Do you paint your DD nails?

I'm just curious if anyone else does this. I was painting my nails one day and my dd was watching me. So I decided to paint hers too. She smiled and liked looking at her nails afterwards.

  • Yes. My teenagers have always enjoyed painting their nails or having me do it. I think it's part of the important process of enjoying and bonding with your daughter. But I recently took my two year old to the doctor and the doctor was appalled that her little nails were painted, saying she'll ingest small flakes of the polish and it's very unhealthy. Well, so I asked 4 other doctors who also work at that practice who I have had cause to see for other reasons with other children or for myself, and they have unanimoulsy said, "Paint her nails! If she swallows some tiny flecks, it will pass through her body harmlessly"

  • my mother used to paint my nails, as early as i can remember was 3 yo. it actually stopped my from biting my nails at a very young age because i didn't want to ruin the color. she would also draw smilies on my nails with a marker, and that thrilled me no end!

  • Yup... I've been painting ODD's (almost 3) nails for a long time.. Started with just her toes, until she learned to keep her fingers out of her mouth. We do it usually once a week.
