Though I don't get to do it very often, I love to paint my nails. Aside from being pretty, it's fun to change up the color and try new things! I also love the look of cute little painted baby toes, but most nail polish has some pretty horrible ingredients that aren't good for little ones. The big three are dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, and toluene. Granted, these aren't great for adults, but I don't spend the day chewing on my hands and feet. Promise.
Excited to paint Ginny's nails with a safe, kid friendly product, I contacted Piggy Paint to team up for a review and giveaway! They sent us a Color Me Happy polish set to try out. Look at all of these fun colors to try out!
From left to right...Sometimes Sweet, Ice Cream Dream, Dragon Tears, Mac-n-Cheese Please, Tea Party for Two, Girls Rule!, Jazz It Up, and Forever Fancy.
Mom of two manicure loving little girls, Melanie Hurley developed Piggy Paint when she realized just how unhealthy and potentially dangerous regular polish was for children. Where there is a concerned Mom, there is a genius idea! She firmly believes that "...any flammable substance that could cause foam to disintegrate was unacceptable for children's fingernails."
I whole heartedly agree.
We tried out Piggy Paint and it's awesome! I wondered how something water-based could compare to the other polishes I've tried, but I couldn't even tell the difference. It went on smooth with no clumps and dried quickly without being streaky. Piggy Paint recommends their base and top coats for super staying power.
Though I did it while I rocked her to sleep one night it was even easy to put on Ginny's itty bitty, nearly non existent toe nails. Yes, I painted her nails by flashlight while she slept on my lap. She's too busy while she's awake to let me do it otherwise!
It's absolutely adorable and I can be confident that it is not dangerous for her little body. We chose matching "Forever Fancy" pedicures this time, but I'm sure we'll be changing it up often.
We all got into the nail polish action - even Charlie wanted a turn! He pulled off his socks and could hardly decide between the blue, green, and orange. Charlie was the real test of how fast this stuff dries. Two rounds of singing the ABCs and it was dry enough to let him go back to playing!
Why we love Piggy Paint:
- Water-based, nonflammable, hypoallergenic, and does not contain any harmful chemicals or solvents.
- Doesn't have that stinging, open a window stink other polish has.
- Safe for use on babies and during pregnancy.
- Made in the USA.
- The colors are fun and appealing to kids. There are even glitter, neon, and glow in the dark colors!
- Dries to a hard, chip resistant finish like any other polish.
- Lots of color themed sets for different holidays and seasons.
- There is even a low odor, acetone-free, biodegradable nail polish remover.
- Easily found at WalMart, WalMart.com, and children's boutiques nation wide.
