Could you be allergic to the ingredients in nail polish? An allergic reaction on your skin may be the result of exposure to foreign chemicals and ingredients found in many different products and plants, including:
- Dye for your hair, clothing, leather, furs
- Nail care products, cosmetics, sunscreen
- Fragrances, perfumes
- Rubber compounds
- Topical medications
- Poison ivy, other plants
- Detergents, cleaning products
- Metals, especially nickel
If you think it's your nailpolish or nail care products, don't fret. Not all brands use the same ingredients so first try switching nail polish brands before signing off on nail polish forever.
