An unemployed 51-year-old man yesterday denied stealing red nail varnish from a cosmetics store last Saturday, saying the bottle was in his possession when he entered the shop. Lau Siu-wah was wearing pink polish on his long fingernails when he appeared at Kwun Tong Court over the alleged theft at Bonjour in Metro City Plaza, Tseung Kwan O. He denied stealing or forgetting to pay for the item. He is scheduled to face trial on May 27.
