Luminous nail polish

Also known as “nail paint.” Its main components are 70%-80% volatile solvents, 15% nitrocellulose, a small amount of oily solvents, camphor, titanium dioxide and oil-soluble pigments. The film formed by the luminous nail polish applied to the nail is firm and has a moderately colored luster to protect the nail and impart a beauty to the nail.

Main ingredients: long-lasting luminous powder, volatile solvent, nitrocellulose, oil, etc.
The composition of ordinary luminous nail polish generally consists of two types, one is solid component, mainly pigment, glittering substance, etc.; the other is liquid solvent component, mainly used acetone, ethyl acetate, phthalate , formaldehyde, etc. There are many types of pigments, including natural and artificial. The most widely used ones are of course artificial pigments, but many artificial pigments are toxic and may be harmful to humans. The well-known Sudan Red is a carcinogen. Harmful ingredients may also be mixed in natural pigments, but they can be purified to remove harmful ingredients, but the removal technique is quite difficult and costly and is generally not used by manufacturers.
The solvent components of ordinary luminous nail polish are basically toxic or harmful substances, which is not known to the general public. The most powerful of these should be phthalates, formaldehyde, followed by acetone, ethyl acetate and the like. Among the nighttime nail polish hazards, phthalates can interfere with normal hormonal balance, leading to serious reproductive damage and other health problems; both benzene and formaldehyde are carcinogenic. There are also reports that some of the ingredients in luminous nail polish may have an impact on the health of the fetus and therefore require a high degree of attention.
Other ingredients
In ordinary luminous nail polish, in order to achieve the purpose of quickly drying the luminous nail polish, a large amount of acetone and ethyl acetate components are added, and the two components are characterized by being highly volatile, so that the luminous nail polish can be quickly dried. However, acetone and ethyl acetate are dangerous chemicals, they are flammable and explosive, produce a dizzying irritating odor when volatilized, and stain indoor air (the volume of them will expand a thousand times after volatilization) in the long term. In the case of inhalation, it may cause harm to the nervous system and is also highly irritating to the mucous membrane. Exposure to such ingredients is even more dangerous if you have a baby at home. Another disadvantage of these organic solvents is that after repeated use on the nails, the nails will be discolored, brittle and white, resulting in “the nails are not anti-destroyed.” Therefore, some of the instructions for the use of luminous nail polishes wrote: “It is best to apply luminous nail polish in a ventilated room, otherwise it may cause dizziness…”, this is the truth.
