Piggy Paint!

I'm still a little girl inside! I love having painted toe nails. I don't do my fingernails as much just because my baby chews on my fingers and I don't want him chewing on chemicals on my hands.

I was really excited to learn about Piggy Paint. It was created by a stay at home mom who didn't want her daughters chewing on chemicals either. It is a water-based polish that is specially formulated of natural ingredients and does not contain formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone.

I was sent the color "Forever Fancy" to sample. It went on very easily and dried faster than I realized it would!
It was a brighter pink than I would normally wear on my hands, but I'll use it on my toes for the summer! I did notice that large chip on my middle finger this morning after I'd just painted yesterday, but moments after taking this photo, I went and repaired it and you can't tell the chip was there.

It comes in a really wonderful line of colors:
I will be ordering more from them! It retails for $8.99 a bottle which I think is totally reasonable for a product specially made and formulated to not make you sick when you use it!

I was also sent a bottle of remover to test. It has a low odor (not bad at all), no acetone and is hypoallergenic and biodegradable. Aloe Vera and Vitamin E are added to supplement the natural oils that protect nails and cuticles. It took off my "oops" really easily (you know, when you get paint on your hands when you're painting. Well, that and the cabinet since I dropped the brush...) and I didn't feel like I needed to wash my hands for hours afterward to get the smell off my hands. And I didn't feel like I needed a well ventilated area to use it either. It also retails for $8.99 a bottle and it will last you a while because it's a good sized bottle!
