  • My daughter paints her own and she's 8 (will be 9 in August). I'm 32 weeks pregnant, so she's also been painting my toenails for me!

  • I painted her toes at 18 months and her hands when she could keep them out of her mouth. As for her doing it on her own...we'll see. I guess, when she has enough control to keep it off of everything else.

  • I think it was around 9 or 10.

  • Kiwi started painting her own at around 2 or just before. She's five now, and when I want my toes painted, I let her do it, she does it so much straighter than I do!
