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.
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.
First we washed our hands.
The finished product. She has her Daddy’s hands…
Think she’s glad I did it?
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!
