I get anxious and my heart races when i use gel nail polish, i'm not sniffing it, just doing my nails, is this common? what is it?

Not common.: Hard to explain. Some of these effects can be seen with acute inhalation of hydrocarbons / acetone, etc. But we are talking orders of magnitude greater than what the typical consumer would be exposed to. May just need to avoid smelling it.
