  • I never stopped painting my nails just because I was pregnant. Just make sure you're in a room with a fan or open window... It's not like you're huffing the fumes, and most of them don't even have bad fumes any more. If you're using the Formaldahyde free ones like I do, there is even less of a risk...

  • There are less toxic nailpolishes, not safe ones.

  • I always paint my nails..
    it's just the fumes you worry about a little.. which is why we either do ours outside or near a window..
    I even let my DD paint hers (she's 2 1/2)...
