Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Pedicures and manicures need to be done at a podiatry office for many women with diabetes due to the risk of infection. However, I don't have any research here on EmpowHER that suggests simple nail polish should also be avoided. Your room-mate needs to ask her doctor why he/she told her this.
Best,
Susan
