Wearning Nail Polish in Public!!!

It's a crime in Iran!
The Iranian morality court has fined a woman $224 for the immoral act of wearing nail polish in public on “four and a half” of her fingers. She also was ordered to pay an additional $250 each for three other offenses – wearing a short jacket, wearing it in bright red and green colors, and wearing make-up.

The fine for nail polish was calculated at the rate of $50 per finger. She also must pay between $500 and $1,500 for her hair being toned in a light color, and $180 for wearing glasses over her hair. The court did not order that she be lashed, a frequent punishment in Islamic law.

The report of the fine and a picture of the guilty woman’s identification card were provided by the Iran Focus web site, which said that the woman was arrested by the “Guidance Patrol” near a commercial complex.

Iran recently has stiffened its control over public conduct among women, and police have issued warnings to 62,000 women for being improperly veiled in the province of Qom, the center of Iran’s Shiite clerics.

An Iranian newspaper quoted police chief Colonel Mehdi Khorasani as saying that his officers confiscated approximately 100 vehicles carrying women who were improperly dressed, noting that "encouraging such relaxations are among the objectives of the enemy."
