I love how cute nail polish looks when done well. There’s so many colors and designs that you can do. I mean just look up nail polish ideas on pinterest… it’s crazy and pretty awesome. Also I’ve actually never gone to a nail salon and gotten a pedicure or a manicure. Unfortunately I kind of stink at putting nail polish on…
So I just ask my husband to do it. He does a much better job painting nails than me. And in my book it beats paying for a salon to do it.
Although, as of during my pregnancy I have not been wearing nail polish. Despite how pretty colored nails can look, in general nail polish tends to contain ingredients that not all that great for our health or our babies health.
Ingredients such as Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate), Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Parabens, TPHP (Triphenyl Phosphate), are commonly found in nail polish. Each has it’s own purpose for use and set of health problems that come along with it.
For more information I found 7 Toxic Chemical Ingredients to Avoid in Nail Polish by Catherine Roberts to be helpful.
