(WTOL) - A new report shows that non-toxic nail polish can actually be toxic, according to Daily Mail.

And the toxins have been linked to problems such as infertility, cancer and fetal abnormalities.

Polishes marketed as 3-Free to 13-Free claim to be chemical free of the 'toxic trio' - DnBP, toluene and formaldehyde - but could still contain ingredients linked to health problems.

Many of these toxins have been banned from the EU but are still often used in the U.S., where cosmetics are allowed to go to market before being tested for safety, Daily Mail reports.
