Shallow query- nail polish brands

(2 Posts)

I haven't been painting my nails in the 1st trimester. I am usually nail mad (ex biter proud of my natural talons), nail art and glitter polish - I feel naked without! I intend to as soon as I hit the big 13 weeks but with well known brands that do not contain formaldehyde etc'. On the 'down to earth' can you/can't you sites I have read this appears to be OK.

Model's Own and Mavala are safer brands, I know. I find their textures either thin (Model's Own) or too thick (Mavala) when not pregnant.

Any recommendations or reviews of other brands?

PS. Did my h/w on the scary sites too. The actual surveys were women working long shifts in poorly ventilated nail bars. So what, plainting 50/100 sets of nails plus acrylics per day 5 days a week 8 hours? And there was still no firm link, although some US sites warn caution. The NHS in fine with it, provided ventilation is used and 'no toxic 3' polishes.
