Can I get a manicure with gel polish?

11-12 weeks pregnant, Questions/answers

Marie, I was wondering if I can get a manicure and pedicure with shellac polishes while pregnant. Is it safe? Thanks, and I figure I am not the only one with this question! Johanna


Excellent question, Johanna! Given that the contents of these products are not well-known, I asked my dermatologist advisor, Émilie Bourgault what she thinks. Happily, it’s safe to use shellac while pregnant or breastfeeding. So go get yourself pampered! 

All the best,

Marie
