I wouldn't do it. Nail polish is full of toxins. If your baby sucks her fingers or toes then she may be ingesting those toxins.

I would always say that with stuff like this it's best to know the wishes of the person it affects. She's only 6 months though so she's not in a position to consent or refuse.

Since it's not a permanent choice, I doubt if it makes much difference if she has her nails painted occasionally. But I would like to put in these weblinks for you to refer to:
