I was recently contacted to review Piggy Paint, a safe nail polish for kids! I was very excited to review for them, because I like to paint my daughters toe nails, but was always hesitant to do so because I was not sure how “safe” it would be for her.
We received a Piggy Paint in Candy-Coated. It is a really pretty lavender color. I painted my toes as well as my daughters toes (piggies 🙂 ) and her nails. Of course my son was pouting in the corner, so I had to do his piggies too! Sigh! At least the weather is getting a bit chillier, so my son will be wearing socks and shoes now, LOL! I love how there is absolutely no smell! I love how it goes on smoothly and dries fairly quickly. I love that it is as natural as mud! We also received the nail polish remover. When I opened it I was so shocked that it has NO SMELL! No harmful fumes! Wow, I am very impressed and even more so impressed by the way it takes off nail polish! So easy and works just as well as the smelly nail polish removers I have been using for years. I am sold! How wonderful! Safe for us and safe for our environment, you can’t go wrong!
About Piggy Paint (taken off their site):
My name is Melanie Hurley, founder of Piggy Paint™. I am a stay-at-home mom with two very fancy little girls, ages 2 and 4, who love to have their fingernails painted. I’ve always hated the thought of my kiddos putting their hands in their mouths after I painted their nails with traditional kid polishes. Not only did the ingestion of the chemicals worry me, but the smell nearly left me light-headed after painting two sets of fingernails and toenails.
One day while we were painting nails over a foam plate, my daughter dropped a glob of her solvent-based polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and “ate” through the plate. I looked in dismay at the hole in the plate and decided to test all of her other “kid” polishes on the foam. Within minutes, ALL of the solvent-based polishes began to bubble and eventually left big holes in the plate. From that day on, I decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for my children’s fingernails, which would inevitably end up in their mouths.
My quest was on, and Piggy Paint™ was born. As you may have guessed, our polish is NOT flammable and sits beautifully on the unaffected foam. We hope you enjoy this water-based polish that is specially formulated of natural ingredients. Finally, a kid-friendly polish without the accompanying drawbacks of traditional polishes. It is free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone… and made in the USA!
