  • Yes. I started painting them when she asked. Uh, about 19 months I suppose.
    She wanted them to be like mommys. She will be 2 next month.

  • I do, my DD will be 2 october 26th, I started doing her toe nails when she was 8 months old, and her finger nails when she asked me to do them. Wish I never started...she ALWAYS wants them done now lol

  • My DD was about 4months when i started to paint her toe nails...She is one now and i plan on painting her nails when she knows not to stick her fingers in her mouth.

  • I started when she didnt put her hands in her mouth as much. Its not good to digest nail polish. Sorry I cant give you and age but shes 12 now. That was a while ago.

  • I first painted my daughter's nails when she was two and a half. She loves having them done. I'm getting a manicure next week for a wedding that I'm in, and I'm considering letting her get one too (she's three and a half now). I think she'd think it was cool, it'll just depend on price.

  • A manicure for a three and a half year old??? I think I've heard everything now.... Mommy can't you just do it at home?

  • I've painted my daughter's toenails a few times, when she asked. I think she was 23 months the first time. I'll wait for fingernails until she's older.
