Pamper Your Piggies: Mommy & Me Manis

This little piggy went to… the nail salon?  My little piggies haven’t danced in the door of a nail salon since my technician buffed away too much skin and left me with a painful raw spot.  He covered it with a liquid band aid but it hurt to walk on it for weeks.  While I miss the massage chair, pretty polish designs, and overall pampering I’m not a glutton for punishment.  There is no way I’m going to tote my toddler to the salon for the same reasons.  Not to mention the cost for a polish that will chip off her nails in a matter of days!

Daddy painting daughter's nails

BUT my daughter loves to have her nails painted.  I mean loves it!  She’ll point them out to the cashier at the grocery store.  A stranger at the mall.  Anyone who will listen!  If you follow me on Instagram you may have saw the picture I posted last night of her daddy “painting” her nails.  He was using a clear, glittery, oily type of pretend polish.  He’s not brave enough to try with the real stuff and I don’t blame him!    

Piggy Paint Colors

Even when we use real, safe, kid-friendly polishes they still manage to chip ever so sightly within a few days.  My semi-OCD daughter will have none of that so we end up painting her nails over and over and over before we finally remove it completely and leave her with bare nails for a few weeks.  Which makes me sad because she enjoys painted nails so much and she likes to “look like Mommy.”

Mommy and Me Jamberry Nails

I may have found the perfect solution for her nail obsession. Mommy & Me nail wraps by Jamberry!  Now, I haven’t tried this myself yet but I’ve ordered them and I can’t wait to!  The picture above is of a friend’s daughter trying them out for the first time.  Cute, right?  My friend just started selling these wraps and because they look so great on her that I had to buy some for myself.

Gingham Nails

Check out the ones I ordered called Gingham and Berries.  Can you picture these on tiny toes running through the grass this summer?  So stinking cute!

I’ll update you with pictures of my daughter’s new fancy mani-pedi soon and quite a few nail wrap combinations of my own too.  I couldn’t help but buy a bunch, they look so fun!  If you want to have a little Mother/Daughter time for Mother’s Day this looks like a great, affordable way to do so.  Plus, I hear that they’ll last for weeks on little one’s toes and a few weeks on fingers.  You can’t beat that!

Here’s my friend’s website {that I’m not making any commission on what-so-ever!}: Jamberry Nails.

Happy early Mother’s Day!!

    Jamberry nail wraps stay on fingers for 2 weeks and toes for 6 weeks!! They are $15/sheet BUT you get 2 manicures and 2 pedicures out of ONE sheet! They are so much more affordable then nail salon prices. Try them. You won’t regret it!

  2. These are adorable!

    How adorable. Not so sure my daughter wouldn’t scrape at them to take them off. She loves getting her nails clipped though… so maybe she is ready.

  7. My girls and I love Piggy Paint.. I use it too.
