The girls and I have never really done any ‘spa nights’ or things like that, because I don’t see the point in having bonding time where I’m putting a bunch of chemicals on their skin, hair and nails so they can look “pretty”. That being said, it is fun to put on nail polish and I also hate that my girls friends can where nail polish, but I’m always mean and say no. I have recently been able to review a nail polish called Piggy Paint.
Piggy Paint is an all natural nail polish that is targeted for little girls. Piggy Paint is water-based, non toxic, hypoallergenic, and has no formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, Bisphenol A, ethyl acetate or acetone!! Now, that is something I don’t mind my kids using on their nails!
Piggy Paint sent us the Color Me Happy set of nail polish. All the Piggy Paint has super fun names that little girls will get a kick out of and the Color Me Happy set includes Pocketful of Posies, Jazz It Up, Dragon Tears, Girls Rule!, Forever Fancy, Mac-n-Cheese Please, Ice Cream Dream, and Tea Party for Two. How cute are those names!?
I started our nail painting extravaganza with Olivia, my 4 year old (5 in a couple days!). I let her tell me what to do and how to paint her nails. And, oh my goodness, did she have fun telling me exactly how she wanted it done!
On the first hand, she wanted me to do Dragon Tears (green) and Forever Fancy (Pink). I couldn’t just do it normal, though.
Here we go…
She is so excited about her idea to make stripes!
Piggy Paint suggests you run the hair dryer over your nails for about a minute to help it set.
Now, to start on her right hand. She gets really crazy with her requests on this one! :)
She has picked out LOTS of colors and she has me do stripes on each finger. I let her tell me exactly what colors to do together. Some of the fingers look really cute and others, well, look like the colors were put together by a 4 year old! It is all hers, though, and she had a great time doing it!!!!
And, voila… the final product!
So cute, right!!??
Next up was my 11 year old daughter, Samantha.
Samantha’s favorite colors are blue and green, so naturally, she picked those colors for her hands! She chose Ice Cream Dream (turquoise greenish color) and Tea Party for Two (blue).
We decided together we would alternate the base coat on each finger and then put polka dots over that color.
And, since the girls got their nails done, I thought I would do mine too. I decided on the Girls Rule! color. :)
