Eat Your Peace Piggy Paint Sponsor Spotlight Review


 
This is Eat Your Peace Piggy Paint and it is actually in two of the holiday sets, Mistle Toes and Jingle Nail Rock so you have probably seen it before if you bought either one of those Christmas sets. The color is like a green shimmer.  I got a chuckle over the name because it sorta goes with our theme in Honor the Earth. Think about it: Eat Your Peace. It's green and it has to do with Peace which is what we all want on our planet. Just wish it were that simple!
 
 
 
Piggy Paints has some new products I did not know about like your favorite college team and ours happens to be the Georiga Bulldogs and I think I will have to get one of these for the girls because they are obssessed with that team! This gift set includes one red polish, one black polish, a remover, and a sticker sheet with 10 nail stickers and two face stickers. The nail polish is called Spirit Paint.
 
And they even have the black nail polish!
 
Then here are the stickers: 
 
And lastly their own Nail Polish Remover: 
 
 
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.

 

This is why Piggy Paints are safe for children:

*Non-toxic
*Low Odor
*Water-based formula
*Hypoallergenic
*Fun, vibrant colors
*Dries to a hard, durable finish
*Cruelty-free
*Safe for use during Pregnancy (for mom of course)
 
And the Polish Remover is just as safe because:

*Low Odor
*No Acetone
*Hypoallergenic
*Biodegradable
 
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.

But, here is what really melted my heart, Puppy Paint!

Puppy Paint

Puppy Paint

Puppy Paint is a non-toxic polish made for posh puppies! Puppy Paint even covers dark nails and dries quickly! Isn't that just too cute!  There are 6 colors all together and I can just see Charlie getting his nails done! It would be a hoot! And the picture they used almost looks like my Charlie, that has to be a Yorkie!

 
Here is a little bit about Piggy Paint:
My name is Melanie Hurley, founder of Piggy Paint. I am a mom with two very fancy little girls, ages 6 and 8, who love to have their fingernails painted. I’ve always hated the thought of my kiddos putting their hands in their mouths after I painted their nails with traditional kid polishes.  
Not only did the ingestion of the chemicals worry me, but the smell nearly left me light-headed after painting two sets of fingernails and toenails. One day while we were painting nails over a foam plate, my daughter dropped a glob of her solvent-based polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and “ate” through the plate. I looked in dismay at the hole in the plate and decided to test all of her other “kid” polishes on the foam.  
Within minutes, ALL of the solvent-based polishes began to bubble and eventually left big holes in the plate (Click to see plate). From that day on, I decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for my children’s fingernails, which would inevitably end up in their mouths.

I have been wanting to buy this (tell your sponsors that I haven't seen it in any store). When I was about 12 and my mom finally let me paint my nails I always chewed it all of (always!). Horrible when you think about it. I would like to have this for Alysia who would love to paint her nails.

Another product I have never given much thought to the safety of! I am due with a girl this summer and I know I wouldn't want to paint her nails with anything harmful. Thanks for the review!
