Can You Get Your Nails Done While Pregnant  Is it Safe? 

From a scientific point of view, not much can be said about the dangers of having your nails done while pregnant due to the lack of sufficient studies conducted regarding the topic.  

Still, most experts would agree that a manicure does not have direct harm done to either the baby or the mother.  But here are some risks of getting your nails done while pregnant.


Symptoms: Swelling, redness, or irritation around the manicured finger or toenails.


Symptoms: Like an athlete's foot, fungal infections can give your nails a yellowish color.


There are also risks of suffering from viral infections by simply going inside the salon through inhalation, ingestion, or contact bodily fluids containing the virus.


Some nail products may contain a strong smell but no severe risk, while others may contain potent chemicals that have no smell at all.
