I have been on the hunt for natural fingernail polish FOREVER!! My son is highly highly sensitive to smells. Both my nine year old daughter and I are nail biters:( I could NOT bring myself to put the toxic chemicals of fingernail polish on my daughter. Whenever we'd go to a health food store or drug store she would ask if they'd have nail polish that we could use. Nope. Searched and searched. One health food store asked me that if I did ever find natural fingernail polish, what was I going to remove it with?
Piggy Paints are:
Water based (not flammable)
and FREE of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone...
and made in the USA!
Melanie Hurley is the founder of Piggy paints and the mother of two little girls.
Melanie explains the necessity and inspiration of Piggy Paints:
"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."
I contacted Piggy Paints and they sent me a bottle of polish AND natural remover to review. YEP. That is how I will remove the natural fingernail polish, thank you very much:)
WE LOVED IT!!! The color we received was great! My daughter was so amazed that there was no smell. It went on well and stayed on. I was excited that it was natural and safe but so so impressed that it is high quality, comes in great colors and stays on!! I am so excited and now want these for stocking stuffers or maybe Holiday festivities:

I was given a sample of Piggy Paint polish and remover to review. I was not compensated in anyway for my opinion of them.
