Ever since I started doing my nails at home with Olive and June, my toddler's also become interested in doing her nails. While I was at Target I noticed a kids' nail polish, Piggy Paint and decided to pick it up.
We've been using Piggy Paint for a few months now and I wanted to share a review!
What is Piggy Paint Nail Polish?
First of all - what exactly is Piggy Paint Nail Polish? Piggy Paint is an all natural nail polish made for kids. Piggy Paint is non-toxic, odorless and free of all harsh chemicals.
The nail polish comes in a variety of colors that are both regular colors and sparkles. Each individual paint is $4.99 but if you get a 4 pack it's only $9.99. I got the 4 pack which had red, sparkly pink, blue and purple in it.
Piggy Paint Nail Polish Review
When I opened the package I was at first skeptical of the nail polish. The package says that the nail polish is water based, so I assumed it would be super watered down and not be very bright.
Little A was so excited when she saw the nail polish! She decided she wanted to do blue first, but then decided to do one hand blue and the other pink. I did one layer on each finger and was impressed with how vibrant the colors actually ended up being. The layer wasn't very thick but was plenty enough!
The box said the nail polish would dry after about 5 minutes but that wasn't the case. I tried to keep Little A still and hands flat while they dried, but 5 minutes it she was ready to show off her manicure to Dad. This ended up with her smudging most of the paint and the manicure ended up lasting about a day. Thankfully it does wash out easy so her clothes weren't ruined by any of the smudges.
The next manicure we decided to do purple, and this time I grabbed my blow dryer to use. I dried her fingers for about 2 minutes with the blow dryer and the nail polish was completely dry! The majority of the manicure ended up lasting about 5 days, and we ended up having to remove the nail polish when A wanted to change colors.
How to Remove Nail Polish
Piggy Paint can be removed with a little rubbing alcohol if it's removed within 1-3 days. After that, it becomes harder to remove. For A's longer manicures, I'll use a little nail brush dipped in a little nail polish remover (I use Olive and June's) and that quickly removes any leftovers.
We've been using Piggy Paint for a few weeks and it's quickly become one of our favorite things to do together. I'm impressed with how long the nail polish lasts and the colors are super vibrant and bright.
