Nail Polish: The coloring of ones nails can be traced back to ancient Egypt, where nail color signified social status, red being royal, (the color red was mostly derived from henna, or even blood) whereas women of lower rank were allowed to use only pale hues. The next major step in the evolution of nail polish took place in China around 600 BC. Chinese royalty used gold and silver, along with black and red nail lacquer that was made using Arabic gum, egg whites gelatin and beeswax Modern nail polish became readily available in the 1920’s, when automobile paint was created.
