    what about nail polish remover? I have some nail polish I'd like to get off my feet but am afraid of the chemicals that might be in the remover. Any suggestions?

    ive not heard anything about the remover, but if you cant use the varnish you might not be able to use the remover.

    It's not very good to use nail polish during pregnancy. Years and years ago when I used to have acrylic nails my nail lady told me she would only use certain colours on pregnant women. Red nail polish was strictly forbidden. I guess due to the harsh dyes. Many nail polished have fermeldahide (sp?) in them, and that's very bad for you - pregnant or not.

    I would never of thought that nail varnish could be dangerous. I dont paint my nail very often but i do like to get acrylic nails done. Are any of the chemical used to do that dangerous?

    Oh noooooo! Thanks for posting this, I would have never known otherwise. I get a manicure every week coz I don't like it when my nails look scruffy. I guess its a small sacrifice to make for the wellbeing of the little one. Bare nails for eight months...Eeek

    This sounds awful, but I've had some on since before my BFP!!! Obviously a lot has chipped off now (thankfully it's a nude colour!) Is it bad to have it on when it's already there or is it just putting it on fresh that's a prob? Not sure whether it will be worse to use remover or leave it on until it chips off? :shrug:

    Looks like no one really agrees on whether it's safe or not. I would think, using common sense, unless you're repainting your nails every day you should be fine. What about women who work in nail salons? Do they go on maternity leave as soon as they get pregnant? I doubt it, so it's probably a very very tiny risk.
