Would you allow your DS to paint his nails?

My DD is 4 and loves to have her nails painted. Everytime I do my DS who is 2 always asks to have his nails painted. I usually paint either 1 nail or his toenails. If I do allow him to have his nails painted my MIL always give me hell for it and acts like I'm trying to turn him gay. To me he is 2 and doesnt understand yet that painting your nails is usually something girls do. If he was in school I'd probably be more hesitant to do it but at his age I don't see it as a big deal. What do you think?

    Of  course. It's nail polish. I'd paint his fingers and toes. I'd do it even if he was in school.

    Your MIL is wrong, obviously.

    DS loves when I paint his nails (I usually do one or two) because he is sharing something with me. There is nothing wrong with it

    Sure! I just painted my DS's nails yesterday. He saw mommy and sissy doing it and he wanted to be a part of it. We aren't going anywhere and it will come off fast.

     Yes.  He does, many boys do now days.

    He's asked but changed his mind as he didn't like the feeling of it

    Yes. Anytime I paint my DD's, my DS wants his nails painted. He likes yellow.

    Well my 3yr old son has purple nails right now so I think that means I'm ok with it :) I was doing my nails and my daughter asked to have hers done so I did them. When my son saw his sisters nails he asked for his to be done too; but he was disappointed I didn't have orange nail polish.
