I just found out that the nail polish I've been using from Nicka K isn't gluten free. Shoot.

Does anyone know of a gluten free nail polish that's easy to find?

Jessica, just curious to know what reactions you have to nail polish that is not gluten-free. I have my nails done and use OPI nail polish...no clue as to whether it's gluten-free or not.

I'm actually not sure if I had a reaction at all. I've been extremely tired lately, though that may be from overwork/stress (I very much need a vacation). Other than that I feel fine.

Part of the reason why I wear nail polish is because I have a bad habit of picking at my nails and sometimes biting them, but I don't when I wear polish because I don't want to mess up how nice it looks. I don't have DH, and the only instances when I've had nail-to-mouth contact is when I've eaten with my hands and flossed.

But I took off the polish last night, and I'm officially giving away that bottle. Better safe than sorry, right?

PS I emailed OPI last night. I'll post their response. :)

I'll be interested to hear the response from OPI. Since I've been having my nails done for years with acrylic overlays and the salon I go to uses OPI polish, I really don't have any reason to feel that I have a problem with it...although that doesn't mean it would work for everyone.

Just received a response! So nice that they were so quick and specific! :)

The following OPI products contain hydrolyzed wheat and/or oat protein, which may have traces of gluten. These products should definitely be avoided by anyone with gluten sensitivity:

Acrylic Nail Base Coat

Feet

Thanks, Jessica! Since I have acrylic overlays, no base coat is used. My nail polish is called "Nail Lacquer" and I have no idea what the top coat is. Since I have no problem with it, I'll not be concerned about it.

Message from Sally Hansen:

Dear Jessica:

Thank you for E-mailing us regarding our Sally Hansen Portfolio. We are always pleased to hear from our consumers and we appreciate your enthusiasm for our products.

As required by law, each product's package, insert or hang-tag exhibits a complete list of its ingredients. If the words "gluten," "wheat", "barley", "rye", or "oat" are absent from that ingredient listing, then the product was not formulated to include gluten. For your convenience, a list of specific cosmetics ingredients derived from these grain sources is enclosed.

We hope this information is helpful and invite you to contact our Consumer Affairs Department with any additional questions. It is always our pleasure to assist you.

They sent me a list of common cosmetic ingredients that are derived from gluten, but I can't figure out a way to copy/paste it to the forum. If anyone would like the list, send me a message with your email, and I'll be happy to email it to you. B)

I don't know if this has anything to do with anything, but when I was a teenager I started getting terrible pinkeye-type symptoms. My eyes grew so red and sore and crusty I couldn't even open them in the morning. The doctor said I was probably allergic to nail polish. (I think he meant the fumes while putting it in.) I stopped using it and have never had trouble since.

Here's one more! This is from a company with inexpensive products that I found at drug stores in NY.

I'm writing to you from Brucci Ltd.

Your e-mail was forwarded to me from our distributor in So. Africa.

In regards to your question of gluten, I'm pleased to say the none of our polish contains gluten, however, the treatment called MIRACLE NAIL HARDENER does.

JessicaNYC, Thanks so much for posting this information.

My kids and I are extremely sensitive to gluten and I am continually trying to think of ways that we might be getting gluten - I hadn't yet thought of nail polish, but I am going to get rid of ours in case that could be a problem.

Some Chanel nail polishes are gluten free, you should read the ingredient composition. Also Dior nail polishes are gluten-free.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
