Painting my nails?

I was wondering if you think it is okay if I paint my nails with my almost a year daughter in the room? I turn on a fan, but you can still smell it a little. It's way to cold outside to go outside otherwise I would, but yet I just want a little color on my nails. What do you guys think yah or nay?

  • I'm pretty sure it's okay. I've been painting my nails since the day I brought my son home from the hospital, in the house. He's 5 now and no signs of nail polish fume poisoning. LOL.

  • Definately... Polish her's too! They love that! My granddaughters know its manicure time when they come to grandmas... Someone even polished my first granddaughters nails when she was a week old... Perfectly fine.

  • I'm sure it'd be ok but if you're worried just go into the bathroom to paint them and turn the vent on. :)

  • Gosh hat is a hard one maybe on ocassion but I think I would paint my nails when she is down for a nap I agree the order isnt to bad but for a little person it might not be wise.
