When my sister was pregnant with her firs child, she told me that you are not suppose to paint your nails. Is this correct? I am just wonding if I can paint my nails or not.

I am a nail tech. You can paint your nails with no worry at all. HOWEVER, if it does concern you for whatever reason just search for polishes that are tolulene free

My sister said the same thing when she was pregnant. She warned me about it. I did my own research and what I have found on the internet is that it would be better if you did NOT paint ur nails, but it you really wanted to, use the quick drying ones. it was stated that no, its not absorbed but the fumes are still pretty strong. they also said to wash the nails of immediately after removing the color to wash away any leftover remover. I think its just depends on if you really want to avoid anything unnatural during your pregnancy.

You shouldn't paint your nails while pregnant with polished that contain Dibutyl phthalate (DBP). Most polishes in this country have it. They can cause birth defects of the skeletal system. Most countries in Europe have banned the use of this stuff in nail polishes and last I read, this country is starting to follow suite. THere are some polishes that do not contain these chemicals and they are ok. The following web site has some you shouldn't use and some helpful links http://www.ewg.org/reports/beautysecrets/table1.html. I wouldn't risk it!! I have 2 healthy little buggers!! Good luck!
