    Default Nail polish on boys...

    My little boy whos 2 loves getting me to paint his nails for him... Hes usually into really boyish things so i enjoy doing it i always paint them blue or green but today he wanted them bright pink! So now my little boy is going to walk around with bright pink nail polish on his toes and fingers. We have some parents at my day care who wont even let their sons where clear nail polish. Whats your opinion on this? And would you let your boy do it?

    I'd love to paint my 2yr old DS' nails but he wouldn't let me! My 4yr old DD likes hers done and I paint them every now and then.

    I don't paint my own nails so it has never come up with my 3yo son.

    I wouldn't encourage a girl or a boy to paint their nails, but if a child of mine asked, then I suppose I would allow them to have some child friendly nail polish.

    My 2yo son has yellow polish on his toes now, because my sister cut everyone's nails the other day and then painted toe nails for my dd, niece and he wanted his toes done. He proudly showed a few people immediately after - 'look colour'. No one gives two hoots except his dad who wasn't that thrilled.

    DS has had his nails painted dark metallic grey before. When DD has her nails painted (which isn't often...only when she asks), DS usually wants to be part of the action so I get out "mummys special nail polish" (which happens to be my favourite) for DS.

    DH isn't over the moon about it but he tolerates the grey.

    2 of my boys are walking around with red polish on their fingers & toes as we speak

    They ask to have it done occasionally & I don't mind (neither does their Father).

    I don't care. I have many boys I teach at preschool that wear nail polish no big deal I would allow my son to get them painted

    DS often wants his nails painted. I don't mind. He does mine sometimes though I don't usually like them painted, but it's good for helping develop his fine motor skills

    We don't have it in the house, but at work I see a lot of little boys come in with it. I don't really have an opinion on it.

    I don't often paint my nails so my sons have never asked. But my 4yo's best buddy at preprimary has an older sister so he has painted nails most of the time, it looks cute
