Is it safe?

Is it "safe" to paint a 2.5yo's finger nails? I love to paint her lil piggies in the summer and I've been thinking about painting her finger nails now too.

Probably. I don't think at 2.5 they really put their hands in their mouths that much. That's what I would be worried about.

You can get kid friendly nail polish. Claires carries a whole set of it. However my 2.5 yr old doesn't put her fingers in her mouth so I use the regular stuff now.

That's good to know, thanks! She does tend to eat with her hands alot even though we give her a fork or spoon to use. lol That's all I was worried about.

I paint DD's nails all the time.  I have this oil stuff at Sally's that dries it in 60 seconds flat, 1 coat.  Then I wash her hands off in the sink.  She'll be 4 in May.

Honestly, is it "safe"? Not really, when you consider what nail polish is made of, it's not really safe for anyone.
