Bad news, ladies! If you’re planning to get a manicure before voting, you may have to hold it off until at least a few days after you vote.
The Election Commission (EC) has advised voters not to get their nails done before poling day, as their fingernail will be gained with the indelible ink.
EC deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Omar said: “It is simply unavoidable. So, I would advise against getting that RM200 manicure this election period, as you won’t be able to rub the ink off your nail polish”.
He added that voters should be proud to wear a mark on their finger showing that they have exercised their democratic right to vote. The ink will also remain on the finger for up to five days, and could not be rub off using any substance, including nail polish remover.
The indelible ink will be available in two colours, which would be kept secret until polling day. So please hold off your manicures until a few days after you vote. If you want groomed nails, just file and clip them neatly!
