Twinsie Tuesday: Nails Polished By Someone Else

Hi. How's Tuesday treating you so far?  It's pretty rainy in Jersey, but I'm just glad that it's not snow.  I'm so looking forward to Spring!

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is "Nails Polished By Someone Else".  This was totally fun!  For my manicure, I recruited my oldest son (who is 9) to paint my nails.  Now this is something I never thought was possible- I am the mother of all boys, and even though I wouldn't have it any other way, there was always a tiny part of me that couldn't believe I wouldn't have a little "mini me" sitting by my side, doing our nails together (sigh....ya, because I'm sure all you mothers of girls just sit around doing this all day long, right??  Well you do in my head!).  This Twinsie project opened up a funny interaction between Liam & I.  I said, "Hey, come sit at the table. I need you to do something".  He plopped down and asked, "what?".  "Paint my nails".  I handed him the bottle. The most gigantic, adorable, crooked smile flashed across his face. "Really?!" he asked.

Here's his work.  One dabbed on layer of Essie She's Picture Perfect:

He did a super job considering this was his first time ever holding a nail polish brush!  The name of the polish is great because although it's not a "picture perfect" paint job, the giggles and conversation we had doing this together were pretty perfect  ;-)

  1. He did a great job for his first time! So nice that you guys had fun together doing it.

  2. That is so sweet Maribeth! Liam Did a fab job!!

  3. Awww so cute!!! :D He did a really great job!!! :D

  4. He did a great job! I love the fact that he enjoyed doing it, what a touching story!

  5. I think this story is adorable, and such a great way for a Mom & son to spend time together, in a unique way too!

  6. how fun! Loved this and for being a boy doing this for his first time...awesome job!!

  7. Aw, he did an amazing job! Seriously, best first-timer I've ever seen. I love that you sprung it on him too, and yes, the polish name makes the whole manicure about eight different flavours of perfect. ;o)

  8. Aww, this is such a sweet post, Maribeth. :) So cute!

  9. Great job there! And one of my favorite polishes ;)

  10. Liam did this? Seriously? Well, and don't take this the wrong way, but his work is better than some girls that I've seen, lol! Great job & even greater colour selection - he knows his mama!

    PS: as the mother of a girl, I can tell you that we spend more time butting heads than painting each other's nails! As a matter of fact, I've painted Anna's nails zillions of times, but she's yet to paint mine - and she's almost 19!

  11. This turned out nice and bonus points for having such a fun time doing it.
