  • oh what a good question! i want to know too. i do know they have some nail polishes that are not toxic and full of poision like the regular ones....maybe someone knows the brand name too. that would be great.

  • My second and thrird daughters were probably 2 when I started painting their nails because they wanted me to! My oldest was more on the tomboyish side so she wasn't interested in it until she was maybe 15. My littlest daughter is now 5 and she's a total tomboy so I don't think it's going to be any time soon!

  • I buy my 8 year old kid polish. It peels off pretty easy and is safe. I also paint her nails to do a little mommy/daughter time with a mani/pedi. Because of this my 2 1/2 year old wants her nails done. I won't do her hands but will sometimes do her toes. She loves to feel included.

  • I use Piggy Paints (non-toxic, made of mud) on my daughters. Started at 5. During school years, I only paint their toes.

  • My DD was 2 when I first painted her nails. She loves it!!  Even daddy will paint her nails sometimes. She's a girly girl.
