  • I did the entire time I was pregnant. It's better to go to someone American or to an actual salon. Try to avoid the places in malls or Wal mart that have the oriental people, they use a chemical thats really bad for you to inhale. You should be fine. Lots of women get them done. Go relax, you deserve it!

  • yeah you can get them done.. but you need to wear a mask.. and as far as american and orientals, that was kinda dumb.. they use the same chemicals AND the oriental people i have went to are WAY better than the white hillbilly people who do them

  • Ask them for one of the masks they wear. As long as the room is well ventilated and you keep your mouth and nose covered, you'll be fine. If you start feeling dizzy, GET OUT OF THERE! Baby will feel the effects before you, so if you're feeling it, it's time to go!

  • I got my nails done throughout my entire 1st pregnancy and by the oriental people. They do a much quicker, better job and my baby was fine. I get them done during this pregnancy too. I'm a HORRIBLE nail biter and they look so much better as acrylics!
