Springtime comes a little bit later here in Minneapolis, so my girls and I have to find fun things to do to get us in the spring spirit even if the weather outside isn’t quite there yet. With April being Earth Day Month, I am featuring lots of great green or environmentally friendly products. That’s why I was stoked to check out Piggy Paint!
Piggy Paint is a great non-toxic nail polish inspired by a mom that didn’t want her toddler to put toxic nail polish in her mouth. (Yuck!) From this notion came Piggy Paint was born (They are natural as mud!)
My daughters aren’t toddlers, but I am still concerned about all the toxins that they get exposed too. So we set out our piggies and our paints, and made a day of it!
Of course Bayla went for the “girly” colors, she loved the purple and the bright pink. My eldest was more about the bright blue, orange, and yellow. Me, well, I just played along. I let the girls have their way with my piggies, which might have been a mistake in hind sight.
We absolutely LOVED the colors that came in our Piggy Paint pack. They were fresh and vibrant, very spring like! One thing we did want to warn you guys about is that you HAVE to follow the drying instructions EXACTLY in order for the nail polish to stay on pretty much at all. After you are done painting, use a hair dryer and blow it on warm on your nails for about 2 minutes (or two rounds of the ABCs)
Bayla wanted flowers on her fingers, which was a challenge because her fingers were SO small! All you have to do is wipe almost all the paint off (or at least so it’s not super drippy) and dab a color for the petals and a color for the center. She was really proud how they turned out!
All in all the girls must’ve loved our painting day because they were fighting over who was going to get to keep what color when we were done. (Mom vetoed all that and put them in the bathroom)
If you are looking for some great fun with your kids, I highly recommend Piggy Paints! They are a blast!
