Why is Piggy Paint Nail Polish the safe nail polish choice for children?
- Water-based formula
- Fun, vibrant colours
- Dries to a hard, durable finish
- Made in USA
Ingredients: Water, water-miscible acrylic resins and thickeners (well below 100 parts per million), glycol ethers. May contain mica, D&C red lake, ultramarine blue, iron and titanium oxide pigments.
Applying Piggy Paint:
- Wash hands with soap and water
- Apply 2 -3 thin coats of Piggy Paint
- Air dry 60 seconds
- Blow dry polished nails for 1 minute with hair dryer set on warm heat/low blower setting. For safety purposes, please follow manufacturer’s instructions on blow dryer and always monitor your child.
- Since most young children are squirmy during the drying process of any polish, we suggest singing songs to pass the time. Two rounds of the “ABC’s” should make 60 seconds pass by very quickly. Make “Piggy Painting” a bonding experience for you and your child.
Use our Topcoat (revolutionary water-based formula) for added scratch resistance. It also adds shine and works perfect to seal our nail art designs!
Do I have to use a blow dryer to dry the nails? No, but it is recommended for maximum chip resistance. Since Piggy Paint is water-based and does not contain harsh chemicals, it takes longer for its ultimate hardness to be reached. The blow dryer just speeds up this process.
Use Piggy Paint As a Learning Tool: Tune those 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 their fine-motor skills and gives them a chance to exert their independence.
Are you trying to teach your child color names? Paint their 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 their nails, and encourage them to do the same. Wear red clothes, add red foods to mealtime and use a bath color tablet to make their bath water red. Once they've mastered that color, paint their piggies a new colour.
Recognizing different types of patterns is a hard concept learn for children to learn, so why not put Happy Feet are Piggy Paint Feet patterns right at their fingertips? For example, if you’re working on simple patterns, alternate blue and yellow “Piggy Paint” on their fingers. As you go through the day, help them to make patterns with their toys, M&M‘s, crayons, beads…use your creativity. Have them refer to their 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.
Does your child play any sports? Perhaps they have a favourite high school, collegiate, or professional team they cheer for. If so, paint their nails with their team’s colours to show her support.
