It came as no surprise to me when, a few weeks ago, she wanted me to paint her nails when I did mine.
I didn’t think for a moment that she would sit still and let me do them, but she did 🙂 And when we had finished with her fingers, she wanted me to do her toes 🙂 So we did.
The next day, she had rubbed most of the polish off and I quickly realized that I had no way to remove the rest. Yes, I have remover. However, I didn’t want to use harsh polish remover on my baby who likes to put everything in her mouth. I do mean everything.
So, there the polish stayed.
I got to looking around the internet and came upon Piggy Paint. Great! Natural paints I thought 🙂 I didn’t expect them to be what I was use to (color selection), but I thought I’d take a look.
The colors were way better than I could have expected! They are pretty and shimmery! Check out these colors!How amazing that I can get not only beautiful colors to use on my little girl, but that they are safe for her too. According to their site, Piggy Paints are *Low Odor, *Non-toxic, *Water-based formula & *Hypoallergenic. They are completely free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, BPA, Ethyl and acetone.
They also offer a no acetone, low odor polish remover made from natural ingredients. (This is so huge for me!)
Check out this comparison done between traditional polishes and Piggy Paint.
After seeing this comparison, I knew that I needed something else to use on my little girl. No way could I knowingly use traditional paints on her. And for that matter, me!
I contacted Piggy Paint and they kindly sent me a polish and remover to try. My daughter was thrilled when it arrived.
I followed the directions that came with the polish. I washed her hands, painted her nails and then used a blow dryer (on warm) to set the polish. That part is optional, but I did it to help dry it faster.
Here is my baby girl showing off her Piggy Paints 🙂
I’d also like to mention that after dinner that night, my daughter decided to chomp at her food *with* her fingers in her mouth. I was very happy to know that her polish was safe!
I love these paints and can’t wait to order some more colors (for me too!).
