Triphenyl Phosphate or TPHP. Click on article above for more info....  Futher studies need to be made, but, it is a heads up as far as the concern how chemicals mess up our hormones......

I just read where the test was done with women who had acrylic nails as well as their own nails, and there was little to no indication that the women with acrylics were affected.  I also read where some name brands like OPI, Essie, and Sally Hansen have TPHP.

Yes... there are brands that do not contain the chemical so it would be smart to check and see which ones they are.

You'll drive yourself crazy believing everything that comes out.  I don't think the little bit of nail polish I use is effecting my weight.

I only use Zoya  nail polish for my pedicures.  I take my own as salons rarely carry one of these good brands. 

 

They are one of the few *5-Free* brands out there.

Five being chemicals such as nasty as formadahyde.

 

Don't know off hand if this ingredient mentioned is one of them, though.  Could be why I have such wide feet.......
