My daughter loves to paint her nails. She was happy we were allowed to try a nail polish made specifically for children called Piggy Paint.
Melanie Hurley, founder of Piggy Paint, described the beginning of her quest for a child safe nail polish. "One day while we were painting nails over a foam plate, my daughter dropped a glob of her solvent-based polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and “ate” through the plate. I looked in dismay at the hole in the plate and decided to test all of her other “kid” polishes on the foam. Within minutes, ALL of the solvent-based polishes began to bubble and eventually left big holes in the plate. From that day on, I decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for my children’s fingernails, which would inevitably end up in their mouths."
Piggy Paint is great for kids because it is:
Fun, vibrant colors
Dries to a hard, durable finish
We tried the color Girls Rule which was very pretty. The scent was very mild. It was very easy to apply and went on smoothly. Then it dried quickly and made a nice mini manicure. I think any girl would be happy to receive this.
