I love having a little girl. And while being a mom to a daughter isn’t about playing dress-up with a little miniature doll, I can’t deny that I do enjoy that part about it. It’s also fun now that my daughter is getting a little bit older and is starting to show interest in such things. Often during the day she’ll bring me a certain pair of pants that she wants to put on, or a necklace of mine. She has also taken to bringing me bottles of nail polish to put on after she’s seen me paint my own nails. I was a little hesitant at first, because I didn’t think I would be able to pain the nails of such a wiggly, little being, but it was actually much easier than I thought.
After seeing a few photos I shared on my Instagram, I’ve had questions from other moms asking me how I managed to paint her nails, so I thought I’d share a few tips to help make your mini manicure easy breezy!
