    Département interhospitalier de dermatologie, CHU Brugmann-HUDERF, CHU Saint-Pierre, 322, rue Haute, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgique.
    Cosmetic embellishment of fingernails involves the use of substance that harden either after the evaporation of solvents (varnishes) or after polymerisation (artificial acrylic nails, gel tips, glue-on artificial nails). Pathological reactions to cosmetics usually occur at a remote site for varnishes, and, most commonly, in situ with polymerising substances. Unvarnished artificial nails do not affect pulse oximetry readings, and in theory, patients are not required to remove them. Read More
