THE PIGGY PAINT DIFFERENCE
Piggy Paint, a water-based, non-toxic and eco-friendly line of polishes fit for princesses and the planet. Say goodbye to harsh, smelly chemicals, and hello to natural, colourful fun.
Piggy Paint is the brainchild of Melanie Hurley, a mum of two girls who love having their nails painted. Hurley had always hated the thought of her kids putting fingers adorned with traditional kid polishes in their mouths. Not only did the ingestion of chemicals worry her, but also the smell nearly left her light-headed each time she painted two sets of fingernails and toenails. “One day, my daughter dropped a glob of her solvent based polish onto the foam plate we were working over,” recalls Hurley. “Shortly after, the paint had ‘eaten’ through the plate. From that day on, I decided that any flammable substance that could cause foam to disintegrate was unacceptable for children’s fingernails.”
The quest was on, and Piggy Paint was born. The resulting polishes are made in the U.S.A. with natural ingredients. They are non-flammable and contain no formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, bisphenol A (BPA), ethyl acetate or acetone. And because they are hypoallergenic, everyone can enjoy them.
