Natural as Mud

picbottlesFor all of the sweet, loves to sneak in Mommy’s make-up bag, dress-up kind of girly girl’s we have discovered a nail polish to match any Princess attire! Piggy Paint. From Mac-n-Cheese Please to Angel Kisses and even as bold as silver Twinkle Toes, Piggy Paint offers 13 unique colors.

With a name as cute as that, who could resist? Piggy Paints are 100%  non-toxic, odorless, and kid-friendly. They proudly boast that their piggy paints are as “natural as mud” and we have to agree.

Piggy Paints are one-of-a-kind and here’s why! They are:

  • Non-toxic
  • Odorless
  • Water-based formula
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Fun, vibrant colors
  • Dries to a hard, durable finish

There is absolutely no smell at all. Trust us–we stuck our noses right up in the polish as well as the Piggy Paint Remover! The remover is amazing in itself. It’s clear, odor-less and is so strong that it even removes regular nail polish without a problem!


Now having a girly make-me-pretty-night can be a breeze! Not only will Piggy Paint be a hit at any sleepover, it can also be used a learning tool. How great is that? (Quoted from the Piggy Paint site);

Fine Motor Skills
Let your child paint your fingernails or toenails. If you’re worried about it looking (well, like a child painted your nails), opt for the toenails…you can always put socks on in public! This helps with her fine-motor skills and gives her a chance to exert her independence.

Color Names
Are you trying to teach your child color names? Paint her nails with the specific color you’re working on (such as red) and declare it a “Red Day”. All day long, point out objects in her environment that match her nails, and encourage her to do the same. Wear red clothes, add red foods to mealtime and use a bath color tablet to make her bath water red. Once she’s mastered that color, paint her piggies a new color.

Recognizing different types of patterns is a hard concept learn for children to learn, so why not put
patterns right at their fingertips? For example, if you’re working on simple patterns, alternate blue and yellow “Piggy Paint” on her fingers. As you go through the day, help her to make patterns with her toys, M&M‘s, crayons, beads…use your creativity. Have her refer to her fingernails for help. Start out with color patterns and then attempt other categories, such as big doll, little doll, big doll, etc. Ready for harder patterns? Move to three different colors or alternate pink, purple, purple, pink, and so on.

School Colors
Does your daughter play any sports? Perhaps she has a favorite high school, collegiate, or professional team she cheers for. If so, paint her nails with her team’s colors to show her support.

She experienced what most of us have gone through with regular nail polish; yucky smells and worry of chemical ingestion. She decided to do something about when she saw that the solvent-based polish actually “ate” through a foam plate! Melanie created a wonderful kid-friendly, non-flammable and chemical-free polish for all little girls to enjoy–putting out Mommy minds at ease. Thanks Melanie! We love Piggy Paints and we hope you will too!

  1. Those are really cool learning ideas! I never thought to use nail polish that way! Have either of you let your kids do your nails yet? Sounds pretty funny!

    Hope the move went well!

  2. What a great post! I can’t wait to try it out since I have a very girly little girl. I have a feeling one day soon this will come in very handy! Nice to Tweet you both 🙂
