The first time I tried to paint my DDs toenails was when she was about 4 months old. My SIL had come to visit and I had her paint them while I was nursing, because I couldn’t get DD to hold still any other time and wasn’t “super mom” enough to paint them myself while nursing. That was the only time I had painted them again until this month and DD is now 16 months old. One of the reasons was not being able to have her still enough to paint them without getting polish EVERYWHERE and the other reason was I had this guilt even the first time I painted her nails, because I new how harsh and toxic the stuff really was. Yet, polish looks so darn cute!
After 12-months of torment I discovered Piggy Paint!! Now I can be at rest knowing my DD’s piggies are perfectly polished yet it is non-toxic and “natural as mud”. Piggy Paint is made from water and other natural ingredients so it will take a few coats to look fabulous and this can be done in a few sittings for toddlers. We were given the Candy Coated polish to review, which coincidentally matched my toe nail polish, so DD was excited to be just like Mama. She would come to me asking to have “pretties” on her toes and sometimes I would just add a coat to a few toes at a time. I did not blow dry them to make a chip resistant finish, so it chips and fades off as she scurries around throughout the week, but it’s a fun activity again when we sit down to repaint them ! Older girls and adults will want to take the extra step to blow dry the polish if you want to be chip free for longer.
And Piggy Paint is not just for little ones, but is great for moms too! Whether you’re pregnant and concerned about toxic fumes and materials, or just an eco friendly mama, piggy paint is a fun, safe polish for girls of all ages. Piggy Paint also has a safe, odorless, hypoallergenic nail polish remover (thankfully) with a safety cap, because my little houdini discovers if wherever I hide it and runs around the house with it. It is made especially for their polishes and a 30 second soak and wipes clean with a cotton ball.
We love our girl colors here at our house, but how fun would it be to get some orange and black polish for halloween or red and green for the holidays. And you’ll want to follow Piggy Paint on Twitter and Facebook to be in the know about their monthly specials and sales.
