I will be having a girl in just a few weeks and I was wondering about nail polish. When did you first paint your little girls toes? What is the safest polish to use? I have two boys right now so this girly stuff is new to me :)

Thanks for the help!!

I waited till 1 with my older DD 5. I have a feeling this baby will end up with polish early if DD has anything to do about it.

It also depends on if she sucks her thumb or fingers than I would only use piggy paint brand with is kid safe

I started painting my first daughters toenails around 6 months, I waited until after she was 2 and quit sucking her thumb before painting her fingernails. I have a 3 month old daughter now and in a few months I'll probably start painting her toenails too.

Piggy paint! It doesn't have all the nasty chemicals in it and doesn't stink.

I have 3 girls. I didn't start painting my older two's toenails until 2yo because they wiggle a lot. I do not paint their fingernails still because they put their fingers in their mouths still.

Piggy paint is the safest I believe.

Piggy Paint is what I use on DD nails/piggies and she was around 2yo.

 I think I did her toes for the first time for her 2nd birthday.  I used some kids stuff that lasted all of about 1 day.

Check your local Walmart or Target for Piggy Paint! It will be in with the regular nail polish.

Keeping in mind the toxic chemicals in nail polish, I didn't put any on DD at all. She was in grade school, and we didn't do it more than a couple of times a year.
