Weird question

Hi everyone...

I have a weird question.
I have shellac on my nails and today when I was doing my 100% water change I noticed one of my nails was missing some shellac.
I'm not sure where it's gone, I can't see it in his tank (I noticed it was gone once he was back in)
If its under the gravel, is that bad?

Sorry for the random question!!

Xoxo

I would have thought that nail polish would be toxic to fish, it smells so trong when you paint it on........ maybe the chip did not actually end up in the tank

but the shellac is not actual nail polish...
i did some research on it last night and it only disolves in acetone...
so lucky there is none of that in his tank!

Once it's dry, I would think it is pretty harmless.
