Non Toxic Nail Polish
If you’ve been around my site, you know that I am all about natural. I am striving to eliminate toxic ingredients from my home, and one of the most toxic rooms in the house is the bathroom!
There are so many toxic and unhealthy ingredients in beauty products these days. I combat this by making a lot of my own homemade beauty products, and only buying products from companies that are conscientious of the ingredients they use.
Nail polish is one of those beauty products that I always need, but can be highly toxic. I recently found a company called Piggy Paint, who makes safe nail polish! Their nail polish is:
- Low Odor
- Made from a water-based formula
- Dries to a hard, durable finish
- Comes in a variety of fun, vibrant colors
- Safe for pregnancy
- Free from formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, BPA, ethyl acetate and acetone
- “As safe as mud!”
As I happen to be 5 months pregnant, I love seeing products that are safe! Additionally, I am always careful about the products I use on or around my 4-year-old daughter, and I love that this is a safer alternative to traditional nail polishes.
We went with the following colors:
Elle couldn’t wait to get home and get her toes and fingernails painted! She opted to go with a pink and green polish on her toes, to have a bright spin on Christmas colors. And let me tell you… it is not an easy feat to get her little piggies to stay still while the paint dries!
I found some awesome tips on Piggy Paint to make the process more fun for Elle, which in turn, made her more cooperative (and still!). The nail polish only takes 60 seconds to dry, which is the same as two rounds of “ABC’s”. Their website also recommends speeding up the process of hardening by using a blow dryer.
And if you’re feeling really brave, lay down some newspapers and let your child develop some fine motor skills! Hand over the polish, if you have an age-appropriate child, and let them paint their own nails. It may be messy, but it’ll be a fun experience for them!
I opted for a purple paint with a silver tip finish. I was hoping the tips kind of looked like frost… since it’s winter time. Not really sure if that’s how it turned out, but I thought they looked cute! And I felt comfortable painting my toes with Piggy Paint, knowing I wasn’t breathing in any toxic fumes that aren’t good for my growing baby.
Well… I almost felt comfortable. There is still the matter of my growing belly that makes bending over a little bit more challenging. I think next time, I’ll see if Elle can work on her painting skills, and help mommy paint her nails 🙂
