I first learned about Piggy Paint two years ago when my daughter was pregnant. She loves nail enamel but was cautioned by her doctor to limit her contact with chemicals. Because she was craving a little glamor and we were both concerned for her health and the health of the baby, I purchased Piggy Paint for her. My daughter has been a Piggy Paint lover ever since and oh, she loves the name! 🙂
Piggy Paint was created by Mom, Melanie Hurley who’s two daughter’s loved to have their fingernails polished. Like all moms, Melanie was concerned about the effects of toxic chemicals in these polishes, especially because her young daughters would put their fingers in their mouths. The smell of traditional polishes alone was enough to scare Melanie!
One day while painting her daughter’s nails over a foam plate, Melanie dropped a glob of her solvent-based polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and “ate” through the plate. As you can see traditional, solvent-based kids polishes ate a hole in the foam plate within minutes! Melanie’s quest was on, and Piggy Paint was born!
I was Blessed to receive two bottles of Piggy Paint for review. Piggy Paint Non-Toxic, Natural Nail Polish is available in a large assortment of fun colors and psst.. big girls love it too!
My daughter and I both like feminine, soft nail polish colors for summer. When I told her I was reviewing Piggy Paint she was really excited! I told her I would share! 🙂 Piggy Paint applies smoothly and evenly and dries to a shiny finish pretty quickly. My Piggy Paint came with an application instructions card which I found handy. Some neat tips? Apply 2 or 3 thin coats instead of 1 thick coat. Air dry for 60 seconds and for maximum chip resistance blow dry polished nails for 1-2 minutes with hair dryer set on low setting.
- Water-based Formula
- Dries to a hard, durable finish
Piggy Paint has a few product lines in addition to their regular Piggy Paint that sound really nice. Project Earth is their line of neon polishes created especially with tweens in mind. The adult line, Piggy Paint Refined is comprised of sophisticated colors that can be worn day or evening and are even safe to wear during pregnancy. Piggy Paint even remembered Fido with their Puppy Paint Nail Polish!
