Nitrocellulose, also known as guncotton, is the main ingredient in regular nail polish. It's made of plant fibre and is what causes TNT to explode. (Don't worry; it's also found in ping pong balls.) Ethyl acetate is used to dissolve the nitrocellulose. When you apply the nail polish to your nail, the solvent evaporates, leaving the nitrocellulose to dry into a solid (and pretty!) film.
