A few months ago, a babysitter painted my 2yo’s nails. She absolutely loved it, and begged me often to paint her toes. I didn’t want to put the toxic chemicals from nail polish into her system, though, so I never painted her nails.
This week, I discovered Piggy Paint! Piggy Paint is a non-toxic, water-based nail polish that is safe for children. It was developed by a mom who worried about the toxic chemicals in traditional nail polish. Piggy Paint doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals, isn’t flamable and is marketed as “natural as mud!” It is also made in the USA.
It comes in a wide variety of colors, as well as gift packs of multiple colors. Lydia (to the left there) has her toes painted in “Girls Rule” which is a shimmery purple.
The polish goes on just like any other nail polish, and has a vibrant color. The brush in the bottle is small, which made it easier to paint those tiny toes.
The website recommends using a hair dryer to help dry the paint to a hardness, but I didn’t do that with Lydia. I just had her sit still while I braided her hair after painting her nails and they dried just fine. If we were in a hurry to get somewhere, I probably would use the hair dryer.
Piggy Paint also offers a non-toxic polish remover. There is almost no scent, and I wasn’t sure if it would work. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it works great!
I think I’ve found this year’s go-to gift for all the young girls on our gift list! And, while it’s marketed for children, I see no reason why adults couldn’t use it as well.
