Question 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...

Re: 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

Re: Nail Polish?

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.

Re: Nail Polish?

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).
