Piggy Paint Sponsor Spotlight Review

You and your little girl(s) are gonna love these pretty colors and bright sunny smiles that it will bring to your little girl's face when she does her nails and toes with these great colors from Piggy Paints! I was very lucky to get the Little Chick set in honor of Easter. They are three of the cutest pastel colors. Take a look:

Aren't they the cutest colors? Let's see, there is Dragon's Tears (green), Angel Kisses (pink) and Sea quin (turquoise). Those are the perfect colors for Easter, don't you think? Well, they are actually perfect for any day in the Spring or Summer! I am more a pastel kind of girl myself. I will sometimes wear a red or darker pink in the winter but that is about as dark as I go.

I will tell you that I did try the Dragon's Tears on my toes and they positively glowed! They are sorta like a neon colored set but that's okay because it didn't make them as dark when I put them on. I don't know why I did not take a picture, but forgetful me, I did not. I must admit although I have never worn any kind of green, these weren't so bad.

They came all wrapped up in this neat little blueish and white polka dotted bag with the ribbon for an added girly touch. All of the sets have their own special colored bag and all of them will have a certain theme going on. Like for St. Patrick's Day they had a set called Lucky Shamrocks, which actually did have my Dragon's Tears in it along with 2 other shades.

I saw one called Birthday Bash and those colors really rocked! And then there was the Lollipops & Gumdrops and then the last one I saw that I might have liked is the Glitter Girls. Don't they have the neatest names? I don't know who thinks all that up but they are pretty darn accurate.

You can also get polish remover, nail pens (now those I would have loved to try), nail art, pedi set, infant onesie, toddler tee and an adult tee! They are all adorable and as girly as girly can get! You will find all of this except for the polish remover under the Accessories section. They also have a Sale section where some of the single colors and gift sets are marked down. I think these are mostly the colors from like Thanksgiving thru Valentine's so that they can make room for the Spring and Summer items.

This is why Piggy Paints are safe for children:

*Low Odor
*Water-based formula
*Fun, vibrant colors
*Dries to a hard, durable finish
*Safe for use during Pregnancy (for mom of course)

And the Polish Remover is just as safe because:

*Low Odor
*No Acetone
No matter you are after as far as nail products for children and yes, even you, Piggy Paints can certainly help you in that department. Here is what Piggy Paints says about the question of whether their nail polish will hold up as long as regular nail polish:
Piggy Paint typically wears a couple days shy of solvent-based polishes when applied as directed. Wear depends of on the type of nails, the activities the nails are involved in (polish obviously doesn't wear as well on children because they are so hard on their nails), and how the polish is applied.

For maximum chip resistance, we recommend the following application instructions:

Wash hands with soap and water.
Apply 2 -3 thin coats of Piggy Paint, Air dry 60 seconds.
Blow dry polished nails for 1 minute with hair dryer set on warm heat/low blower setting. Since our polish is water-based, it takes longer to cure and the blow dryer speeds up this process. For safety purposes, please follow manufacturer’s instructions on blow dryer and always monitor your child. (Tip: Sing 2 rounds of ABC's while blow drying for added fun!)

Piggy Paints has been gracious enough to offer the winner of my Spring Buzz Giveaway a set of the Little Chick just like the one I reviewed. Spring Buzz Giveaway starts on March 21st and ends on March 27th. Good Luck!

Mary Bearden personally reviewed these products. I did not receive any monetary compensation for my review, just a sample product. All opinions are mine and belong to me solely. My thoughts and opinions may differ from yours. A few of the pictures were taken by me and the cranky camera with most being taken from Piggy Paint's site.

My little girl is always wanting her toenails painted but I worry about the fumes. These sound like a safe way to paint her nails.
