Bring toddler to nail salon

I want to go get a pedicure so bad(and need one cause my heal is cracking), but I have no one to watch my daughter. She probably will sit still for 30 mins. My salon is non-acrylic so the smell isn't bad. Would you take your toddler?

  • NOPE. because if the toddler runs in to someone etc then it could be rather disasterous. many woman also go to salons for "ME" time. away from kids

  • My mom took my sister all the time and they would paint her nails too. the rooms were very well vented so there wasn't much of a smell. My sister loved gettting her nails painted, she said she was a PRincess

  • I could NEVER take my 17 month old to the nail salon. I can barely take him to walmart.

  • Nope. Pedicures are a good hour, that's a lot of time for your lo to get into trouble. There's so much they can get into in a nail salon, I'd wait until you have someone to watch her.

  • No. And I wouldn't take ME either. And what the heck can they do with your HEEL ?
    First--too much money for something I can do myself
    Second: It is well known to readers of printed material such as newspapers and magazines that serious infections can be passed to customers at nail salons.
    Third: No,don't take your kids.

  • I think you need to spare your time and do it by yourself rather than bring your toddler to nail salon :)

  • I would wait until my husband got home and then go without her.

  • no. If she gets a bug up her butt and decides to bolt,who will get her? Its unfair to expect her to sit there while you get a pedicure.
