What can my little sister get at a nail salon?

My sister is 11 going on 12 years old, and we were thinking about getting her a pedicure and possibly a manicure for her birthday. She wants something more grown-up and special than just a regular polish. We thought about acrylic nails, but decided that might not the best option for her since she was so young and her nails couldn't handle it. The expenses were also very high. Are there any ideas of what you think would be elegant and mature, but still appropriate for her age? Should we get the acrylics? Keep in mind that we are for sure doing her toes, but we just MAYBE will get her fingers.

How about some cute designs on her nails. Flowers or something else age appropriate.

Nothing about 12 year old is elegant and mature, or should be I think....

I want her to feel special and grown up. I want her nails to be nice so she can feel self confident. I'm not talking about anything like THAT; I just was hoping to get something more mature than like pink nail polish or something.

Let the girl get her toes and fingers done, you dont have to do fake nails ( mostly cause my mom wont let me and im 13 ) For my 12th birthday I went to get my nails done at the salon. Ask her if she wants to take a friend to take to though; other wise she will just be sitting in chair doing nothing. hope this helps :D

Well like... what should we get her? She said she doesn't want them to just do polish because it's kind of babyish. Maybe like... something more special but not as expensive or intense as acrylic nails...?

You can have them paint flowers on the nails; put gem stone on them, or if you REALY want something mature but noticeable I sugest doing french tips maybe?
Personly I wouldnt let her do fake nails though; you have to be very gentle with you hands ( no rough houseing ) and when you do break them off it hurts ALOT.

Maybe gel nails? They last longer and they come in like patterns and glittery colors :) It might me a little more expensive than a regular manicure/ pedicure though :)

They last probably a week?maybe two if your careful and don't pick at them, I'm not sure if you want her to do it, but they put your nails under a UV light and put a gel polish on :) Sorry I didn't answer sooner I didn't see that you commented :)
