Piggy paint review and GIVEAWAY! CLOSED




I didn't think twice about the paint I was putting on Kingsley's toes...until Christian brought it up! Just when you think your DH doesn't pay you any attention, they come up with the darndest things. He said "Is that safe? She is gonna put her toes in her mouth and eat it, ya know?" Well, no I didn't know, it never dawned on me. So, I started looking into products. I found Piggy Paint! And here is their story...similar to ours:

My name is Melanie Hurley, founder of Piggy Paint. I am a stay-at-home mom with two very fancy little girls, ages 2 and 4, who love to have their fingernails painted. I’ve always hated the thought of my kiddos putting their hands in their mouths after I painted their nails with traditional kid polishes. Not only did the ingestion of the chemicals worry me, but the smell nearly left me light-headed after painting two sets of fingernails and toenails.

One day while we were painting nails over a foam plate, my daughter dropped a glob of her solvent-based polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and “ate” through the plate. I looked in dismay at the hole in the plate and decided to test all of her other “kid” polishes on the foam. Within minutes, ALL of the solvent-based polishes began to bubble and eventually left big holes in the plate. From that day on, I decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for my children’s fingernails, which would inevitably end up in their mouths.

My quest was on, and Piggy Paint was born. As you may have guessed, our polish is NOT flammable and sits beautifully on the unaffected foam. We hope you enjoy this water-based polish that is specially formulated of natural ingredients. Finally, a kid-friendly polish without the accompanying drawbacks of traditional polishes. It is free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone... and made in the USA!

From my heart to yours, I hope Piggy Painttakes the worry out of painting your little one’s nails and puts the fun back into this enjoyable activity you can share with your daughter and other precious girls in your life.

Why is Piggy Paint™ Nail Polish the safe nail polish choice for children?
  • Non-toxic
  • Odorless
  • Water-based formula
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Fun, vibrant colors
  • Dries to a hard, durable finish
Piggy Paint™ is specially formulated from God’s natural ingredients and dries to a hard, durable finish. There are no toxic chemicals; it’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone.


I received the product review within days of asking if I could do a review for her! So a definite A+ in quick shipping and customer service!

I quickly put Kingsley in her highchair so I could assess the situation. Last time, did not go well, so I thought she needed to be tied down and a pretzel stick for distraction:) (My girl loves to eat)

Now, the product, DOES smell like finger nail polish to me, so I wouldn't say that it is odorless but the number 1 ingredient is water and the number 2 ingredient water-miscible acrylic resin and thickeners. So, I'm guessing that acrylic is non-toxic and hypoallergenic although I do not recommend drinking it:) The colors sure are fun and I cannot wait to buy the black for my best friend's baby that is coming on Friday!!!

I only used one coat of paint and I barely blew on it and it came out perfect. Absolutely perfect. I have no idea how many ounces you will get when you purchase from them, they sent me a bottle that was 0.33 fl oz and the prices per bottle online are $9.99. I would think that the price was expensive, but if you are only painting baby toes, even the .33 fl oz bottle would last forever! And if you REALLY care about the environment and what products you put on your child then in my opinion is NOT too much to pay.....read below for a coupon code too!!

EDITED TO SAY: bottles sold online are .5 fl oz....so about double what I received!!!






She did awesome, don't you think?

Holly Noelle @ Domestic Dork said...

Before I say my fav color I have to say that I don't think I could get my babe to sit still long enough for a pedicure! At least not at this stage! But I would totally use these for myself b/c I'm concerned about the ingredients in nail polish.

Anyway, fav color{s}? Forever Fancy, Sleepover Polish, Clouds of Candy, and Ice Cream Dream.

Sorry, couldn't pick just one!
