Today’s review and giveaway is for Piggy Paint, a water based, non toxic, all natural nail polish that is “as natural as mud.” I was sent bright pink, “Forever Fancy,” purple “Girl’s Rule,” and a bottle of Nail Polish Remover. I was pretty impressed when I got the samples, there was no skimping on quality and vibrancy in order to make this product all natural! The color of the polish is bright and has subtle little eye-catching sparkles! What I was most impressed with, was the absence of the sickening smell you usually get with polish, Piggy Paint is refreshingly odor free!!
My nieces and I had a Piggy Paint party! Everyone was so excited about it, and eagerly lined up to get their piggys painted. The polish goes on very smoothly, leaving no bubbles or bumps. It didn’t take long to dry, so the girls were soon up and running, that is kind of a big deal when it is made for young girls!
One of my favorite things about the nail polish remover, is the child safety lid! I have never seen any other brand of remover instill that precaution on their bottles. The remover is also low odor, contains no acetone, and is also eco-friendly. Piggy Paint was created by Melanie Hurley, mother of 2 girls. Here is the shocking story that lead to her search for non-toxic nail polish and prompted her to create Piggy Paint:
“One day while we were painting nails over a foam plate, my daughter dropped a glob of her solvent-based polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and “ate” through the plate. I looked in dismay at the hole in the plate and decided to test all of her other “kid” polishes on the foam. Within minutes, ALL of the solvent-based polishes began to bubble and eventually left big holes in the plate (Click to see plate). From that day on, I decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for my children’s fingernails, which would inevitably end up in their mouths.
My quest was on, and Piggy Paint was born. As you may have guessed, our polish is NOT flammable and sits beautifully on the unaffected foam. We hope you enjoy this 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!”
