I had those stupid monitors on my fingers. If you have nail polish on it can mess it up. And looking at your nails is a way to see if you are getting enough oxygen too.

My toes where painted with all 3 of mine and I had fake nails when I had my first. No one said anything to me about it.

fingernails need to be clear cause they use them to test your blood oxygen levels by pressing down and seeing how long it takes to get its color back. if your fingers are painted its hard to tell :) good luck

I had a pedicure before my daughter was born, special treat for me. No one said anything to me about it. They told me my toes looked pretty. :)
