Sugar & spice
… and all things nice, that’s what little girls are made of. Apparently. Well at least I hope they are, with my second child set to be Team Pink. And with all things girlie in mind, those of you with daughters who like to borrow Mummy’s make-up might be interested in a new junior-stylista-friendly nail polish available from Melijoe.
Melijoe normally does gorgeous high-end designer kids wear, but they’re now launching kids cosmetics, too, starting with Little BU chemical-free, non-toxic nail varnish that washes off with soap and water (hopefully that means it also comes off easily if she spills it on the carpet or decides the walls need redecorating). Genius! It’s 100% water-based and suitable for children, pregnant women and vegans too.
If you’re worried about your little fashionista’s precious pinkies wearing adult make-up (or, more likely, you’re not overly chuffed when she wants to borrow your Chanel Le Vernis), this is the solution. Gotta love our stylish French mamas for coming up with this one… There’s even a range of nail stickers so she can go to town customising her talons.
Available in 19 summer shades, £9.95 each, melijoe.com/uk.
