Piggy Paint review and coupon code

Piggy Paint nail polish is as "natural as mud". It is kid friendly, mom friendly, and earth friendly. It is the only nail polish I have found that is:
  • non-toxic
  • low odor
  • water based formula
  • hypoallergenic
  • free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, bisphenol A, ethyl acetate and acetone
Piggy Paint sent me a sample of their nail polish and remover to try out. I love all the vibrant colors available and they have some great gift pack combos available too. I have to say that I was very impressed with this nail polish. I was worried that this polish would require more than the typical two coats to get a good color. I was wrong! Only two coats were necessary and I probably could have even gotten away with one! I love that there was very little odor, it went on smooth, and dried very quickly. The directions recommend using a blow dryer to help set the polish for maximum chip resistance. That initially worried me because I thought this polish would take forever to dry. Again, I was mistaken. It didn't take any longer than typical polishes. The shine in the polish was so nice that I didn't feel like I needed to add a top coat. The only change I would make is a bigger bottle. I felt like I needed more room to grasp the top while painting my toes. However, I guess these are a great size for little girls. maybe a mama sized version would be a great addition.

Piggy Paint nail polish remover is a great companion to the piggy paint family. The polish remover is also:
  • Low odor
  • Made from natural ingredients
  • No acetone
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Biodegradable
Piggy Paint sent me a bottle of polish remover to try out also. My first attempt at removing polish didn't go well. However, I was trying to remove my drug store brand, full of chemicals, nail polish. I was impressed that like the polish, there was next to no odor. I even smelled it a couple times thinking I was missing something. When I used the piggy paint polish remover to take off the piggy paint polish is worked without any problems and took the polish off with little effort. So, I would pass on this remover for taking off regular nail polish but it is fabulous for removing piggy paint. Ironically, I spilled some extra strength name brand nail polish remover on my wood coffee table before I began this review and within seconds it had taken the finish off my table even though I cleaned it up immediately. I figured that since the table was already damaged I would try some piggy paint remover on the table. There was absolutely NO damage! All in all, I was very impressed with Piggy Paint products and will definitely be using this healthier and environmentally friendly brand as my regular nail polish and remover from now on. I really love their gift pack combos like: little miss firecracker, lovebug hug, and mistletoe (which is on sale right now). Since I don't wear a ton of polish, and since I have a son, I'll keep my fingers crossed that there will be a little girl in my future so I will have an excuse to stock up on this awesome polish!

A three polish gift pack (each polish is 0.33 fl. oz.) will cost $26.50 and the polish remover is $10.50. The remover is on the expensive side but it really took the piggy paint polish off so easily that I think one bottle should last a long time.
