Would You Paint Your Son's Nails?

Tori Spelling's, 4 year old son Liam, stepped out the other day in L.A with silver nail polish. We have seen fashion tots like Kingston and Zuma rocking the boy nail polish trend, so Liam is just jumping on the fashion bandwagon like his peers. This trend first came to light when a picture of J.Crew's creative director Jenna Lyons showed her painting her toddler son Beckett's toenails with bright pink polish. The picture had a caption saying, "Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon." A bunch of people had some not so nice things to say about it, even suggesting that she should put some money aside for future therapy. Hm. So is this really a big deal? Or are moms, simply just having fun with their sons.

Super glam mom Jennifer Lopez doesn't seem to think anything is wrong with it. She recently told People magazine, "He wants to paint his nails too. Because for him, it's just paint. He's like, 'I want the blue!'" Lopez says, laughing. "Then Marc is like, 'Why are Max's nails painted?!' But he won't sit still so it's only like two nails." Seems harmless I guess, although I am not sure I would be so eager to jump on this trend myself. Would you paint your son's nails? Let us know if you think it's innocent fun, or fuel for future therapy sessions.
