Hello!

I am in the 8th grade and working on a science fair project. I have been
working hard on figuring out the ingredients in fingernail polish and
what they do.  I am getting stuck understanding polymers and
copolymers.  I did find a good site called Macrogalleria but I have a
hard time figuring out what copolymer to look for.  Do you have nay
suggestions?

My hypothesis is that it is the copolymer that makes fingernail polish
durable.  Also I can't find any good books on the subject.  Do you have
any ideas?

Thank you for your time.

Emily Ellis
