Acrylic Nails???

Have you ladies still gotten your nails done while being pregnant? I have found different opinions on different websites. I work FT so my nails break all the time without the acrylic overlay but I dont want to put the baby in jeopardy if I shouldnt be going to the salon every couple of weeks for an hour.

Thanks

I don't think the fumes would be good. Maybe borrow one of their masks to keep the fumes and dust out of your lungs. I have seen a lot of people do it. I think as long as it isn't an everyday thing it should't be a problem.

I got my nails done while I was pregnant with my son and the smells wasn't bad at all. If your worry about the smell you can always ask for a mask.

The nail salon I go to, you dont smell the fumes at all and I never gotten an infection. I guess I am being an nervous first time mother.

They recommend you sit close to the door so the fumes aren't as strong but other than that it's safe!
