I used Nail Polish containing dibutyl phthalate!! Is this very bad for baby??

I used nail polish last night and I just found out today it was dibutyl phthalate in it. This is an ingredient that is warned about and even banned in some states. I'm so disgusted and worried!! I got a stuffy nose all night and my partner's eye is all puffy today. Does this pose risk for baby? I only used it once and do not plan using it again.

  • Just don't use it again, or at least use it only outside. There are non-toxic nail polishes; they run about $18 a bottle.
