I wouldnt get acrylic or anything like that done, but if its just a file and polish type deal i dont really see the problem.

Why no acrylic?

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.

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.

Ok. Thanks so much. The problem is that i already have it on my nails. I got it before I got pregnant. Anyway, i will just go to a ventilated spa and get them off.

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

Good luck!

I didn't have my nails done till I gave birth. Just to make sure.
