Piggy Paint Review and Giveaway {CLOSED}

6:46 AM


***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

With summer right around the corner (soon, I hope!) that means one thing...sandal and flip flop weather! Ohhh, how I love wearing my open-toed shoes! I don't like flip flops because of the little thingy that goes in between my toes...can't stand that! But, I LOVE my sandals! One thing I usually do in the summer is paint my toenails. I do not like to wear colors like purple, blue or green as those are not really "natural" colors to me. My colors are mauve, pinks and neutral. Sometimes painting my toes can really make me feel pampered and well groomed...a feeling that I need once in a while!

I have a company that I have been trying to get a review with for a long time and I am finally able to share it with you all today! It is a special nail polish company that I have fallen in love with and know that it is a perfect fit for you all as my readers!
Piggy Paint is non-toxic, odorless and kid-friendly nail polish. Yes, you heard right. ODORLESS. While I love to paint my toes, I hate the smell of traditional nail polish. My hubby cringes every time he walks into the bedroom after I have finished my toes. It's downright nasty.
This awesome company was founded by Melanie Hurley, a stay at home mom of two little girls. Here is her story...

I am a stay-at-home mom with two very fancy little girls, ages 4 and 6, 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 (Click to see 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 Paint takes the worry out of painting your nails and puts the fun back into this enjoyable activity you can share with your daughter and other precious girls in your life.

I am totally with her when she says that she was worried about her children putting their hands in their mouths with that awful polish on them! WHO KNOWS what chemicals they are ingesting! Ouch!
So, for this review I was sent two nail polishes from Piggy Paint and they are the PERFECT colors for me! They are actually from the adult line that is totally new at Piggy Paint...the Piggy Paint Refined line! I was sent the "How Merlot Can You Go?" and the "In The Flesh" nail polishes. These two colors are pretty similar to ones I would choose if I was shopping for polish.
When my husband saw I received nail polish that was odor free, he said "Yeah, right. We'll see." So, I opened the bottle and took a big whiff. Sure enough...it didn't smell AT ALL. I was sure excited as I painted my piggies! It was very nice to not have to breathe in fumes and chemicals. My toes turned out great! I am not the neatest toe painter, but hey...I try. :)
Piggy Paint is hypo-allergenic and is gentle enough for sensitive noses and hands. I love the fact that I can use it when I am pregnant! (I am NOT pregnant now, but it is really nice to have this for when I am!) It also dries really quickly and doesn't chip easily. I did notice that I only needed one coat for my toes to look nice...usually I have to apply 2 coats in order for the polish to look even.

The price of Piggy Paint is rather steep for my budget...but for what you are getting, I can see why it costs what it does. So, if you love to indulge in your beauty products for you and your children, you can be sure that you are getting what you pay for from Piggy Paint! :)

So, in my opinion...Piggy Paint really does provide a truly odorless and "clean" nail polish! I was very impressed with the polish I was sent and loved the colors too. It's nice to know that Piggy Paint is out there for me and other moms who are concerned with the products that they use. Go green...go pink...go whatever color you want! Just GO get some Piggy Paint!
