Last summer I used to paint her toes ALL. THE. TIME. She would literally ask me to do it every single day. I did do that a lot, but I've never painted her fingernails before. The Saturday after Valentine's Day I got the kit out to let her play with it. After I showed her how the lip gloss worked, she said she wanted to go in her room by herself - haha. Typical 3 year old, right?? We actually did let her take them in there by herself, but we explained to her that it did NOT go anywhere but on her lips. We told her that she was not allowed to put it anywhere else (the walls, floor, etc.) She seemed to understand, so we let her have some freedom. After about 5 minutes of silence, I asked her what she was doing (from the other room). She said she was playing with it still. I asked her to come into the room and, when she did, it was everything we could do to not bust out laughing. I didn't want to laugh at her because I didn't want to make her feel self-conscious about what she had done. She gets embarrassed VERY easily, so we try to be careful about not hurting her little spirit. Anyway...this is what we found...
Yes, it was even on her teeth - haha.
After that, I pulled out an old towel and let her paint her own nails - also a first for her. She had so much fun. She did her toes, my toes, and her nails.
Both of our painted nails (mine done by me obvs - haha)
She still wanted to paint more, so she asked daddy if she could paint his toes, too. He was an awesomely good sport and told her sure. :) The upside for him is that this polish is so cheap, that it literally washes away in the bath/shower. We were all polish free by the end of the night.
Such a good sport and an AWESOME daddy!
They're not much prettier with polish - haha.
Matching toes again - this time with real polish.
She did a pretty good job.
I think they look perfect. :)
Next up: trying to convince her to go to the nail salon with me. :)
