Piggy Paint


Believe it or not, I’ve never painted #1’s fingernails or toenails. I guess it never dawned on me (bad mommy, I know). I didn’t want her to be high maintenance.

When I heard about Piggy Paint, I knew this was the product to use for #1’s first mani/pedi.

Piggy Paint is NOT flammable and is a 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!

Serious Tested:
Piggy Paint sent us Tea Party for Two, a bright blue color. It was so fun and looked adorable on #1’s piggies and fingernails. They also have a polish remover which is non-toxic and odorless. It worked really well at removing polish (especially the polish that got on her toes!)

Of course, #1 wanted mommy’s toes painted, too.

The directions say to apply two thin coats of paint and allow them to dry completely; followed by a drying using a hair dryer to set the polish.

We did this on all of our toes and her hands. #1’s chipped off a lot faster than mine did. However, she was pretty wiggly during the drying process. Plus I previously had polish on my toes. So before we started, I had to use polish remover on my toes. I think that also gave the polish a good clean surface to stick to.

We love our Piggy Paintand can’t wait to try out more fun colors now that we have a safe alternative to normal fingernail polish.
