Pretty Nails: Piggy Paint Review

My daughter will be two in March. She is *so* girly. It is adorable. She loves to do what Mommy does. She loves her shoes, her bows and her clothes.

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!).

As a special bonus Piggy Paint is offering one lucky reader a $15 gift code and a discount to our readers!

My three month old loves to grab my fingers and put them into his mouth. I would love to have some pretty nails for myself — but most importantly they have to be safe for him.
We love to live green!

I do not drop a comment, but after browsing through
a few of the responses on Pretty Nails: Piggy
Paint Review. I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Is it simply me or do some of these remarks appear like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I’d like to follow you.
Would you make a list of every one of your social community sites like your twitter feed,
Facebook page or linkedin profile?
