If I were to ask preschool girl if she wants to use nail polish, she’d reply “what’s ‘nail polish?’”
If I were to ask her if she wanted to use Piggy Paint, she’d squeal and say, “Oh, can we paint my nails right now, pleeeeeeease!”
Until she was four years old and I found out about Piggy Paint, I did not let my daughter paint her nails. Like the founders of Piggy Paint, I was worried about the chemicals in most commercial nail polishes and removers. Unlike most other brands, “Piggy Paint is a natural, eco-friendly nail polish designed for fancy girls. Its non-toxic, hypoallergenic formula makes it safe to use on all piggies.”
New Nail Polish Pens
To add to their product line of water-based nail polishes, Piggy Paint has just introduced nail pens. Available in almost the entire rainbow, Piggy Paint Nail Polish Pens come in seven different colors and there is even a nail polish remover pen.
We received our paint pen samples in the mail and preschool girl, who is yet to read, recognized the logo right away. She nearly swooned when she saw that we had received “Tea Party for Two” (blue) and “Forever Fancy” (hot pink). She’s been wanting blue nail polish since our first visit to the Piggy Paint website. Alas, we did not get to paint her nails with the new pens for three nights because it was always contingent upon her behavior at dinner. On the fourth night, when all went well with dinner and bath time, she nearly floated up the stairs to receive her reward… a manicure.
She’s very focused on getting the blue out of the package!
Paint pens are great for little ones because much of the worry about spilling and mess-making is removed from the process. Preschool girl loved that she was able to paint her own nails.
The finished product. She adores it, and four days later (four days of preschool, playing in the dirt, washing hands and baths), the paint is still on. That’s more than I can say for many of my nail finishes.
To Buy or Not to Buy
To Buy… Piggy Paint Nail Pens are a fantastic way for little ones to safely paint their own finger and toe nails. The “natural as mud” formula won’t harm them and the large barrel pens are easy for smaller hands to grasp. The variety of colors is sure to please even the fanciest of the preschool set and, at only $8.99 per pen, these would make great stocking stuffers for the holiday season.
Not to Buy… I have to say, we are big fans of Piggy Paint in this house and, if you’re going to buy nail polish for a youngster, I can’t think of a reason not to make it safe Piggy Paint.
