This past Sunday was Easter and instead of spending it doing an egg hunt with my kids, I spent the morning at the doctor’s office with a sick girl child. Half way through church, she laid her head on my shoulder and a quick kiss to the forehead told me that she was coming down with something. Word from the doctor was that she just had a nasty virus….nothing to do but go home and hunker down for a few days. You know when your kid is sick enough to not be in school but well enough to still feel like doing something? Well, I was seriously happy to have been sent a whole selection of Piggy Paint natural nail polish to play with because she is home sick today and chomping at the bit for something fun to do. Piggy Paint to the rescue! Who can feel sick when they have pretty fingernails, right?
Piggy Paint Natural Nail Polish
My daughter and I have used Piggy Paint natural nail polishes in the past and I love that they are as natural as mud! Piggy Paint contains no toxic chemicals; it’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, Bisphenol A, ethyl acetate and acetone. It is a water based formula that is hypoallergenic and cruelty free. They have an amazing variety of vibrant colors that are given really cute names to appeal to little girls like “Sea-quin” (shiny turquoise), “Glass Slippers” (clear sparkle), “PINKie Promise” (glam pink), and “Girls Rule” (bright, shimmery lilac). Piggy Paint products are made in the U.S.A. and can be bought at select Wal-Mart stores, www.walmart.com and specialty children’s boutiques nationwide. They also offer a chemical free nail polish remover, cute accessories and really nice gift sets.
I honestly loved the selection of colors that we were sent from Piggy Paint to try out. My daughter loves bright colors and her very favorite thing to do with her nails is to do every one a different color. Seems crazy to me but what do I know, right? I am apparently OLD! The colors are vibrant and bold, some of them shimmery and some more of a solid, matte style. We used only one coat on her nails and I think they came out great. I love that these natural nail polishes are odor free. I can’t stand the smell of traditional nail polishes and I always worry when she is using those. It can’t be good for a kid to be inhaling fumes like that! These nail polishes are water based so it does take a tad bit longer for them to harden than traditional nail polishes. One way to speed them along is to use a hair dryer on low setting to ‘blowdry’ them. You can sing a few songs to keep little ones entertained while you wait. Thankfully, mine is old enough to be a little bit more patient…but just a LITTLE bit!

My daughter and I loved spending some time together on her sick day doing her nails. It made the time pass by a little faster and hopefully just looking at her pretty little Piggy Paint nails will make her feel a tad bit better today. I think she is crossing those prettily painted fingers that she is better tomorrow and go back to school. Staying home with mom is fun, but still not as much fun as hanging out with her friends!
