Q: Should I store my nail polish or nail strips in the refrigerator?

A: No. It is reported that not only may your traditional liquid nail polish crystalize in the refrigerator, but it may slow the over-thickening of the thickening agents in your nail polish. Some reports state that refrigeration may slow down the discoloration that happens as liquid nail polish ages. It is recommended that if you DO store your liquid nail polish in the refrigerator, you remove it and bring it to room temperature before opening. Opening nail polish that is chilled may cause the water condensation to affect the quality.
