Even though women constantly use nail polish and are generally unaware of its effects on health, a recent study showed that many of the most popular nail polish brands in America are much more harmful than anyone imagined.
According to Daily Mail:
“Nail salon workers pay a huge price in the form of their health. Exposure to nail care products with harmful chemicals can result in a number of health effects, ranging from skin irritations, eye injuries and allergic reactions.
They also have thinking and memory problems, neurological symptoms, nausea, respiratory problems, cancer and uncontrollable muscle contractions to impaired reproductive and development processes.
Research studies have documented acute health effects in these workers. These include headaches, breathing problems, and skin irritations, commonly associated with overexposure to solvents used in these products. “
