Scientists at Cardno ChemRisk (lKopelovich et al., 2015) published a study titled "Screening-level human health risk assessment of toluene and dibutyl phthalate in nail lacquers". The purpose of the study is to estimate and evaluate potential exposure to the two chemicals from nail lacquer application. Three different scenarios were considered: an employee working at a nail salon, a patron at a nail salon, and a user applying nail polish in a home setting. Based on the results, it was concluded that exposures above regulatory limits are possible during routine use of nail products and that further research is needed to evaluate potential human health risks.
