Question by AngelicaT: What are the harmful chemicals in some nail polishes (such as Essie) that can cause cancer and birth defects?
I really like the nail polish brand called Essie, but when I went to get some at Ulta, it had a sign that said it contained a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects. I was wondering what those chemical/s are and if they still exist in Essie nail polishes. Thank you!

just as long as you don’t eat the nail polish or inject it into your blood stream, I think you will be okay. However, all nail polishes are chock full of dangerous chemicals- so if your worried, maybe you shouldn’t use nail polishes.
