Hi all, I am in a very early pregnancy. My perid is supposed to start tomorrow but i have tested sine thursday a total of 7 times and all poditive. Anyway i am due for a refill on my nails. Should I get hem done or not?
I'm not an expert in what is contained in the stuff that is used at manicures, but I have heard that those new shellac nails are BADBADBAD. They contain a lot of chemicals. Maybe acrylic also contains chemicals that you should avoid?
Personally, I try to avoid all and any potentially harmful chemicals during pregnancy, especially early on. ..but I tend to be a worry wart.
Whatever you get, make sure you're in a well ventilated area.
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

I cant remember exactly what it is about acrylic, i think it is the bonding agent but not 100% sure, I just know its not good. Especially when you so early along and things can pass through the placenta so easily to your child.
Acetone is used to take them off and that stuff is horrible... it hit me one day when I was soaking my nails off how bad it is to have my hands sitting in acetone and I have never put them on since... acetone will eat a plastic bowl into a hole that's why they use a glass bowl and I am supposed to stick my hands in it?!?!?!
I agree with the other ladies too about a well ventilated area
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 'Blessings' by Laura Story (What if trials of this life, are your mercies in disguise) Glorious Ruins
