Can I Use Nail Polish While Pregnant?

Theres been a lot of talk lately about nail polishes that are 3-free, meaning they dont contain the three toxic chemicals DBP (dibutyl phthalate), toluene and formaldehyde. DBP may cause hormone-production problems in a fetus; toluene may cause reproductive issues, headaches, itchy eyes and more; and formaldehyde can cause breathing problems and even cancer. Who knew a pretty mani could be so scary!

While some experts think exposure to nail polish could be harmful to your fetus, theres no clear evidence that the occasional manicure or pedicure is unsafe.

The good news is nail polishes by popular brands OPI, Sally Hansen and Essie are 3-free. The bad news is that some other companies nail products that were labeled 3-free have been found to contain some of these nasty chemicals. (See a list of those products here.) If that makes you nervous, you may want to avoid nail polish completely (au naturel nails can look pretty too!). But we think its okay to choose a 3-free polish by a brand you trust.

If youre heading to the nail salon for your manicures and pedicures, make sure theres proper ventilation and that the instruments being used have been sterilized. Ask the nail technician not to cut your cuticles, since youre more prone to infections while youre pregnant and cutting that delicate skin could let in bacteria and germs.
