I think my only concern would be how often she puts her fingers in her mouth and her swallowing the polish..

I have painted my DD's toenails when she was about 8 mths old. I have not done her fingers (she is 22 mths) bc I worry about while she is eating, the chipped polish coming off in her mouth. I don't think that small amount would do any harm really.

yep, been painting my daughters since she was about 18m

but MIL is furious about it - even 5 yrs later cuz she says painting your nails as a child causes you to have a son with a small weiner. dunno...i've never looked it up, but i believe 90% of what she says is crap she makes up in her own head so i just let it go in one ear & out the other.
