guess that's what happens.

    This lady is a complete dumbass. She should have been fined for her stupidy and sent to a class on manners/ how to be considerate of others.

    I would have definitely asked her to put it away the second I saw it, I just can't believe anyone would think this was even marginally appropriate. Time and a place!

    I seem to remember that nail polish is highly flammable. Maybe not as flammable as nail polish remover, but flammable. Therefore, she should not have had it open.

    They should also making it mandatory for TSA agents to shower often. Last week I had an encounter with a smelly TSA agent at the BOS airport.

    Yes, the smell of nail polish is unbearable/horrible and I am a female, so yes that woman had no consideration for others.

    I love it when some douche sitting next to me / near me starts CLIPPING their nails. Thanks for leaving dead human tissue all over a public conveyance scumbag!

    Since the flight was from California, I would have thought that she would have been in trouble for not posting the Prop 65 - "life is filled with hazardous substances" - warnings around her seat since you see them on all the CA airport jetways to the planes. :)

    She shouldn't have been allowed to have fingernail polish on the plane to begin with because it is flammable.
