Piggy Paint Review & Giveaway...

Now that I am mom to a  girl my radar is now not completely focused on all things construction and trains.  Now, I can turn at least some of my attention to some girly things.  Tutus and dresses and baby dolls and little painted toe nails.  Ahh....frilly time!  In preparation for the time when Baby R is ready for some Mommy & Me mani pedi's I was happy to test out Piggy Paint!

Piggy Paint is a natural, non-toxic nail polish that is just perfect for little fingers and toes.  Piggy Paint was created by a mom, Melanie Hurley, who was tired of painting the fingers and toes of her daughter's with traditional, chemical filled, polishes.  One day she watched in dismay as some spilled polish ate through a Styrofoam plate and, as a result, Piggy Paint was born.  Hooray for Mom!  I really got thinking about this and how often children put their fingers in their mouths and I was cringing thinking of all the nasty chemicals that they could be ingesting from traditional polishes...blech!  Here is a shot depicting the scary things polish can do to Styrofoam plates (never mind our children!!)...

On top of being safe for kiddos, Piggy Paint is also a whole bunch of fun!  There are loads of kid-friendly colors to choose from like an orange named "Mac-n-Cheese Please" and a clear sparkly polish called "Glass Slipper".   There is special line for tweens called Project Earth in spunky colors like a bright yellow called "Solar Power" and even a glow in the dark polish called "Radioactive".    You can buy the polishes separately or in cute little gift sets like these...

The Pink Pail is in support of breast cancer and a portion of the proceeds will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for Research.

I was sent a bottle of Piggy Paint to try out in the "Girls Rule" shade as well as Piggy Paint's non-toxic polish remover.  Right away I noticed that the polish did not have that overwhelming odor you typically have with polish.   I loved the bright pink color (so fun!) and it went on easily.  The remover worked quickly and it too had way less of an odor than what I normally use.  When Baby R's nails get bigger than the little tips they are and she is not such a wiggle worm, I will surely be using Piggy Paint on her!  For now it I get it all to myself!

You can visit Piggy Paint's website to buy some of this fabulous polish for the little girly girl in your life.
