use the non-acetone kind and youre fine. polish is ok too, since it doesn't really get on your skin much if at all. but avoid getting acrylics done, as it uses a LOT of acetone, which is absorbed directly thru your skin.
I used the cheap glue on kind while I was PG since I couldn't have the professional ones.
Or go to a salon where they only do one appointment in the room at a time. Like a hair place that has a nail tech that does them on timed appointments. the places in the malls need to be busy at all times to make a living.
I am a nail-tech, did it through two of my pregnancies. Both children are fine. I used acetone and acrylic and my Dr. said it was OK. So i have to say from experience, not a DR though, it is safe. The problem with having your nails done, such as anything artificial is that they may not stay on due to change in hormones. Same with coloring your hair, the hormaonal changes can affect the way the product reacts, buf as far as harm to the baby, it is not bad.
