WILLIAMSBURG — This thief really polished off the inventory.

Somebody took about 1,200 bottles of nail polish from Williamsburg salon Nail It at 209 Bedford Ave., making it the second local salon in the last month to have hundreds of dollars worth of nail polish disappear overnight.

On March 20 an employee arrived at Nail It sometime after noon to find 1,200 bottles of nail polish — worth about $7,500 — gone, police said.

The burglar had used the basement door to get into the building, police said.

A similar incident occurred Feb. 22 when 400 bottles of relatively new gel nail polish were taken from Nails and Spa 4U at 220 Leonard St., according to police and employees.

An employee at Nail It confirmed that nail polish had been stolen but would not comment further.

Police are investigating the incident.

Other notable incidents in the 94th precinct include:

► A man was robbed at gunpoint of his iPhone while walking on North Sixth Street, police said.

The victim, 37, was walking west on North Sixth Street near Roebling Street on March 20 around 3 a.m. when a man approached him and asked for directions to The Bronx, police said.

The man then displayed a firearm and demanded that the victim hand his wallet and iPhone over, police said. He then struck the victim in the face with the gun, cutting the victim's lower lip.

► A man who parked on North 12th Street returned to his car to find nearly $2,000 worth of property gone from inside, police said.

The 26-year-old man parked on North 12th Street near Kent Avenue on Friday, March 20 at 11 p.m., police said.

He returned at 3 a.m. to find the rear passenger side window broken. About $1,950 worth of property was gone, including a Dell laptop, a scanner, a printer and a bag, police said.

No one has been arrested for the incident.
