Piggy Paint nail polish is a natural alternative for girls who love painting their nails. Labeled "Natural as Mud", Piggy Paint offers a wide range of colors made from Eco-friendly ingredients and a hypoallergenic formula that's safe to use on all piggies. It's also made in the USA!
Piggy Paint is simple to paint on, dries quickly for squirmy little girls, and is easy to remove. The clear base coat also helps the colored paint stay on longer. Piggy Paint comes in more than 30 colors and an array of gift sets. The line also includes Fancy Nancy polish with added shimmer and glitter and Spirit Paint featuring college colors.
Piggy Paint goes on smoothly with just a few brush strokes and dries quickly, especially when using a blow dryer to speed the drying process along. The heat from the dryer also helps harden it and lengthen the wear. Piggy Paint doesn't have the typical nail polish smell since it's made from chemical-free ingredients; Aqua (water), Acrylates Copolymers, and Melia Azedarach (neem oil). It actually smells a lot like finger paint or poster paint.
Since the primarily ingredient is water, Piggy Paint can be thinned by adding a few drops of water. Acrylates Copolymers serve as the adhesive, binder, and film forming properties of Piggy Paint. The Melia Azedarach (neem oil) has anti-fungal properties and is derived from the fruits and seeds of an evergreen tree which is found in the Indian subcontinent.
In contrast, other brands of nail polish have been known to contain chemicals such as Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate, and Toluene. Formaldehyde, which has been connected to lung and nasal cancer, is often added to nail hardeners. Dibutyl Phthalate is used to ward off cracks & chips, and has been linked to reproductive issues, and Toluene has been known to affect the nervous system. Source: College Fashion
Although these particular ingredients are becoming less used by mainstream nail polish companies because of the concerns they create, it's awesome knowing Piggy Paint is committed to being an all-natural, even Eco-friendly alternative for little girls (and moms too!) with their water-based nail polishes.
My two-year-old is already interested in painting her nails. I'm happy I can accommodate her interest in being girly with a product that's also safe for her to use. Piggy Paint is a creative opportunity to teach my daughter even at a young age about the importance and value of using natural products. But she mostly loves the bright colors, so it's a great thing that Piggy Paint has lots of them!
Piggy Paint dries to a hard, durable finish that can easily be removed with an Eco-friendly, low odor Piggy Paint nail polish remover. Both are made in the USA. Piggy Paint is available in an assortment of gift sets perfect for Holidays and other special occasions. Say good-bye to harsh, smelly chemicals and hello to Piggy Paint... it's as Natural as Mud!
