Piggy Paint- Fairy Fabulous


Today I've got a review on the Nail Polish Brand Piggy Paint. This is another brand I was not familiar with until I spotted them at CosmoProf. The Company was created by a mother of two who wanted an alternative non toxic nail polish for her young daughters. So she created this brand which is a water based polish instead of solvent based making it completely kid friendly. I love the idea behind the polish. But for me it's really more of a miss that a hit and I'm fine by that because this polish is meant more for kids than it is for nail polish addicts like myself.

While I completely love this shade of purple, Seriously this my favorite color, I can't overlook the application downfalls of water based polish. I've used other water based polishes before and I always get similar results. For me it's impossible to get an even application and the streaks make for a lumpy end result. Okay lets back up and look at this from a kids perspective....  who cares what the application looks like as long as the paint is on the nails and the kid is digging the color and having fun with it!

While it's not for me If I had a kid this would for sure be on her nails. Kids love to put their hands in their mouth and knowing that there is an option out there that lets your children wear polish and you don't have to worry about your child ingesting any harmful chemicals from it is a major Plus. Here is a link to the company's website Piggy Paint . There you can learn more about the company and see more of the colors that they offer. The polish retails for $8.99. They also have a nifty store locator and I was surprised to see there were stores near me that carry the line. They also have polish for your pups! Puppy Paint! 
*Update* Piggy Paint contacted me to offer my readers a 10% off anything on their website www.piggypaint.com by entering the code manicureaddict10. So take advantage of that if you'd like : ) 


I stole this off their website, but here is another reason i'd want my kid wearing this polish. heh it's a shame I don't care enough about my own nails. I'm so going to be one of those do as I say not as I do preaching parents!

I also got this bottle of remover with the polish, isn't this too cute!! One note about removing this polish.... it was tough!! I tried both this remover and regular Acetone remover and with both had a hard time removing it all so just know that it stays on pretty well.

One last note this polish does not play well with a regular solvent top coat. I put on one coat a few seconds later I got these lines/cracks in the polish. Piggy paint does have their own top coat which I would recommend checking out because perhaps using it would even out some of the roughness of the polish. I have to say that this polish does dry with a high shine without using a top coat so even if you don't use one it's super shiny!

  1. It would be great for kids, I know I would have loved it when I was young. I started liking polish when I was five.

  8. hmm... there was no water shot, i think you're talking about the plate pic i put up, they just put the polish on a styrofoam plate and the solvent based polish eats away at the plate while piggy polish does not. But oh yah major do as i say not as i do ! heh
