Wow, scary. I’m really weird about nail polish, I do my nails like 3 times a week, and when I was teaching my students would even notice and comment about how my nails are always perfectly manicured and a different color. That being said, this has never happened to me. My nails are actually a little warped (wavy near the base of the nail bed) from all the polish/remover, and they’re sort of thin, but they’re not sensitive at all.

I’m glad the Sally Hansen products are helping you. Is there any chance you’re deficient in calcium or other nutrients that contribute to nail health? I take biotin and calcium supplements, so maybe that has protected my nails.

I don’t know, but nail polish definately cannot be good for anyone when you think about it. My nails always feel a bit like they are suffocating when I put it on, if you can see what I mean.

@FutureMrsV2016:  This happens to me when I continuously wear nail polish for awhile and then take a break from the polish. It doesn’t happen if I take the polish off and immediately put a new coat on. It’s something to do with your fingers under your nails not getting proper oxygen due to the nailpolish. Basically your fingers are suffocating a bit. The rush of air to your fingers can make them sensitive. I just wait for a day or so until they stop being sensitive before I put polish on again.

@FutureMrsV2016:  Oh I didn’t even think about acetone. I have also been using acetone-free removed for years. The one from Sally Beauty is still a very effective remover even without acetone, unlike some other brands. Hopefully that switch will help.
