• Does nail polish weaken nails or protect them?

    I am finally kicking the nail-biting habit, and my nails have grown a few millimeters, i want to put a polish on but half of the people i ask say it will make them brittle and more likely to break, then others are saying it helps them grow, and protects them.

    Which is true?

      light nail polishes make them most likely to break. it protects them if u put a base. they are the weakest when u clean the polish off

      Well Iv’e heard a bunch of doctors say that nail polish is unhealthy and can cause cancer because of all the chemicals in it. Just keep your nails healthy by cleaning them and taking good care of them.

      Hope I helped(:

      Nail hardener protects your nails and strengthens them. But honestly, just file them, clean them and look after them, its better to go natural :)

      Nail Polish DO NOT damage or weaken your nails. Unless you left them on for a long period of time, say about 3 weeks or longer, then they’ll probably stain your nails BUT, they DO NOT damage it. It also depends on which brands of polish you use. Cheap polish WILL stain the nail in a week or so. I prefer OPI or China Glaze polishes. Make sure you prep. your nails before polishing them. I’ll repeat agian, polish DO NOT damage your nails. Just dont keep them on too long thats all.
