At a birthday party that Zoë attended, the girls got their nails painted.
Of course, she chose a different color for each hand.
Of course, she chose ‘sparkly’ colors.


When I was a little girl, I used to want to wear nail polish and make up, too.  I would lock myself in the bathroom and help myself to my aunt’s make-up kit or try on her nail polish.  When someone would knock on the door asking what I was up to, I would quickly take off the nail polish with a nail polish remover or smear Pond’s cold cream all over my face to wipe off the make-up.   Then I would innocently walk out like I didn’t sneak into my aunt’s make-up kit or nail polish stash. 

I outgrew my love affair with make-up and nail polish.  I mean, I still ‘like’ them, but I am not crazy gaga over them anymore like I was when I was a little girl.  I’m hoping Zoë will, too.

When would you consider a girl “old enough” to start wearing nail polish?
