Keep your distance

I use nail polish and polish remover in the bathroom with the exhaust fan on and the window open or preferably both. Keep products at arm's length not under your nose. The best is to have a manicure and pedicure at a nail salon. Test the environment first with your nose as many do not have the proper ventilation. If you smell chemicals when you walk in, walk out. I tell the owner why I am leaving. I have seen nail salons change location because the premises did not have the proper ventilation and they knew that they were losing business because of it. The worst are procedures are acrylic and gel nails. Avoid these if you have a sensitivity. Even good ventilation and keeping an arm's length will not be far enough away from the toxic odours. Shellac is not great but still best to be avoided if you are sensitive.
