I always enjoy painting my nails and now that Mabel is getting a little older I wanted to have a mother and daughter mani/pedi day at home. But I was a little concerned with exposing her to the fumes of typical nail polishes (I even get light headed when I’m at a nail salon) and all those chemicals since she’s still constantly sticking her fingers in her mouth. Luckily, I found an alternative to regular nail polishes: Piggy Paint!
I read up on the polishes and have to tell you how impressed I was that all of their polishes are non-toxic, eco-friendly, hypoallergenic, and virtually odorless! How much more kid friendly can you get?! The polishes are also water-based and used by trendy mommas like Tori Spelling and Jessica Alba. 🙂
So I first tried out the Forever Fancy pink color on myself and this is a completely unedited photo of my nails with the top coat too.
Next came the more challenging part…getting Mabel to sit still long enough for me to paint her toes. Anyone with a 19 month old will know what I’m talking about. 😉 I bribed her with a sippy cup and as she was laying down to drink it, I painted her toes quickly! Well…as soon as I got the last toe done, she bolted, grabbed the bottle of nail polish before I had been able to seal it and dropped it on the carpet. I panicked…the last thing I needed was a giant pink stain on my carpet. I frantically grabbed paper towels with water and scrubbed. And to my amazement…it all came up! I didn’t believe it and after reading over more info from Piggy Paint, they actually mention that their polishes can be cleaned up from carpet if cleaned before the polish sets. WOW! That wasn’t a claim that I had planned on testing…but it happened and I can tell you that it’s true!
Anyway, so my crazy child wouldn’t stand still for me to take a shot of her toes until she was in her little push car so I apologize for the not so great photo. Mabel is sporting the color Angel Kisses, a very light pink.
I’m a true believer in Piggy Paint (especially after being able to clean it up from my carpet!). With a huge variety of vibrant colors, these polishes will be my new go-to gifts for birthday parties of Mabel’s friends and I will be borrowing colors from Mabel’s collection. 😉
