Sometimes you just need to make time for your nails.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has a busy schedule. Just look at his Instagram and you'll see he's always balancing acting jobs, working on his fitness, and spending time with his adorable family. So when he was headed out the door to get to work, his daughter made it clear that he needed a little pampering--even if it means he would be running late.

In an adorable photo that features Johnson seated at a tiny table with his two-year-old daughter Jasmine painting his nails, Johnson explains in the caption how the nail session all happened.

"Me: Come here baby, give daddy a kiss I gotta go to work.

Jazzy: But daddy you need your nails painted.

Me: Sorry baby, daddy's gotta go to wor.."

As we all know, kids can be persistent and little Jazzy worked her magic on her Daddy.

"Jazzy: No daddy you really need your nails painted - as she looks up at me with her mama's gorgeous blue eyes.

Me: Yes, you're absolutely right - daddy needs his nails painted," he wrote.

He also added the hashtags #PapaBearPriorities and #NoRemoverNeeded. We love that Johnson went on with his day just sporting the fancy manicure his daughter gave him. Looks like she started with a red nail polish but was changing up the color for each nail--very trendy.

Clearly, his fans are loving this photo because it has almost 5 million likes and thousands of comments from other parents who have crazy manicures from their kids as well.

Johnson is a proud dad to two other daughters as well. He and his girlfriend Lauren Hashian are also parents to 5-month-old daughter Tiana Gia Johnson and his oldest daughter is 17-year-old Simone from a previous relationship.

Apparently, with that many women in his life, Johnson has learned the importance of a great manicure from one of his girls.
