kids getting mani/pedis

I took my DD whos 3 with me to the nail place with me the other day to get a mani/pedi with me and when I was talking to one of my friends she looked at me like I was nuts...She's such a girly girl and loves things like that so I thought it would be fun for us to do together.
Does anyone else bring their kids too?

I don't know, I worry about the chemicals. I would love to eventually but I don't know about those fumes.

Re: kids getting mani/pedis

I can't wait for El to be a bit older so she and I can go for mani/pedi. My brother who will be 10 year on June 19 have been getting mani/pedi since he was 6 year old. My mom said that she wants him to know that it is ok for guys to take care of their nails. He loves it.

ETA: He gets his nails cleaned up nicely and then they put clear polish on his toenails.

You know something funny, I used to wear a mask like the manicurist did when I was pregnant Chat Icon Chat Icon

My dd who is 12 has been getting her nails done since I can remember. She now also gets pedi's. Never dawned on me about the fumes. I don't tend to worry about things like that.

Re: kids getting mani/pedis

Once Marron is old enough I will bring her once in a while. I think it will be a nice day together. I don't want to get her in the routine of having it done all the time, though. I want it to be a treat, not something she expects or feels like she "needs". I don't want her to become too high-maintenance so young. Chat Icon

Re: kids getting mani/pedis

my SIL brings our neice who is 4 1/2 and she loves it! she only gets a polish change though. i think that's appropriate...wouldn't do the real thing out of fear of the germs if they don't properly sanitize the equipment and tub.

Re: kids getting mani/pedis

i won't be bringing my DD for many years. If she wants her nails polished I can do it at home for her. Maybe if there is a special occasion like a wedding or something I'd take her to go with me if she was at least 5 or 6. I don't want to start that habit too young. There are enough things to pay for as a kid is growing up!

I'm not going to mention it until she says something.
I only get pedicures, for most of the year I do it myself. She doesn't see me go so what she doesn't know...

Even then, I'd probably do it at home and only for special occassions/once in a blue moon.

JMO, but I'm not a fan of cosmetics on little girls. Also, afraid of the chemicals and germs in the salon... one of the reasons why I stopped going.
