  1. Simple gift for 6 year old girl says:

    My grand daughter is into having me polish her nails….well this last thanksgiving she brought over little tiny pink and rainbow hearts to put on the nails as well. She was just joyous having these little hearts added on. We first put on a coat of pale purple then the little hearts on top of that coat and after the hearts were all placed on her little nails came the clear polish. They also like Avons Princess Lip Gloss big time. Also, a Princess brush and fancy headbands and pony-o’s. One last idea — A battery powered toothbrush. Best investment for keeping those pearly whites their entire life.
