    I don't think biting your nails (acrylic or natural) is a good habit to get into. But, if you bite off a part of an acrylic nail and swallow it, your stomach acid will dissolve the nail.

      I never bite my natural nails and I never really get acrylic nails on.. So it's only once in a blue moon but when I get them on I tend to bite them off.. Thanks tho!

    Nah, not really. The worry with acrylics and pregnancy is the *fumes* that you inhale when you put them on. Once it's dried it's basically inert and will pass through your system undisturbed.

      Aw that's so good to hear, I know I won't get them done again the fumes were awful.. Thanks anyways!

    Harm to be baby? No. But, if it was sharp it could scratch your digestive track.

      Makes me feel so much calmer, thanks so much! And I don't mind that once baby is fine 😁

    No.  However, it's usually recommended that you at least wear a mask to avoid inhaling the powder as you're getting fills.

      I am not getting fills, I've had them on about 4 weeks and I'm taking them off myself and just bit on and think I swallowed a small bit, thanks tho!

    I don't see what one thing has to do with the other, but swallowing a bit of nail won't hurt you or the baby.

      How do you mean what one thing has to do with the other? Thank you

      Doesn't feel like it did but once thats all that happens and doesn't affect my baby that's all I care about 🙏 it was really small anyways
