Lead (as Pb), not more than 10 parts per million.
Arsenic (as As), not more than 5 parts per million.
Mercury (as Hg), not more than 1 part per million.
Silver (as Ag), not less than 99.9 percent.
(c)Uses and restrictions. The color additive silver may be safely used for coloring fingernail polish at a level not to exceed 1 percent of the final product.
