Can you have gel polish during pregnancy?
Gel polish and pregnancy is still a hot topic among women expecting a child. A large part of them wonders if you can do gel nails during pregnancy. The answer is simple - you can. Gel polish in pregnancy is safe, although attention should be paid to the condition of the nails. Sometimes when pregnant, nails can be weaker and brittle. However, sometimes they can also grow faster. It depends on the individual situation and hormones. Remember, however, not to apply gel polish to a heavily damaged or weakened nail plate. Make sure to strengthen the nail plate first.
Are gel polishes safe during pregnancy?

At Semilac we have a wide range of gel nail colours without these substances for you to choose from. Whether its 423 Full of Sunshine neon yellow or 426 Sweet Luck pink, it’s completely up to you.

Can you paint your nails with gel polish?
Semilac gel polishes are safe for pregnant women. Despite this, many pregnant women have dilemmas whether you can paint your nails during pregnancy, so it is worth emphasising that the nails are made of a tough, dead substance called keratin, the same material that makes up hair; and the ingredients of gel polish do not penetrate the bloodstream.
