Welcoming Spring with Piggy Paint ~Plus~ #Giveaway (4/11)


I remember how thrilled I was when I found out I was pregnant with a daughter during my first pregnancy, because I was going to have a little princess to doll up and accessorize. She did not have any hair to play with for over a year and a half, so although I had fun putting on cute outfits and trying to keep headbands on her I wanted to do something more. After seeing a friend’s little one with painted nails I itched to do the same. One weekend when my sister-in-law had came to town for a visit when my daughter was a few months old, I held my little one while she painted her little piggies an adorable shade of pink.

I did not want to paint her fingernails because she put her fingers in her mouth and the strong odor of conventional nail polish screams all kinds of “toxic”, and I still felt a little leery of painting her toes so I did not paint them again for quite a while. When I first heard of Piggy Paint a few years ago I was thrilled that I could doll up my daughter without feeling guilty about the chemicals and toxins that are in regular nail polish and it was something that I could also use, especially when I was pregnant. I am sure many of you have seen the styrofoam plate visual that shows regular nail polish dissolving part of the plate, but a small natural parenting store I visited when my daughter was a infant had one on display next to their Piggy Paint and it affirmed my desire to use non toxic alternatives for my daughter.

Now that my little girl is almost five she is always wanting to paint her nails and play beauty shop. She insists on painting her nails herself and not only does she do a pretty good job of painting them, she always makes sure to use a towel to avoid making a mess. We have gotten a few bottles of Piggy Paint over the years, but we were excited to add new colors to our collection with our new Color Me Happy set. The bright, cheerful colors are perfect for spring and they will surely be a hit for our guests to use at my daughter’s birthday party later this month. I also love the box this set comes it, because it has room to store our other shades of Piggy Paint.

Last but not least, I could not help but notice how well our new colors coordinated with some of little sister’s newborn diapers. Perhaps we should paint each of her toes a different shade to match her diapers! She will be one posh little newborn and it will be fun to be able to paint her piggies often. What is one of your favorite things about having little girls?
