If you must get your nails done when you are pregnant, be sure and have them painted in a well-ventilated area and, if possible, with as few chemical ingredients in the polish, topcoat, basecoat and remover as possible. Studies lead us to believe that workers in nail salons are prone to health problems like stillbirths, birth defects, and stunted developmental growth. There's no study out that definitively proves this, but there is evidence of increased risk of spontaneous abortion among nail salon employees. The bottom line is that it's better to be safe than sorry.
