I don't see why you can't do that with boys. It worked for Coolio. Just tell them "Mommy needs this to stay sane." Ha ha. Or if any of them are young enough, they might just let you without putting up a fuss. My kid loves it when we paint his nails!
Thanks zt, but my hubby would flip out if I painted my kids fingernails or played with their hair. They like to get dirty and play with trains and trucks. If they do play with any of my Lalas they use them to fight with their G.I. Joes or Ben 10's.
