The short answer is: Yes! Nail wraps are safe during pregnancy. In this blog I will tell you more about why wrap nails are safer than nail polish during your pregnancy. And also what the possible risks are of a visit to the nail salon.
Nail polish vs. nail wraps
There is nothing better than looking well-groomed during your pregnancy. A good alternative for your nails are self-adhesive nail stickers , because they are not liquid.
When using nail polish there is a chance that polish will enter the bloodstream through the cuticle or nail bed. This can affect the health of you and your unborn child.
Can I use a top coat during my pregnancy?
If you want to use a top coat , it is important to check the ingredients. Formaldehyde and toluene are ingredients that you should avoid during your pregnancy. However, these substances are only harmful if you use them often and for long periods of time.
For GNW's wrap nails, curing the gel under a UV lamp is a requirement. Your skin may be more irritated during your pregnancy, so it is advisable to apply sunscreen when using a UV lamp.
To go to the nail salon or not?
There are a number of reasons why a nail salon may not be safe for a pregnant woman.
First, some of the chemicals used in a nail salon, such as formaldehyde and toluene, can be harmful to your health. These substances can cause birth defects in an unborn baby if a pregnant woman inhales them.
Secondly, the air in a nail salon may not be adequately ventilated, meaning the concentration of chemicals in the air may be higher than in other areas. This can negatively affect the health of a pregnant woman. It is therefore best to exercise caution during pregnancy and, if in doubt, contact your doctor or midwife for advice before making an appointment at a nail salon.
In short, you can easily get a manicure during your pregnancy, but if you really want to be safe, then sticking gel nail stickers is a very good alternative.
