Most nail polishes contain formaldehyde,
a carcinogenic chemical best known for preserving cadavers.
On a toenail,
the formaldehyde dries and damages the nail.
Polish remover has acetone,
which is popular for removing adhesives and paint.
Also damaging for the nail.
This damage can leave the toenail susceptible to fungus infections.
When your polish comes off you likely noticed that your nails are dry,
people often come into the office concerned that it`s fungus.
it`s just damage from the polish.
It`s time to take a vacation.
When you wear closed shoes,
try not wearing polish to give your nails a chance to recover.
That`s right...no polish.
Just a base coat?
Well clear polish is still just as damaging.
It`s not the color that does it,
it`s the polish itself.
No matter what your pedicurist tells you,
whether it contains essential vitamins,
whether it`s hypoallergenic,
it doesn`t matter...it`s still nail polish.
