Nail polish or nail varnish is a lacquer that is applied to the nails of both the fingers and toes, usually cosmetically, but also as protection for the nails. The act of simply polishing the nails without applying a chemical layer afterwards is called nail buffing.
Exposure of pregnant rats and rabbits to systemic amorolfine (≥ 10 mg/kg/day orally) resulted in increased resorptions (embryotoxicity). The significance of these findings to human embryotoxicity is not known. There are no data on the use of amorolfine in pregnant women.
