My 4-year-old daughter and I were excited to try the Piggy Paint Natural as Mud nail polish. The name alone and picture of a little pig with painted nails on the bottle had her giggling! I had also heard buzz about the product on social media. The line comes in a variety of bright, vibrant colors that appeal to kids (and adults).
We picked a bright pink called, “Jazz It Up.” Part of Piggy Paint’s claim is that it’s virtually odorless, but I disagree. It has a different smell than traditional nail polish, but you can definitely still smell something when you open the bottle. My daughter said, “Why does it smell like when we paint a room?” Then I realized, yes, that’s the smell. It has a light odor or standard household paint.
I love that the product is non-toxic, eco-friendly, hypoallergenic and made in the USA. I’ve painted my nails forever, and every so often, I’m concerned about the chemicals! I will continue to use this product for my daughter because I feel like it’s safer for her.
The colors are great and the kid-friendly name is so cute for the little ones. The company also has a line of nail polish for adults (SOPHi) and dogs (Puppy Paint) and frequently offers special discounts on their website and Facebook page.
