 my daughter is 3 1/2 months old and has the most gorgeous nails, i was wondering when everyone would paint their daughters nails, i know its non toxic, so if she put her hands in her mouth and swallowed it,  [whichi doubt shed get it off since she has no teeth and barely sucks on her hands] it would be ok, i cant think of any reason not to, but i liek to check before i do things

Good question. I think I'll wait until she's old enough to tell me she wants them done and I know she won't put the wet paint in her mouth. Definately not yet, and she's 9 months now.

My DD is 22 months and me and her dad have both painted her toes and fingers it is the only time she ever holds still, she likes it and I have no issue with it.
