Do you paint your daughter's finger nails?

My daughter (who's almost 6) has always hated when I cut her finger nails so since she was one I've bribed her into letting me (without a fight) by painting them with fast dry polish after. Does anyone else paint their little girl's finger and toe nails?

  • Yes! She is very much a "girly girl" and likes to have her nails and toes done. When she was your DD's age I did them for her, she's 11 now and she does her own. (I bought her all her own things, it makes her feel very grown up!)

  • That's how I bribed my daugter, too. Same age. Before that I just pinned her down. :) But I think she's old enough now and she enjoys it. Now she doesn't mind her "manicures".

  • My daughter is 2 1/2 and has had her nails painted numerous times. I think the first time was when she was only like two months old. Her fingernails are a new thing, we just started doing them around Christmas, but toes she has had done for a long time! LOL She asks me to do them, we use fast drying, non-toxic paint. :-)

  • LOL Trini, I have pictures of when my daughter painted her own at age 2. I should've known she was up to no good because she let me use the bathroom alone and when I came out she'd painted them LOL It was cute.

  • If you have a 5 Below store, Scuba, they have a ton of colors to choose from. My daughter's face lights up when she sees them. They also sell the accent polishes if your daughter enjoys getting creative with designs.

  • My oldest is 10 and loves it when I paint her nails and clean up her fingers. I have been teaching her to take better care of her hands and feet.
