Nail polish argument leads to salon brawl between manicurist and customer

LANCASTER, Calif. -- One person was arrested after an alleged nail polish dispute led to a fist fight between the owner of a California nail salon and a customer.

According to KTLA, owner Kathy Nguyen apparently refused to paint the nails of the customer's 1-year-old daughter due to her age.

Nguyen tells KTLA that when she refused Tawana Davis' request, Davis hurled two nail polishes off the shelf and started painting the girl's nails herself.

Nguyen claims that she was attacked when she tried to take back the polish, but Davis tells a completely different story.

Davis claims she brought her own polish to the salon and was attacked while she was holding her daughter.

“When she hit me with my daughter in my hand, I felt like as long as she was still standing, me and my daughter were in danger,” Davis told KTLA.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies came to the store after the owner hit a silent panic button and called 911.

Davis was arrested on suspicion of robbery and later released from jail after posting bond.

Nguyen suffered an eye injury and had some of her hair pulled out, according to KTLA.

Davis tells KTLA she is planning to file a lawsuit because her daughter was traumatized by the incident.  She also wants the charges against her dropped.
