Is anyone else weirded out that gluten-free nail polish is a thing?!?  It’s really strange to me that you’re actually worried about ingesting your nail polish.  I wear nail polish almost all the time and I’ve never noticed it chipping and getting into my food.  And I would think that it’s such a trace amount that it wouldn’t matter.

LOL I love how products market themselves as “pregnancy safe,” implying that regular nail polish is not pregnancy safe and needlessly freaking women out.

Wait… there’s a risk of accidental nail polish eating? OH GEEZE, I really HAVE heard it all now!

Kayla0416:  I have taken several college-level cooking courses (working toward a diploma).  The instructors do not allow any of the students to wear nail polish as it does, in fact, chip and get into food.  Maybe not a huge concern for people, but from a hygiene perspecting, it matters.

What’s with all the snark? If you don’t care about the nail polish, don’t comment.  Why be rude to the OP?

BeeBlake:  That’s understandable because cooking is very hands-on. But if you’re simply eating with a fork and knife, I don’t see how your nail polish will fleck off and get into your food. Unless you’re picking at it over your plate.

kmark2688:  But some people actually make their own food, not just eat it with a knife and fork.  

And despite the fact that you’ve never noticed that your polish flecks off into your food, the OP described her experience as someone with (I’m guessing) Celiac’s disease and has experienced it and gotten sick over it. 

Again, I’m just wondering why the need for such snark in response to the OP’s post…she was just trying to be helpful and the wolves came out.

BeeBlake:  there are tons of nail polishes that are “pregnancy safe”. Essie, OPI, Sally Hansen, Sinful Colors are just a few I know off the top of my head. Tell your friends they can find out if polish is safe by looking to see if they’re “3-Free”.

loveinfinitely:  Your experience is exactly why there are lots of companies making gluten-free make-up these days. 

I have two close family members with Celiac’s disease and every exposure or cross-contamination can result in them getting really sick.  Some of the posters on here obviously don’t have to worry about this, which is probably the reason for the snark remarks.
