From China, the nail polish craze spread across India, the Middle East and northern Africa. Once we reached the 19th century, nail polish just started to reach the US, England and France markets. In the 1920s and 1930s, France started to see manicure establishments popping up in any medium to large city!Modern day nail polish as we know it was spurred on by the creation of automobile paint. In 1932, Revlon became the first to create a nail polish line for women.
