Piggy Paint was founded after Melanie Hurley was painting her two girls nails one day. While painting their nails over a foam paint one of her daughters dropped a glob of polish onto the plate. Shortly after that the polish began bubbling and “eating” through the plate. She decided to test all of her nail polishes that way and found the same result. That is when she made the decision that none of those solvent based polish were going on her daughters nails ever again and she came up with Piggy Paint. Her paint is made from natural ingredients, odorless, hypoallergenic and biodegradable. How cool is that? I love a mompreneur with a fabulous product!
I received a bottle of Piggy Paint in the Candy Coated color and the Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover. I have to admit that I was skeptical if Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover would take off my non-Piggy Paint polish but it truly amazed me. It worked as well, if not better than the harsh chemicals I had always used before. I have to mention that my husband LOVED how it didn’t have any odor to it what so ever.
As soon as I saw the Candy Coated color of the Piggy Paint I knew it was one I would love. It is dark enough to be noticed on the toes and light enough to look nice on the fingers.
It always puzzles me how nail polish never stays on kid’s nails as well as they do adults. I have my theories but I was excited that Piggy Paint included a tip for that in my package. They suggested letting the polish dry on it’s own then going over it with a hair dryer on low for a few moments. I’m excited to see how this works!
