If you love your mani-pedi and don’t want to take any chances, then here are some great pregnancy safe polishes to try.
They say it’s safe to paint your nails every now and then during pregnancy, but you can never be too sure! It’s always good to take extra precaution for your baby’s health as most nail polishes contain chemicals that irritate your eyes, nose, throat and lungs just by breathing it in.
1. Knocked Up Nails: They have 21 shades that are all free of the 5 main polish chemicals, including formaldehyde, toluene, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate and camphor. The names are pretty unforgettable too—”O-blue-GYN” and “Red-E or Not, Here Comes Baby.” Haha.
2. Scotch Naturals: each shade is 100% free from formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalates, ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, nitrocellulose, acetone and heavy metals.
3. Acquarella Nail Polish: This polish is free of animal testing, vegan, non-toxic, and safe for use during pregnancy. It’s also said to helps hydrate your nails for less chipping.
