My almost five year old daughter repeatably asks to have her nails painted. As a mom I am concern about using cosmetics meant for adults on my daughter. That is when I started to do some research of my own. I must say I am shocked with my findings. “According to David Suzuki Foundation 2010 report What’s Inside? That Counts, 80 per cent of cosmetics contain at least one ingredient linked with health and environmental concerns, including cancer, reproductive disorders, asthma and severe allergies. Did you know that some nail polish brands have nearly 30 chemicals combined? As a mom, founder Melanie Hurley was horrified when she saw what the nail polish she was putting on her children’s nails did to a Styrofoam plate. From that day on, she decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for her children’s fingernails, which would inevitably end up in their mouths. From there Piggy Paint nail polish for kids was born.
Piggy Paint is a water-based, non-flammable, non-toxic, natural and eco-friendly nail polish made specially for little girls. It is free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone.
Piggy Paint comes in a variety of fun colors that will appeal to kids. For the holiday season I will be painting my daughter’s nail with a combination of silver, red and green.
Performance-wise, I have to say Piggy Paint does well and exceeds my expectations. Unlike other nail polishes made for little girls, this one doesn’t peel, but instead chips like adult polish. My daughter went two days before the one nail started to chip. If the nail polish starts to get gooey during application, you need only add a few drops of water to it, and your Piggy Paint is back to new!
Piggy Paint can be removed from nails with “Piggy Paint Healthy Nail Polish Remover”, rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover.
