Be careful of salons that aren't ventilated properly if you were to go there to have it done, but other than that, it should be ok. I know I polished my nails! :) Just be sure to be in a ventilated area.

Happy polishing! :)

I am no doctor, but the fumes are what can be harmful. so my advice is just paint them outside or by an open window. I always have painted my nails & toes while pregnant, but i'd def stayed out of those nail salons...now those fumes could gag me!!

I painted my nails yesterday (first and last time) in a non ventilated area. I'm afraid for my baby. Will something happen?

Yes, it is. I asked my doctor when I got pregnant. She said as long as you don't sniff it, isn't she funny? lol

Absolutley!! Just make sure that you are in a well ventilated area when you do them. The doctor i had for my last pregnancy ( we've since moved otherwise she'd be my doctor still) said "If you can reach your toenails paint them too as it will give a an extra little pick me up to look at your sore feet and see how pretty they look!"
