My oldest daughter is a girly girl. She loves dresses and cute shoes and painting her nails. I have no idea where she gets it.
OK. Maybe I do. She likes getting dressed up about as much as I do, and we have so much fun when we get to do it together. The challenge is that I just can’t, in good conscience, let her use traditional nail polish knowing that it probably contains a cocktail of toxic chemicals. So what’s a mama to do? I want to give her a little creative freedom (on the weekends, at least), but I want her to use a product that’s safe.
This is why I absolutely love Piggy Paint, nontoxic nail polish for kids — though I guess it’s really for anyone. Or at least that’s what I told myself this weekend. My girls and I had a little pedicure party on my birthday using Piggy Paint’s cute colors, and some of their other great products. And yes. The baby got her nails done too. Which is the beauty of using a product like this. I know it’s safe for her, too.
Plus, I mean, it just doesn’t get cuter than this. Right? Right.
We started with a little lotion to soften and moisturize our skin — because all of us are prone to dryness during the winter. Then we slathered on a little flavored chapstick. But the best part, by far, was painting our nails.
Thankfully, baby Juliza was so intrigued by the process that she actually sat still for most of it, and I carried her on my hip until her toes were dry. With Piggy Paint, that doesn’t take very long.
I’m thinking this is going to become a regular date for my girls and I. Because as cool as it would be to have mommy-daughter mani-pedis at a nail salon, I’m in no hurry to expose them to the fumes that run rampant there. Piggy Paint has given us the gift of quality time spent on a shared interest.
Piggy Paint is available in a ton of colors, as evidenced by the fact that we all managed to choose different ones, and you can find it with the other kid-friendly beauty products at your local Walmart.
