You saw Lydia's toes painted for Wordless Wednesday this week, and I wanted to share with you some information about the nail polish I used. We had the opportunity to try out Piggy Paint nail polish and polish remover, and we were both very happy!
A few months ago, a babysitter painted Lydia's nails. She loved it, and asked me many times to paint them again. Between the smell, and all the toxic chemicals, I never wanted to paint her nails. I felt that there are so few things I can truly protect her from, and I didn't want to expose her to yet another potentially dangerous chemical. So, I was excited to try out Piggy Paint!
You wouldn't notice that it wasn't traditional nail polish . . .well, except for the fact that it doesn't have a strong odor! It's thick and colorful and paints on like any other nail polish. Because it is water-based, it can take longer to dry completely, so the website suggests drying it with a hair dryer on cool for a minute or two.
The bottle has a smaller-than-normal brush inside, which made painting tiny nails much easier. They also sell a non-toxic polish remover that works great (but it is flammable, so keep away from flames!)
This is a product I feel comfortable using with my daughter, and would feel comfortable giving as a gift to other little girls. I can see using Piggy Paint nail polish for many years to come!
