You Never Want These 9 Ingredients in Your Nail Polish ...


Nail polish is one of my favorite cosmetics. I rarely go without some color on my fingers and toes. Despite being a nail polish fiend, I know that some ingredients are better avoided and that wearing polish all the time isn’t good for your nails. If you’re like and are trying to take better care of your nails without having to give up polish, shop for bottles that don’t contain these nasty ingredients.

1. Formaldehyde

This is one of the worst ingredients ever. It’s used to preserve the dead so you know it’s strong. It’s used to help the polish stick to your nails when you brush it on. However, it is considered a carcinogen, which means it may be linked to the development of certain types of cancer. It might also cause skin and nose irritation when used.
