Piggy Paint is safe for all ages. It is even safe to paint your baby or toddler’s piggies. Also, safe to use during pregnancy.
Piggy Paint Nail Polish is the size of a “normal” bottle of polish (0.5 fl. oz./15 ml), yet has a skinny brush that works well on small nails. Our remover is 4 fl. oz./120 ml.
Piggy Paint typically wears a couple days shy of solvent-based polishes when applied as directed. Wear depends of on the type of nails, the activities the nails are involved in (polish obviously doesn’t wear as well on children because they are so hard on their nails), and how the polish is applied. For maximum chip resistance, we recommend blow drying polished nails for 1 minute with hair dryer set on warm heat/low blower setting.
Use Piggy Paint Basecoat for added scratch resistance and Piggy Paint Topcoat for added chip resistance. A little more effort is required to apply all three products, though the result is well worth the extra time. Since our polish does not contain the harsh chemicals found in solvent-based polishes, do not expect it to wear exactly the same (but pretty close). Our customers tell us it is well worth the trade-off for a non-toxic, eco-friendly, odourless alternative!
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.
Another alternative is to wait and polish your child’s nails after bath time, before they go to bed. This will allow the polish to cure overnight.
Piggy Paint dries to a tack-free state nearly as fast as regular polish, though it takes longer to reach its ultimate hardness. We recommend using multiple thin coats since they will dry faster than one thick coat. If your hands are cold, the temperature is cool, or there is high humidity in the area, it may take longer for the coats to dry.
Piggy Paint is as Natural as Mud in the sense that every ingredient in the polish is biodegradable with no traces or residues left behind, thus it would make an excellent addition to your mulch pile. Our nail polish is water-based instead of solvent- based, with about 75% water!
Although separation is very minor, occasionally a light ring of color will appear at the top of the bottle. Simply shake the bottle to mix the polish.
Piggy Paint has a shelf life of several years, though there may be a slight tendency for the polish to thicken as the months go by. To correct this, add a drop or two of water to the bottle and give it a good shake!
If thinning is needed, add 1 or 2 drops of water, and shake well. For best results, gently remove any nail polish clumps present on the brush with a paper towel.
Simply, clean nails with Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover or soap and water. Healthy nails naturally produce a mixture of oils and proteins, which serve to protect, beautify and enhance their appearance. Normal nail polishes remove these substances from the nails, requiring the user to prepare their nails with other products. However, since Piggy Paint Nail Polish is a water-based polish, it does not remove the oils so your nails remain strong and healthy.
Piggy Paint can be removed within 1-3 days with rubbing alcohol. Afterwards, the polish becomes increasingly more difficult to remove, particularly for dry, porous nails or toenail, and a nail polish remover is necessary. Our Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover is specially formulated for our polish, though it will remove solvent-based polishes as well. Soak nails for 30 seconds with a cotton ball saturated with Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover.
On the carpets we tested, Piggy Paint Nail Polish was easily removed, as long as the stain was taken care of quickly (before it dries). We have had several customers praise Piggy Paint for not ruining their hardwood floors, as well as their carpets. This is not a guarantee; but you have a much better chance of saving your floors with Piggy Paint Nail Polish, since solvent-based polish stains set in immediately.

Piggy Paint is a non-toxic, eco-friendly nail polish that can be removed with our acetone free, low odor remover. Our mission is to reuse as much packaging material as we can. The flats and boxes used to hold our polish travel from the factory to our warehouse and are used in the warehouse to pack materials to send to retailers and distributors, reducing the amount of waste generated. Packing materials that cannot be reused are recycled.
Piggy Paint is intended only for use on fingernails and toenails.
