Piggy Paint- Review and GIVEAWAY!


Piggy Paint. I had seen it advertised on blogs, but honestly didn't pay much attention to it, because well, I have boys! I thought it was a cute name...

Then Piggy Paint contacted me about trying their polish. I said 'why not? I have fingernails too...'. So they sent me a sample.

When I got it in the mail, I of course saw the color right away. Blue. My boys said, "what is THAT for?". I told them I was trying out this new product for my blog. And they said, "It's BLUE".

SO, to their amazement, I painted MY nails blue. My baby couldn't keep his eyes off of my shiny BLUE nails... =)

Piggy Paint is made especially for little girls. It is non-toxic (There are no toxic chemicals; it’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone.), and it is odor free. It even dries pretty quickly.

I decided to paint my nails because I thought I would give the polish a good workout. With all that I do during the day, we would see how durable this polish was.

When I painted my nails, I noticed that there was no scent. I sniffed the bottle and smelled a very faint smell. It smelled almost like play dough. Mind you, I don't normally sniff the bottles of fingernail polish. But for the sake of this review, and the company saying "odorless", I thought I would check it out. Plus, I think I have an abnormally good sniffer...

The paint went on very nicely. It dried in a very short time, about a minute or less. I payed attention because one of my boys kept asking if they could touch it...

I added the second coat and it covered very well. And again dried in a short time.

Then I put it to my daily grind. Here are some of the things I made my nails endure on "Piggy Paint Day":
  • dishes
  • gardening: pulling weeds, digging in the dirt, hoeing and raking.
  • laundry: hanging wet clothes on the line.
  • giving baby a bath
  • replanting flowers (chickens dug up) in mulch: digging into mulch and replanting.
  • time in the kitchen ( I am a fanatic about washing my hand while I am in the kitchen).
  • tw0 showers

So, I think I gave then a pretty good workout! And here is how they looked after a full day of wear and tear:


Not bad eh? I don't usually polish my fingernails because they get chipped and look horrible so quickly. But I was pretty impressed. My thumbs didn't have any chips, and my other hand didn't look bad either. I am right handed, so I figured I would show you the hand that is the busiest...

Piggy paint also sent me some fingernail polish remover. I opened it, and also noticed no smell. I again sniffed the bottle (FOR THE REVIEW!) and notice absolutely NO smell at all! I was seriously in shock. And it works like it is supposed to! I am a fan!

I would get one of the pink polishes and a remover that I could share with my toddler. :) I love putting polish on her little piggies, but hate the chemicals involved, so we don't do it often.
