Love of nail art #ABCWednesdays

Ammu has always been fascinated by nail colour. Come weekends or holidays her first request would be to apply nail colour and mehendi !! And boy! she would be the happiest when I gave her the green signal πŸ˜€

There was a time a couple of years ago when she’d become so obsessed with nail colour, she would apply remove apply remove until she felt satisfied with the choice of colour. I had to resort to hiding anything nail related 😦 She even went to the extent of taking the nail enamel to the bathroom so she could avoid scrutiny. I was shocked when I learnt of this. Later I decided to just let her be and gave her access to all the stuff. Thankfully, slowly she got out of that habit.

But, of course, her love for nail colour is still very strong. Now, also into nail art since almost an year or more. She also downloaded some game that allows her to paint and decorate nails!

On one occasion she was bold enough to compliment a neighbour for her nail art. And, not surprisingly, she was invited to have her nails painted too!! She knows quite a bit about nail art supplies and techniques too. Such a contrast when compared to herΒ mom who didnt care much about nail colour or nail art.

I must admit though, that she is really good at it and has had good time with the different kinds of nail colours that are available these days, thanks to her indulgent chitti, who also loves her nails and nail colour. Its a aunt-neice combo thats hard to ignore πŸ˜€

These days, Ammu encourages to sport long nails and pampers me by painting them herself !! One lucky mom I am .. feel blessed πŸ™‚

  1. Well well well she is enjoying what she is doing.. and that’s the main part.

    God bless the little one and yes you mommy let yourself get more pampered…πŸ˜€πŸ˜€


    1. haha true Bikram! I was only worried when it’d become an obsession. Now, thankfully that phase is over and I’m enjoying it with her πŸ™‚


  2. Lol! It’s the same story here. N has some 18 -20 nail paints and not a single one bought by me. Indulgent mass/buas here. There are these fake nails that can be stuck on and painted – Lord! how she was enamoured of those! These kids are growing up too fast.


    1. Wow! yes.. she had also downloaded some app with which she could try out nail art and stuff. I let her be as it was a virtual thing.. now she’s gotten over it too πŸ™‚


  3. Awww, that is so sweet! I am waiting for the days when my daughter and I can paint our nails together!

    I am not much of a nail paint person, but getting interested in nail art of late. Would love it if Ammu could do some nail art for me some time!


Thoughts? I'd love to hear :)
