Momma Told Me: Don't chew on your nails!

Every young girl wants to be just like her mother. From sneaking anti-wrinkle cream from Momma's nightstand to smearing lipstick across tiny lips and daubing pots of vivid color onto rosy cheeks; one thing we want most is our mother's beauty. And one of the best things, perhaps, about being a young woman is the freedom to wear twirly dresses, and the encouragement to express ones-self with pretty colors and plenty of sparkles. And, perhaps, while I suspect Sabrina (11) will be well into the end of her teenage years before she is allowed to touch any form of facial cosmetics, nail polish is widely accepted as a form of self expression for girls of any age.
Unfortunately, the above is a common scene in our household, where Sabrina can often be found gnawing the chipped lacquer off her fingers. We're careful to screen the chemicals and contents of her nail polish, but I can't imagine the consumption of any nail color is considered healthy, Nor is it ladylike to be seen with one's fingers in one's mouth constantly. I don't know what goes on during play-yard breaks at school but a manicure does not last more than an afternoon in our household, and somehow this is what walks out of the car after school each day.
#BoPoFun with Bo-Po Peel and Wash Of Single Day Nail Color.
I remember, when I was a young girl, there was a product around in the 80's that featured a revolutionary kid-safe peel-off formula. If I recall right it had great intentions, but a strong odor and a dodgy execution in peel-ability. Sadly, this product was not around for long, and disappeared until it's retro revival recently. Worx Toys recently acquired the name and rights to the beloved children's polish and reformulated the concept to be longer lasting and more effective with 10 new hues and tints for the #BoPoFun can continue! The spill resistant containers and quick drying formula has quickly gained popularity among mothers and daughters.

Sold individually or in twin packs, we recently were sent a sample of two Bo-Po polishes in 'OMG' and 'Day Camp,' or ketchup and mustard as Sabrina refers to them. We generally do not let Sabrina wear 'adult' colors like black and red, but this red was a very vibrant and playful kid-color that passed 'daddy' approval. We found ourselves wishing the polish had an equally fun fruity scent as the colors it came in, but were glad to note what odor the lacquer did have was minimal and non-offensive. The wide application brush was easy enough for Sabrina to use on her own, and the color applied evenly in 2 coats, drying in 3 minutes.
Of course when you tell a child that their nail polish is peel-able, all they want to do is peel it! After the first 'sample' run, I could see Sabrina spending hours painting and peeling her nails. (An ingenious ploy on the manufacturer's part!) I didn't mind, however, as long as her nails were being cleaned outside her mouth, she could peel to her heart's content! We did find that three coats seemed to be the magic number for a smooth peel, though 1-2 coats could serve for a day's wear and scrub off with a gentle soap and water rinse. I have no doubt there will be more #BoPoFun in our future!

What Daughter Says: Stop chewing and start peeling with Bo-Po.

  1. That is really cool! Ever since I was a kid, I have never been able to keep nail polish on my fingernails either. I end up biting it off, and who knows what nasty chemicals have made their way into my body because of it.
