Molly and Me Nail Art

I adore my little niece Molly! She is three years old and loves to have her nails painted blue. When she first got her nails painted, she did not want to have anyone wash them for fear that the polish would come off. It took a bit of practice to demonstrate that nail polish can be removed and reapplied, but this girl has the routine DOWN. She's so awesome. I brought along some nail art supplies during my last visit to see family in January. Here is a record of our home nail salon adventure!

I made water transfer decals with her favorite characters from the Pixar Cars movie. She was thrilled with them!

Molly is ready to get her nails done! She had patience for a base coat, decals and topcoat. And she's only three! 

Our nail salon set up complete with nail polish remover, three colors of polish, a shot glass with water for the decals, and the decals I made for Molly. I did accidentally spill a tiny bit of nail polish remover on my brother's dining room table. Shhhh, he'll never know.

After applying the decals and letting them dry, it was time for Playdoh! If I mash enough Playdoh into my brother's table, he'll never notice the little patch of nail polish remover. Plus he'll probably blame it on Molls. Best. Aunt. Evar.

Here's Auntie's nails. I prepped my nails for the Seahawks game during my visit to see my family in Washington state. I've got a 12 for "12th Man" on my middle finger and Sally from Cars on my ring finger. The colors I used are butter LONDON Jaded Jack, OPI Ogre The Top Blue, and Sinful Colors Snow Me White. 

I can't wait for my next visit and nail salon party with my favorite 3-year old.


  1. Super cute! I love seeing people share their art with kids. That is just so cute that she did not want to wash her hands. Go Seahawks! Pullmanite here.

    1. Ha ha! Yeah, she is pretty amazing, and I am also so proud of her for figuring out that you can reapply the polish. She is a smart one! GO HAWKS!
