Piggy Paint Review

Piggy Paint was founded by a stay-at-home-mom, Melanie Hurley, after she saw the harsh chemicals that were in regular nail polish. She worried about her girls putting their hands in their mouths after she painted them with traditional kid polishes. Not only did the ingestion of the chemicals worried her, but the smell nearly left her light-headed. One day, while they were painting their nails, over a foam plate, her daughter dropped a glob of nail polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and ate through the plate. After seeing the hole in the plate, she tested the other kid polishes on the foam, which they all began to bubble and eventually left holes in the plate. And that's when Piggy Paint was born.

Piggy Paint is not flammable, it's a water based polish that is specially formulated of natural ingredients, it's "Natural as Mud." There are no toxic chemicals, it's free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate, and acetone.

I tried the "Tea Party for Two" on my daughter's nails, and I have to say that I absolutely loved it! It is odorless, regular nail polish smell gives me a headache. My daughter like any other 5 yr. old, loves to have her nails painted, I honestly wouldn't let her because of the smell, the mess, and once I would take it off it wouldn't come all off, her nails would be stained from the color she had. I also tried Piggy Paints nail polish remover and loved it! it's odorless, no acetone and hypoallergenic. And there were no nail polish stains on my daughter's nails. I really love this nail polish and polish remover and I would highly recommend it.
They also have cute gift packages available.
