Women have been decorating their fingernails for centuries. In the early years, the perfect look was often created with the aid of natural oils, powders, vegetable dyes and creams. Those items were typically rubbed into the fingernails until the user was happy with the resulting color. However, that all changed in the 1900s. By the time 1917 rolled around, commercially made nail polishes started to hit the market.
Once it did, nail polish manufacturers started playing around with various ingredients to create an array of colors. As such, the ingredients used in the production of commercial nail polishes varied by brand. That trend continues to this day. It’s also the main reason why it is always a great idea to read what’s in each bottle of nail polish. When doing so, you may be surprised at what you find.
Depending on the brand, you could run across ingredients that are also used to embalm the dead (formaldehyde), paint cars and light fireworks (nitrocellulose). Other items often found in some nail polishes are plasticizers, nylon, resins, adhesive polymers and manmade dyes.
