You might not know it, but nail polish was first used in China as early as 3000 BC. Back then it was made from a mix of egg whites, beeswax, gelatin and vegetable dye, which sounds pretty healthy.
It wasn't until the invention of the car that modern nail polish was invented. Yep, it was based on automobile paint. And get this, the birth of acrylic nails in 1978 was thanks to a dentist!
Nowadays we have access to just about every colour under the sun, and every kind of finish from shimmer and frost to iridescent and duo-chrome. There's even a nail polish made with 267 carats of black diamonds, that retails for $250,000.
