Piggy Paint: A Natural Nail Polish (Review and Giveaway)

I'm one of those gals who loves to have her toenails painted. It's something I try to keep up on because I like the way it looks and that makes me feel good. One thing I don't like is the stink of nail polish. That stench always reminds me that I'm putting something completely unnatural on my nails.

Thankfully, I heard of Piggy Paint and was offered a review opportunity to try it out for myself. Of course, when I learned about how natural and safe Piggy Paint was, I decided that the littlest toes in the house could be the best ones to paint. (Her feet are just cuter than mine.)

Yes, Piggy Paint is natural. It doesn't include formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate or acetone. Piggy Paint is water-based rather than solvent. It doesn't even have the nail polish "stink" that I referred to before. And with it being so safe, I get excited to paint Eliana's toenails and never worry about chemicals.

Aren't they just precious? 
Now, there are many different colors available from Piggy Paint and even acetone free nail polish remover. And for tweens and teens, there's a line called "Project Earth" with bright colors and fun names. My personal favorite is a yellow color called "Solar Power". But then, I've always been a fan of bright colors.

Piggy Paint was the brainchild of a concerned mom. Here's a little bit of the company's back-story taken from the website.
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 (Click to see 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.
The color polish we were sent for review is called "Forever Fancy". It's a pretty pink shade and it sparkles too. We were also sent a bottle of nail polish remover that is acetone free. Instead of acetone, Piggy Paint uses things like Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to create their remover. Again, this is something I feel good about using for myself and my daughter. I recommend allowing the nails to soak in the remover a bit before trying to rub off any nail polish. The remover works; it just doesn't work as quickly as an acetone-based nail polish remover.
