Girlie Nails by Fing'rs Gives the Budding Beauty Junkie Practice

My daughter loves nothing more than to go with me and get her nails and toes done. Thank goodness my nail tech loves her and indulges her with whatever she wants, or else I'd have some problems. But one thing I've obviously never let her do (she's 6!) is put on acrylic nails. This is as problematic to her as my refusal to pierce her ears, so imagine how thrilled she was to get her hands on Girlie Nails!

These are similar to the Lee Press On Nails that we played with in the 80s. The concept is absolutely the same, the only difference being is that these are for girls, and are sized accordingly. Some of these little nails were so tiny, I had a hard time keeping ahold of them! However, they were super easy to press on, and my daughter just thought they were marvelous. I'm sure I felt that way about my Lee Press Ons, too.

However, if you're looking for longevity, you aren't going to find it. They are cute and fun, but like the Lee Nails of yore, they don't stay on worth a darn. Especially on a six year old who loves to go to the beach. I'm told that they also "stick to your hair," and "they fall off sometimes."

That doesn't mean that we won't be buying them again, though. Oh, no. I'm sure we will go through many packs of these before the tween years are done. And to think that I'm only just beginning. Fun. No, really. Super fun.

Girlie Nails are available at mass retailers, drug chains, and discount stores nationwide. I found mine at Rite-Aid and Walgreens. Visit the website at Girlie Nails to see some of the cute styles, including the ones above that actually change color in the sun, which was a huge deal in our house.

yay...I can finally say that I remember Lee press on nails and that Bonnie Bell peel off polish. You could not tell I wasn't a big girl when my nails were done:)

Girl, I used to love my Lee Press Ons! I might have singlehandedly kept that company in business!
