There's a whole side to nail polish that most of us aren't aware of, and it's an extremely dark one.
Most nail polish brands have toxic chemicals in them with massive side effects when used over time. One such ingredient is formaldehyde - you know, the chemical they use to preserve dead bodies. It is used in several lacquers because it has a hardening effect and continual exposure can lead to poisoning, thyroid dysfunction, breathing problems and asthma.
