I just love that word - phalanges. It's fun to say. But technically this bling isn't on the phalanges. That would imply that it's actually on the fingers and toes. But that's a much "funner" word to say than toenails or fingernails, right? So we'll stick with phalanges.
I realize it's not summer time anymore but one should still keep up on their grooming. Right? So when my daughter wanted me to paint her nails this seemed like so much fun. And it's super easy (which is always a plus in our home.)
I found some glitter. You can use any kind of glitter, I don't think it matters.
My daughter loves the color aqua right now. I think she just likes to say aqua so that's why she likes it. Hmmmm, where does she get those little quirks???
Anyways... we painted a coat of aqua fingernail polish on her little phalanges. When the nail polish was still wet we dipped her fingers in the glitter. Simple as that!
We blew on the glitter to get the loose glitter off and then painted a coat of clear nail polish over the top.
For some strange reason my daughter doesn't like her toes and her fingers to be the same color (I have no idea why) so we put a coat of orange nail polish on her toes and did the same steps. She LOVED them!
Heck, I loved them! So we did my toes next =o)
