Can pregnant women do nail art? You know everything after watching this one!

People often ask Jack,

Can pregnant women do nail art?

Jack formally responded here,

Yes, but it is not recommended.

(The manicure mentioned in this article is only for Gel polish and nail polish)

Regular nail products are safe and available for pregnant women

There have been rumors that nail products contain dangerous ingredients, which can cause cancer and infertility, and many people believe this rumor, which has caused misunderstandings on nails.

Most of the early nail polishes contained three health-influencing ingredients, commonly known as [toxic trio], which were toluene, dibutyl phthalate, and formaldehyde.

Toluene can make nail polish smooth and more uniform in color, but inhalation of high concentrations of toluene can cause dizziness and nausea and affect the fetus.

Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) prevents nail polish from falling off, but inhalation can affect fertility and may cause cancer.

Formaldehyde, carcinogen

But this is very early nail products, and now regular nail products do not contain these harmful substances. Most of the better brand nail polishes are 3-Free (excluding the above three harmful substances), and even 5-Free (in addition to the above three, they do not contain formaldehyde resin and camphor). The main component of nail polish is actinic resin, and it does not contain the above harmful substances.

Whether nail polish or gel polish is applied, nail removal cannot be avoided. Some ingredients in nail polish removers, such as acetone, butyl acetate, and isopropyl acetate, can also cause headaches. However, these substances are volatile, and there is no problem as long as they are used in a ventilated environment.
From the ingredients point of view, as long as it is a regular nail polish product (Gel polish & nail polish), pregnant women can use it.

Why is it not recommended for pregnant women to do nail art?

Since nail products are safe, why not recommend it?


After pregnancy, your physique becomes sensitive and you cannot judge whether you are allergic to certain substances, so nail art is not recommended.


For family harmony, it is not recommended for pregnant women to do nail art.

In the past, a prospective father left a message to Jack saying that his wife is a loyal fan of Xiu Xiu and has always loved nail art. But recently she was pregnant and wanted to do nail art, hoping that Jack could write an article “nail art can cause cancer” to dispel his wife’s idea of ​​doing nail art.

When Jack saw the message, he was really crying. His starting point is good. He hopes that his wife and baby are healthy and healthy, but he can never let me make up and mess up to confuse everyone.

For some straight men and elders, manicure, makeup, and hair dyeing are all taboos for pregnant women, which will affect the baby’s health. Even if it proves that nail makeup and hair coloring are not harmful to pregnant women, their ideas will not change easily. Instead of arguing with the family, it is better not to do nail art in exchange for family harmony.

Do you still like Jack ’s science today?

I feel pretty good remember to forward
