Nail Polish?

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?

I just found out that Wed N Wild nail polish is all gluten free. Just thought I'd share! :)

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

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.

Dear Jessica,

I'm writing to you from Brucci Ltd.

We are located in New York.

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.

Should you have any further questions, feel free to contact me.

Thank You!

DONNA SCHIAVONE

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.

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
