As I happened to take leave to see my OBGYN last Friday, I decided to bring her along for my regular manicure session at my usual nail salon.
For her pedicure, she chose her favourite colour pink!
|Her first professional pedicure!|
For her manicure, she chose a super bright red nail polish, which was child-friendly and non-toxic.
|Her first ever manicure!|

She patiently sat through the whole process without moving much at all. The things us girls will do for vanity! *laughs*
She did finally lose her patience when it came time for the nails to be dried under a dryer.

|It took a lot of nagging to get her to keep her nails in this position (and even then she couldn't)!|
I can't really blame her though 'cos even I have no patience to wait for my nails to dry under a dryer (which is one of the reasons why I prefer gelish), much less a very active 3 year old! After what seemed like forever, her nails were done!
|Pretty little red fingernails|
(which got ruined just hours after the manicure >_< *sigh*)
And then it was waiting for me to finish and she was of course super impatient. Kept bugging me to go so I had to give her something to eat to keep her occupied while my manicurist worked her usual magic.

I know people say how gelish nail polish is damaging to the nails and skin but I love my beautiful nails too much to care! As they say in Chinese, 女人爱美不要命 (literal translation: women love beauty don't want their lives)! *laughs*
Really enjoyed our mother-daughter time together! I might bring my girl with me again.. if I can find a way to keep her occupied while I do my manicure =)
