The Pea loves painting her nails, and hardly a week goes by that she doesn't have a riot color on them. She paints her nails like she dresses -- with very bright colors and a lot of designs. The Pea loves putting little accents on her nails like silver tips or neon dots, but her works of art last about 2 hours. Once she starts drumming her nails on the table or using them to force open a snap-on lid or pry some Legos apart, the nails start chipping. It's all in a day's work for a 10-year old, so it doesn't bother me -- until she starts clamoring for a fancy nail job at a salon!
Fortunately there are so many cute press-on nails at our local drugstore. Check out these fun new nail charms sets from Popgrrl, which feature "3-D" designs that pop right out of the nail!

The line also features licensed candy brands which are the cutest gift for the sweetest girl including fruit scented Blow Pop, chocolate scented Tootsie Roll and Gummy Bears.
The new Popgrrl brand is the perfect combination of fashion and fun for tween girls everywhere. The PG Nail Charms original and candy licensed product line will be sold exclusively at Toys"R"Us stores and online at Toysrus.com beginning in February 2012. Popgrrl Nail Charms are for girls ages 6+ and cost $6-7.
The Sweet Tooth collection contains 10 press-on nails. Five of them look like the nails have been painted pink, sprinkled with multicolored candy sprinkles and topped off with a dollop of whipped cream. They look so cute! There is no way I could have gotten the detail so nicely done had I tried painting The Pea's nails by myself, and it would probably have cost a fortune to get them done in a salon.
The other five nails have teeny-tiny sweet treats like cupcakes, a donut and an ice cream cone, all in "3-D", on a pink background. Again, really adorable -- however, I think putting them all on the same hand actually detracts from each one because there's too much going on. In retrospect, I would place only one of the 3-D nails on each hand, and use the sprinkles design on the other 8 fingers -- but since there are only 5 of the sprinkles design, you could also just paint the other 8 fingers pink.
The nails fit The Pea really well, and they stayed put throughout the afternoon.
The Pea loves them!
