Is nail polish safe?

When it comes to going for a manicure, it's probably a good idea to skip tips and acrylics because of the chemicals involved. Nail polish is believed to be safe if you want to add color during a mani/pedi but, if you're worried, many spas offer polishes that are toluene, formaldehyde and DBP (dibutyl phthalate) free.
