It is important to protect your nails by applying a transparent silicium nail polish base coat to strengthen the nail, two coats of coloured anti-UV silicium nail polish to protect them from the sun and a final coat of clear silicium nail polish during chemotherapy. To remove your nail polish, opt for an acetone-free nail polish remover.

Why use Silicone Nail Polish During Chemo? 

Silicone nail polish is a great option for people who want to protect their nails during chemotherapy. In fact, chemotherapy treatments (especially those based on Taxol or Taxotere) can have negative effects on the nails, often making them brittle and cracked. By using silicone nail polish you can strengthen your nails and protect them from damage. Additionally, because silicon is a naturally occurring element in the human body, it is considered a safer and gentler alternative to some other drugstore nail care products. 

Finally, there can be significant psychological benefits to taking care of yourself while you're battling cancer. Adding a touch of beauty to your skincare routine can help you feel more confident and comfortable in your body. This can help you better cope with the challenges of the disease and improve your overall quality of life during treatment.

Silicone nail polish: which one to choose? 

When choosing a silicone varnish, it is important to consider several factors to find the best one. Think about the texture and finish you prefer. Silicone paint is available in glossy, matte or even glitter finishes. Finally, choose a color that suits your personal style. Whether you prefer neutral, subtle tones or vibrant, bold colors, there's a silicone polish for everyone. The brands Eye Care, Même Cosmetics or La Roche Posay offer high-quality silicone varnishes that you can apply with confidence.

In summary, the choice of a silicone polish depends on your personal preference, the quality of the brand, the texture and hold of the polish, and the color. By considering these factors, you can find the perfect silicone polish that will protect and strengthen your nails while making you feel beautiful and confident.

How do I apply a silicone varnish? 

To protect your nails during your chemotherapy, apply a nail base of protective silicone varnish, then 2 layers of opaque colored silicone varnish with anti-UV protection to protect them from the sun and finally a layer of silicone top coat. Use an acetone-free nail polish remover to avoid further damaging your nails. Well, not a day without polish! and even several weeks after the end of your chemo.

Finally, silicone polish is a great option for people looking to take care of their nails during chemotherapy. In addition to being comfortable and protective, the polishes can help you feel beautiful and confident throughout the treatment.
