Piggy Paints Polish Review and Offer

popup_top

A couple weeks ago I received and offer and request to review Piggy Paints, a non-toxic, kid-friendly nail polish.  When I saw this request I’ll admit to giving off a little giggle “tee hee”.  Ever since EJ arrived on this planet (I’m still not certain that I actually gave birth to her sometimes)and I got a look at those cute little toes, I’ve been going on and on about how much I wanted to paint them.  But my dear hubby had different ideas and told me he didn’t want me to.  He was worried about the toxins and everything bad that comes in a bottle of pretty paint.  And who can blame him? Regular nail polishes smell like everything from death to formaldehyde, which is close to death.  But when this offer came along to try out Piggy Paints I let him take a look at their website and his steal trap mind was opened… and changed.

Piggy Paints is advertised to be as safe as mud. This put me at ease because even if it went on her feet she would still find a way to shove it in her mouth. It’s non-toxic, odor-less, water-based, and hypo-allergenic.  It’s ingredients are a combination of things you find on this planet and are not made up of chemicals that will eat holes in you.  After reading about how safe Piggy Paints is I knew that if my daughter decided to stick her freshly painted toe in her mouth she would be fine.  And to top off how great the polish is they also have polish remover that is non-toxic too!  I will forever be tossing out my nasty removers and will be keeping Piggy Paints polish remover on my shelves.

Another thing I really liked about the Piggy Paints website is how they give you great ideas as to how to accomplish painting those wee little wiggling toes. And how, when they get older, letting them paint their own toes can help with everything from their fine motor skills to color recognition.  So not only was my daughter going to end up with the even cuter toes she was going to learn something!

A few days after I accepted the offer to review Piggy Paints I received this little package in the mail filled with recycled peanuts and a beautiful bottle of purple sparkly polish. There was also a bottle of their polish-remover.  The first thing I did was take a sniff of course and… nothing.  No nasty sinus burning smell. Really! Nothing! I can’t tell you how reassuring that was.  So after careful planning and some references to their website again for some last minute hints as to how I would accomplish painting my dear daughters toes I set forth.  I put her in her highchair with her favorite snack and proceeded to umm… paint.  Let me elaborate on my “umm”.  I painted the chair, my fingers, the bottoms of her feet, and yes I did manage to paint her toenails too.  I know this sounds messy but something else I found I really liked about this product was how easy it wiped off of the areas that it got smudged on to while trying to paint the toes of my wiggling one year old.  The directions say to apply 2-3 thin coats but 1 was all I could manage before she started behaving like I was trying to chop her toes off with a purple laser beam.  But I did it!  And one coat was plenty to turn my dear darling EJ’s toes pretty sparkling purple.   My first attempt is admittedly a little sloppy but hay…she’s a one year old.  You try to paint a one year olds toes and see what happens.

Over all I’m very happy with this product and VERY excited about the safety of it.  I love knowing that the extra paint that got on her skin isn’t going to leach bad toxins into her body.  I love being able to paint her little toes regardless how messy we got. I love that now we have matching toes because I did mine too.  What? Did you think I wouldn’t?  So this moms opinion of Piggy Paints is a solid 5 stars.

Piggy Paints polish retails for $9.99 and the Piggy Paints polish remover for $10.50.  Not bad when you consider the safety of it all. There are also some great little gift packages you can purchase for various prices. They also offer FREE shipping on all orders over $25 to anywhere in the world.  With my review they have also allowed me to offer my readers a 15% discount on anything on their website including sale items.  Just use the code JOY15L.  But hurry, they are only letting me offer this till September 15th, 2009.

Have fun polishing to little toes!  I did!
