Is it okay to sniff nail polish?
    

Thanks for your question because it is an important topic. We do not feel you will do yourself any good by sniffing anything, including nail polish. In fact, the fumes from nail polish and other commonly used products can change your brain chemistry and permanently damage your brain and nervous system. Sniffing also destroys other important parts of your body - like your lungs, kidneys, liver, blood, and bones. Once damaged, these parts can not readily repair themselves. That’s how sniffing can destroy you.

Sniffing is also habit forming. One day, just for fun, you sniff some nail polish or another substance just to try it. A “friend said it will make you “high.” Unfortunately, the next day you are hooked. Or worse - dead from suffocation when the inhaled fumes take the place of oxygen in your blood.

Sniffing will take away everything that makes your life interesting. Instead of riding your bike, competing in sports or dancing at parties, you will wear diapers, lose your teeth, and eat mushy food someone else feeds you. You’ll need a wheelchair to get around. And all that from simply sniffing nail polish? Is it worth the risk? We don’t think so!
