I painted Sym’s nails this afternoon, they are very sloppy here but I wanted to take pictures right away because I figured she would chip them quickly. It was also hard to keep the polish on her nails because she’s chewed them down to little nubs She’s pretty sensitive/embarrassed about them and some of her friends have been teasing her, but I’m hoping if I keeping painting them she’ll stop.
If she had her way she would have done them green-yellow-purple-blue-orange, but I’m a rainbow order purist.

I thought it would be fun to do them in a pastel rainbow, sort of spring/Easter-like, but the whole time I had to listen to her complaining about how it wasn’t a REAL rainbow because there wasn’t any red. Ugh, really? When I was a kid my mom NEVER painted my nails. I also had to walk ten miles to school. In the snow. Uphill both ways!
