Nail Polish?
 
What are your thoughts on nail polish? I found a nail polish called Little Piggy's but it is kind of $..it is non toxic..my DD is 1.5 and I thought about starting to paint her nails but just worried what is in the nail polish...

Depends on how often the child puts their fingers in their mouth. My oldest really didn't ever put things in her mouth except food and drink. She wasn't a thumb or finger sucker, so I probably wouldn't have care if she had nail polish. My youngest, though, still sucks her thumb at 4, so I would be less likely to let her wear it at such a young age.

We use piggy paint on my 2 year old. They run co-ops on here for piggy paint occasionally and its like 1/2 price. Check the Co-op board to see when the next one is

We use Piggy Paint here too. Even on DD1, but she's a nail biter so I'm concerned about what's going in her mouth. DD2 LOVES having her toes painted, it's too cute! :) O, and no matter what color I paint them, she points to them and says purple. lol

I use piggy paint too. Although I haven't put it on dd yet, she won't sit still to have her nails cut so I figure I may as well not even try to paint them right now. But it smells so much better than regular polish. Doesn't make me :yuck:

Dd1 is a nail biter so the rule is if she stops biting her nails long enough That I actually can clip her nails, I'll paint them. About once a year she stops biting her nails for about a month so I'll paint her nails. Dd2, rarely puts her hands in her mouth so I'll paint them if she asks - about twice a year.

For both girls I'll paint toes any time they ask. Which is 2-3 times a year.

I just buy cheapy fast drying nail polish in whatever color the kids want. I rarely ever paint my own nails.

Does it say water base right on it?

I use Piggy Paints with DD. She's 3. We have had then for about 1.5 years. They are small bottles, but still last forever. IMHO - it was worth it considering how often they put their hands in their mouth and how nailpolish chips. We only got 2 colors - hot pink and a clear or light pink with sparkles (don't have it right in front of me).
