Girly Girl Babies Gotta Have Piggy Paint

Round about last week, I realized that the New York International Toy Fair was upon me.  And there was one product I had received at Toy Fair last year, that I had yet to review.

PIggy Paint Natural Non-Toxic Nail Polish for Kids

For those of you who are new around here let me fill you in on a little something.  I, Wendy, of Babies Gotta Have It, am a ginormous tomboy. My daughter, Bean, is the girliest girly girl to ever walk the streets of Manhattan. She loves twirly skirts. I love jeans. She loves playing with dolls. I love climbing trees. I hide my heels in the back of my closet.  She pulls them out and tries them on. She loves jewelry and makeup and hair. I am forced to wear jewelry and makeup and do my hair because of my job as an actor. I call myself an actor.  If, heaven forbid, she follows in my footsteps, she will no doubt refer to herself an actress.

Bean has wanted to paint her fingernails ever since she realized her fingernails were attached to her body.  She has colored them with every art supply I have given her: crayons, paint, markers…glitter glue. I was given a sample of Piggy Paint, the natural, non-toxic nail polish for children, a year ago at Toy Fair.  I held out for a year.  Somehow Bean’s first nail polish application kind of felt like her first haircut to me.  She has pleaded for painted fingernails forever.  She has waited patiently. Last week I decided that she had waited long  enough.

Don’t mind me…I’m just hanging up some artwork…with NAIL POLISH!

Piggy Paint is non-toxic, low-odor, hypoallergenic, water-based nail polish and comes in a variety of delightful colors that will make your little one giggle with joy.  It air dries in 60 seconds and is safe for use during pregnancy.  Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover is acetone-free, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, low odor, and effective–we used it to remove Bean’s nail polish a few days later when it started to chip (mind you we only used one coat and no primer or topcoat).

Piggy Paint is available at a variety of online stores including our affiliate Amazon or search on their site for a retailer near you. It’s everywhere. Thanks Piggy Paint, for making a safe, natural nail polish for kids. And for making my daughter’s dreams of glamor come true!

    Thank you so much for sharing this product with your blog and site readers, Wendy. I have been looking forever for something like this, with no real luck. My daughter is 9 and still sticks fingers in the mouth, so have always been hesitant about using grown-up polish on her, and have 2 granddaughters who are almost 3. Let’s just say, they always want their nails painted and as tomboy as I am, I won’t feel guilty indulging them with this cool polish. I will be ordering some! Thank you again!

    So glad Cindy! They really do have adorable colors too! I think it’s a great product…one of those, “why didn’t I think of that?” things!

    She is so flippin’ cute and that smile in the next to last picture says it all. She is so excited about her nails!!

    I wish I knew about this stuff before Hannah discovered nail polish. I have never worn it. The only mani/pedi I’ve ever had was before my wedding. Hannah wears it all the time. I think it stinks. I make her so it outside or on the other end of the house.
