A 32-year-old female asked:

Is it safe to get gel or acrylic nails while pregnant?

Yes: Patients can, in rare instances, develop hypersensitivity/allergy to these. That said, this is low risk and safe. If you notice a rash, remove them and consult an Allergist so you know what else to watch out for.
