Most nail polishes contain damaging chemicals, such as formaldehyde and toluene. Nail polish remover contains acetone. All of these damage the toenails and cause the white streaking that many women experience when removing their polish. This damage weakens the toenails and make them more susceptible to developing a fungus infection.
There are alternatives to harmful nail polish. We carry Dr.'s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish which does not contain the harmful chemicals that regular nail polish tends to have; instead it is formulated with vitamins and an all natural antifungal agent to nourish the nails.
