My niece loves to get her nails done—in theory. Once she gets over the initial excitement, the reality of having to sit without moving for half an hour takes its toll, and she either falls asleep (the best case scenario) or gets antsy and complains about being itchy, overtired, or hungry, or a combination of the three.
Luckily for us, at-home nail art has exploded over the past couple years (thank you, Pinterest), and there are no shortage of easy DIY nail art ideas you can accomplish at home with your kids. These easy DIY nail designs do double duty: They look adorable on little fingers yet ladylike on the rest of us. Best of all, you don’t need to hit the nail salon at all. Try these fun nail art tutorials with your daughter or niece in the comfort of your home—since short attention spans can sometimes get in the way, you’ll be able to move on to the next project without having dropped $40 at the nail salon.
Speaking of manis, have you seen this hilarious viral video of a toddler, her Barbies, and a potential mani-mess? It’s way too cute!
