Re: HELP - Polish Causing my Nails to Peel - WHY?
The only things that will wick the natural oils and moisture from the nails is having your hands in water a lot, using househiold cleaning solutions without wearing protective gloves, using strong solvents on the nail plate or having a reaction to the Formaldehyde, Formalin or Toluene in the nail polish.
I would suggest going to Sally Beauty Supply and purchasing a 3-way buffer. Buff the surface of the nails with the black side to remove the roughness, the white side to refine and the grey side to high shine. Doing this will help to remove the peeling and to seal the surface nail plate layer.
Keep them short until all the peeling has grown off the free edge. You can buff them to a high shine as needed, but do not use the black side too often. Just use the white and grey sides to keep them shiney. Keep using your Solar Oil and even apply it under the free edge.
FYI: Formaldehyde is a preservative that will wick the natural oils and moisture from the nail plate, leaving it somewhat dried out. Also, using non-acetone polish remover is not a good idea. It isn't strong enough to quickly remove the polish and since it takes longer, the chemicals remain on your nail plate longer and can dry it out even more than regular nail polish remover. I never recommend the use of non-acetone removers for natural nails or artificial nails.
