Re: Acrylic nails

The offgassing & chemicals are an issue, but, if something were to happen to you during pg, it is difficult to get an accurate pulse oximetry reading if you have nail polish or (especially) acrylics on. They can do it on your toe (if that's not painted) or your ear, but fingertip is usually the first choice.
