  • Some people develop allergies to products that they used to use all the time during pregnancy. You want to watch to make sure you don't have any reactions. Polish is totally fine, but it's best to stay away from acrylic nails/ tips.

    PP is right. Your immune system is different now and you could get a fungus or infection very easily. Check the sanitation grade/ health inspection or go to a place you trust.

    Wash your hands well after you leave to avoid any chemicals being ingested when you eat later.

  • yes, but it needs to be in a well ventilatedarea. Try to be as close to an open window or door as possible. Make sure that all the tools are new and clean so that you don't pick up any fungus or infection. If you get a pedi make sure they know you are pregnant so they don't massage you feet too long as it can sometimes trigger contractions. Most of all enjoy your self :)
