How Safe are Your Little One's Piggies?

This contest has ended. Thanks to all that entered!
So I decided to put my nail polish to the test. I won't name brands, but I was really shocked that ALL ate through a Styrofoam plate! Well, except for Piggy Paint! You can see the nice big blue spot in the middle, which is "Tea Party for Two" from Piggy Paint. I can't believe some of the kid brands I have bought for my daughter were that acidic. Or even my $10 bottles of a big name brand. I decided to do a science experiment and see what else would eat through the Styrofoam... I tried coffee, soda, lemon juice, stain remover, lotion, hand soap, dish soap and some other cleaners. Nothing ate through or bubbled.

So my conclusion of the experiment is that no other finger nail polish will go on my daughter's nails, which will eventually go into her mouth, other than Piggy Paint! Even companies that swear they do not put Formaldehyde, Dibutyl phthalates, or toluene in their polishes, still bubbled and ate through. I wonder what they are hiding?

Piggy Paint has fabulous color choices that every Princess will adore! Ella gets the colors purple and blue mixed up. But ever since she's been wearing blue nail polish, she's learned the difference. The polishes are a fun- SAFE way of teaching colors, plus what little girl doesn't like getting her nails done?

  8. I learned that you do not have to use a blow dryer on the nails, but it is recommended for maximum chip resistance. Since Piggy Paint is water-based and does not contain harsh chemicals, it takes longer for its ultimate hardness to be reached. The blow dryer just speeds up this process. amsbolda@hotmail.com

  62. I would let my three year old look at the site and choose the color she wanted (most likely blue as she keeps looking at the blue polish at the stores.) Then I'd also get some remover because I painted her nails for the first time two weeks ago and am currently waiting for it to wear off on its own since afterwards it occured to me that there was no way I wanted to put nail polish remover on her hands!
