Beauty Arts & Crafts: Kid’s Manicure Nail Template – Free Printable With Realistic Skintones

Does your little girl love to play with nail polishes and manicures? For a while during college, I spent a lot of time creating custom 3d nail designs because I loved doing nails. I can guarantee my toddler daughter now will eventually see me with some pretty fanciful done DIY nails and want to copy mommy. But she’s really just a baby after all and I don’t want her to wear fake nails or even wear nail polish. Plus the biggest issue I have with kids playing around too much with the nail polishes is the scent that polishes give off. Even natural nail polishes have an almost toxic scent.

So I tried to think of a solution that would tie her over. We love arts and crafts here, so how about a printable manicure template instead?! That way she can use the template to at least create the design, plan, and also choose her colors. Anything to minimize and delay opening a bottle of smelly polish.
