Piggy Paint Review and Giveaway

September 16, 2013

Piggy Paint

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.ย  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.ย  Luckily, I found an alternative to regular nail polishes: Piggy Paint!

Piggy Paint was kind enough to send over the Make it Last set (base and top coats) and the Tickled Pink set (Angel Kisses and Forever Fancy) for me and Mabel to try out.

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!ย  How much more kid friendly can you get?!ย  The polishes are also water-based and used by trendy mommas like Tori Spelling and Jessica Alba. ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

Yes…my skin is blindingly white. Lol!

Next came the more challenging part…getting Mabel to sit still long enough for me to paint her toes.ย  Anyone with a 19 month old will know what I’m talking about.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  I bribed her with a sippy cup and as she was laying down to drink it, I painted her toes quickly!ย  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.ย  I panicked…the last thing I needed was a giant pink stain on my carpet.ย  I frantically grabbed paper towels with water and scrubbed.ย  And to my amazement…it all came up!ย  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.ย  WOW!ย  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.ย  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!).ย  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.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Individual polishes start at $8.99 and Piggy Paint is currently offering a 15% off code (gabby) since this is Childhood Cancer Awareness month.ย  Piggy Paint supports the Get Well Gabby foundation and donates some of the proceeds from orders that use the gabby code!

Piggy Paint has been amazing to me and to you too!ย  They are offering one of my readers the chance of winning a $25 gift certificate to use on their site (I already know what colors I would get!).ย  So do you have a little girl who would love some amazing new polishes?ย  Or would you love to even treat yourself to some new colors?ย  Enter now!
(open to US residents)

Piggy Paint provided me with several nail polishes for a review and my honest opinion.ย  I stand by my reviews and the companies/products I recommend on this blog.

    I like groovy grape, fairy fabulous, or forever fancy! My girls would LOVE this! I just purchased some nail polish at Target for them but anything without so many chemicals would be so much better and I wouldn’t be hesitant to use it all of the time! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can’t believe Mabel won’t sit still to have her toes painted! That was one of my favorite things to do as a little girl…there are nail polish stains on my carpet to prove it ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha. SO amazing to hear that your spill cleaned up nicely. I bet that has a lot to do with the water-based polishes — so smart!

    We love piggy paint have been using it for years! I ordered the Halloween set over the weekend since its only $19.99! Can’t wait for it to come and can use it in October! I have a nail polish for my mother in law to use at her house just wish she would use it more instead of her own adult nail polish on my daughter!

    Wow – I think I would treat *myself* to these polishes! I love doing my nails, but I hate the odor – I have to sit on my outside porch because it gives me a headache otherwise! Piggy Paint sounds like a winner to me! I like “Putting On The Glitz” as far as my favorite color, but they are all lovely! And NO smell, NO chemicals… I *love* that!
