Children getting manicures and pedicures

How Young Is Too Young to Pay For Pedis?

I had a mani and pedi yesterday next to a six-year-old. I wasn’t at a sixth birthday party; I was at a nail salon, as a paying customer, having my nails done next to another paying customer who just happened to be six.

I found it a little freaky to be honest. It’s not that she was badly behaved or that I didn’t use to beg my mum to paint my toenails with my Tinkerbell polish when I was her age. It’s just that I know my mum would’ve drawn the line at paying for a professional pedi for me when I’d probably smudge it in the sandpit later.

I must’ve been 14 or so before I paid to have my nails done. Somehow I don’t think my six-year-old crush would’ve noticed if I had nicely painted nails or not. He was more interested in worms.

Do you think children should have professional manis and pedis?

At least the little kiddie wasn't getting acrylics....or was she? That's where I'd draw the line!
