Can you wear nail polish if you're pregnant?

Can you, yes. Should you? That depends on what you are wearing. Your nail plate will absorb the solvents used to make it fluid as well as it evaporating (hence the smell, if it's conventional nitrocellulose). If you have concerns about the brands you are using, research them through the cosmetics database for their safety rating. See link below.

It's true - you don't have to stop being beautiful/glamorous when you are pregnant. In fact, when I was pregnant with my second son (2-1/2 years ago) that was the only time my finger nails and toe nails looked so good!!
