Piggy Paint: It’s for Big Girls, Too! (Discount Code and Giveaway)


Even though Piggy Paint nail polish “is designed especially for those precious little girls in your life,” I was anxious to try it. I don’t have any daughters, but I wanted to get Piggy Paint for myself! Why? Piggy Paint is, as they say, “natural as mud.” It’s non-toxic (that means no harsh chemicals), odorless (doesn’t smell bad like regular nail polish), and, yes, kid-friendly (even for us big kids!). This water-based polish has no formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate or acetone -- all those unpronounceable and toxic ingredients that you find in other nail polishes.

But does it work? Yes! I was blessed to receive a bottle of Piggy Paint in Forever Fancy (a pink color I absolutely love), and I put it on right away. It went on just as easily and smoothly as other nail polishes, but it didn’t stink! The company advises you to use 2-3 thin coats and then, for ultimate durability, blow it dry with a hairdryer (set on a low setting, medium heat), which I did. Piggy Paint lasted just as long for me as other nail polishes. When it was time, I removed it with Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover, which also smells good and has no acetone. (You can even use it on other polishes if you want.)

I also love the huge selection of Piggy Paint colors.


You can also purchase Piggy Paint in gift packs. What a great idea for a little girl’s birthday gift! If she lives out of town/state, you can have it delivered right to her door. And if you purchase the Breast Cancer Pail pictured below, they’ll donate a portion of the sale to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for Research.


Piggy Paint can be shipped worldwide, and if you spend $35 or more, shipping is free within the United States.

I’m a huge new fan of Piggy Paint. If your little girl loves nail polish, Piggy Paint is a must-have. And if, like me, you don’t have a little girl but are concerned about the chemicals you use on your body, then Piggy Paint is for you! They also have a new tween line coming very soon.
