One of the greatest things about being a mom of a daughter is that you get to fantasize about all the girly things you'll get to teach her, like how you should never mix plaids, or wear socks with sandals. OK, those things should be taught to both genders, actually.
But one thing that's pretty exclusive to girls (unless you're a little boy with older sisters) is cosmetics. Hair styling, makeup, nail polish ... little girls more often than not want to be just like mom. Beyonce and Blue Ivy definitely fall into the mold here. The singer posted a picture of her and Blue's matching manicures, but she should be careful about how much is too much, too soon.
Beyonce is one sexy mama, and her long vampy-red nails certainly reflect that. But is the color really that appropriate for her toddler daughter?
Let's totally set aside the fact that Blue's hands seem ginormous for a 2-and-a-half-year-old (her parents are tall, mmmkay? She's going to be tall. Genetics and all.) and talk about the color.

That is some very red red. Painting your toddler's nails is already sort of controversial, but dang, shouldn't she have stuck to pink or purple or blue or green or basically any other color than one that evokes images of Pretty Woman?
Bright red nail polish has a reputation, is all I'm saying. And it may not be appropriate for toddlers.
What do you think about Blue Ivy's manicure?
