That depends on the type of fungus and the severity of the fungal infection. If you have a mild yeast infection, for example, yogurt suppositories may help.

Does nail fungus transfer to nail polish?

Well, if you don't have fungus and someone you know does, and has used nail polish, then I would advise you don't use the nail polish. If you do have fingernail fungus, and you are putting on nail polish to cover it up, then you are only serving to create an environment, in which the fungus thrives. Your nails need to be free of nail polish, and treated either with a home remedy such as tea tree oil, or go and seek a doctors opinion. I had nail fungus in my middle fingernail and was able to get rid of it with tea tree oil and white vinegar. It took a few months, but I did manage to get rid of it.
