The other day I heard someone advise those with a compromised immune system (chemo and radiation patients) to bring their own polish because salon polish can have bacteria. However, they did not talk about base or top coat, which I would have thought would be the same...

I always thought that it was not possible to have bacteria survive in polish, or else the state would be all over it for sanitation reasons...but I could be wrong. Does anyone know if this is true?
