Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredNail polish is sometimes recommended by doctors as a cosmetic fix for psoriatic nails (nails that have changed shape or color as a result of the autoimmune condition psoriasis). However, dermatologists warn that long-term use of polish can lead to brittle nails that peel or split easily. If you have a nail disorder, it is best to ask your dermatologist whether using nail polish could worsen the condition.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
