Do you paint your DD's nails? & Do you let her put on makeup? (or do you put makeup on her..for giggles?)

My DD is only 2, (will be 3 in july) I paint her nails when she sees me doing my own.

  • My 3 year old daughter LOVES getting her toenails painted.  Pink is her favorite color!  Make up is "play" nothing real.  Except lip gloss.  She loves lip gloss.  She is a total girly girl.  My sister painted my 3 year old face with real make up though and I had her wash it off.  I don't know why it bothered me.  Maybe it was how mature she looked but that got resolved real quick, lol.

  • I painted my kids' nails when they were little, but no make up.

  • DD is 3. I have been painting her nails since she was around 18 months or so. She had make up put on her for fun for the first time the other day by my very best friends DD who is 10. It was hilarious. she loved it. Not something we will do a lot but if was fun for that day and she had to wash it off before we left for home.

  • I paint her nails a pink polish that is almost clear, she uses my lip gloss sometimes but just for fun and there have ben a few wet and boring saturdays when we're played dress up and done our make up and taken silly pics.

  • I have painted their toenails since they were infants. I will also do make up if we are bored and not planning on leaving the house. I will let them get made up and wear dresses and then we will have a tea party.

  • I used to do her nails for her but now she is into art and has no time as she puts it to do her nails every day. So now they are just clear most of the time.

  • I paint them every once in a while. But if I'm putting on make up I put very little blush on her and maybe a little lip gloss. Nothing else.
