Best Answer

Getting your nails done is not really harmful to a fetus, but the fumes and the possible exposure to bacteria and other disease are. Choosing a nail salon that is well ventilated and sanitary will reduce the risks involved. However, any infections that you may encounter will likely affect your child.
