How do nail products affect onycholysis?

Depending on the type of treatment you are receiving, your nail treatment can have either a positive or negative effect on onycholysis. If you leave on nail polish for too long or if you use too much remover, your nails can become dry and develop onycholysis. Also, trauma to the nail bed because of manicuring tools can cause onycholysis. Too much moisture can cause onycholysis as well. It is best to use products that are not too aggressive and that foster moisture and good nutrients in the nail bed.
