Toe nail lifting with polish....

Hi. For the past few years, whenever I use nail polish on my toes (which I only do in the summer), within as little as a week, my toe nails begin to lift from the top down. It's usually only my big toes. There is no debris, no yellowing, no pain. But, it's obviously wrong!!! I asked my dermatologist about it and she said it wasn't a fungus (though she didn't culture it) and suggested I was allergic to nail polish. Really? There is no rash, no itching, just lifting. What could be going on here? Any help or suggestions you could give would be most helpful..... I do like my toes to look pretty in summer sandals, and right now, that's just not possible.
