Nail polish (also known as nail varnish or nail enamel) is a lacquer that may beautify and protect the human fingernail or toenail plates. The recipe has been tweaked several times to improve the ornamental effects and prevent cracking and peeling. Nail polish is made up of an organic polymer and various additional ingredients that give it its color and texture. Nail paints are available in a variety of colors and play an important role in manicures and pedicures.

Nail polish has been around since 3000 BCE in China. During the Zhou dynasty, about 600 BCE, the ruling house favoured the hues gold and silver. Red and black, on the other hand, ultimately supplanted these metallic hues as royal favorites. During the Ming dynasty, nail polish was frequently produced from beeswax, egg whites, gelatin, vegetable colors, and gum arabic.

The poorer classes wore light hues in Egypt, while the upper classes used henna to color their nails reddish brown. Henna was frequently applied to the nails of mummified pharaohs.

In Europe, Frederick S. N. Douglas noted that Greek ladies painted their nails “dingy pink” when traveling in Greece in 1810-12, which he assumed was an old habit. In the early nail polish formulations, basic components including lavender oil, carmine, oxide tin, and bergamot oil. It was more customary to use colored powders and creams to polish nails and then buff them until glossy. Graf’s Hyglo nail polish paste was one sort of polishing solution available at the time.


Nail polish used to come in various colors, including clear, white, red, pink, purple, and black. Nail polish is available in a wide range of hues and tints. Nail polish now comes in various patterns, including cracked, glitter, flake, speckled, iridescent, and holographic, in addition to basic colors. Nail polish is frequently embellished with rhinestones or other ornamental elements. Some nail polishes claim to promote nail development, strengthen nails, prevent them from breaking, cracking, or splitting, and even eliminate nail chewing.

Natural pink base nails with white tips characterize French manicures, which are meant to seem like natural nails. One of the earliest popular and well-known color schemes was French manicures. Although French manicures began in Paris in the seventeenth century, they were most fashionable in the 1920s and 1930s. Traditional French manicures, on the other hand, were very different from what we see now. They were usually crimson, with a circular crescent form at the cuticle left blank to highlight the lunula of the nail, which is today known as a half-moon manicure.

In the current French manicure, the tips of the nails are painted in a variety of colors rather than white. Stickers and stencils can be used to create French tip nails. Painting with gloss or gel, or sculpting with acrylic, is still the most common method.
