The days of painted nails stopped when I became pregnant with my daughter – I used to be one of those different-color-for-every-day-of-the-week ladies. But when you are expecting, you question everything you put on and into your body. Oh, and this constant worry will just grow and grow as your little baby turns into a young lady. As a mother of three, I try my best to live a chemical free life and find ways to clean and take care of my children and my home with natural products (baking soda and vinegar are my best friends). If that is not enough, having a husband with asthma and super sensitivity to scents always forced us to color toenails with conventional nail polishes outside … and yes, I questioned my judgment about those products that I occasionally put on my daughters toe nails but never really researched safe alternatives.
Well, I am happy to announce that guilt free indoor nail coloring has returned to our family, thanks to Piggy Paint. Having such a girlie girl on hand, I learned that you cannot just walk around in your princess heals without painted toenails – that would be totally unfashionable. And while I am still a bit conservative about putting darker colors on fingernails (something that my mother disapproved especially during the school year and I seem to be carrying on this tradition), I am more than happy to give my girl a little sparkle on her toes.
We received our Piggy Paint sample in the shade of Tea Party for Two. Needless to say, I had to hide it for a few days until we had the ‘right timing’ and we could truly have fun trying it out. We followed the instructions and blow-dried each of the two coats we applied. It went really fast – I mean REALLY fast – and the procedure was very fascinating to my daughter. Usually she needs to sit on our front porch and wait for a long time but with Piggy Paint, she was in and out of our indoor spa in less than 8 minutes with two fully dried coats. My darling is picky – I know better to purchase anything without her consent – but she loved most of the colors Piggy Paint came up with which was rather surprising to me. Request for some of them already made it to ‘wish list’.
