One day while Melanie Hurley, founder of Piggy Paint, was painting nails with her daughter over a foam plate, her daughter dropped a glob of solvent-based polish onto the plate. Shortly after, the paint began to bubble and “ate” through the plate. Melanie looked in dismay at the hole in the plate and decided to test all of her daughter's other “kid” polishes on the foam. Within minutes, ALL of the solvent-based polishes began to bubble and eventually left big holes in the plate. From that day on, Melanie decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for her children’s fingernails, which would inevitably end up in their mouths.
Melanie's quest was on, and Piggy Paint was born. As you may have guessed, Melanie's Piggy Paint polish is NOT flammable and sits beautifully on the unaffected foam. Melanie hopes you enjoy this water-based polish that is specially formulated of natural ingredients. Finally, a kid-friendly/pet-friendly polish without the accompanying drawbacks of traditional polishes. Piggy Paint/Puppy Paint is free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone... and made in the USA!
Why is Piggy Paint/Puppy Paint as Natural as Mud?
Piggy Paint/Puppy 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. The acrylic resins are present in the polish in the form of latexes-emulsions in water-very similar in form and function to milk. The term "resin" is quite generic and refers to any polymer which can form a film as it dries. In this sense, proteins, celluloses, sugars, and DNA, to name a few "natural" polymers, are resins and none of these are any less harmful than the resins Piggy Paint uses in their polish.
Is there anything toxic in the nail polish?
No. There are no toxic chemicals. The resins are polyacrylic latexes with residual monomers well below 100 parts per million. The only co-solvent is a diglycol ether. All colorants are FDA-certified for cosmetic use.
Which glycol ethers are used in the polish?
While there are some indications that two glycol ethers, monomethyl and monobutyl ethylene glycol, may have some potential for harm, the diethylene and dipropylene glycol ethers as a class have been proven safe for human contact. Of these two classes, Piggy Paint has chosen to use monobutyl diethylene glycol because of its high boiling point (low flammablility), it's approval for use in California as a non-VOC solvent, its water solubility and its biodegradability.
What should be done to prepare nails before putting on the polish?
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/Puppy Paint Nail Polish is a waterborne polish, it does not remove the oils so your nails and your pets' nails remain strong and healthy.
Will Piggy Paint/Puppy Paint Nail Polish stains come out of carpet?
On the carpets the people at Piggy Paint tested, Piggy Paint/Puppy Paint Nail Polish was easily removed, as long as the stain was taken care of quickly (before it dries). Piggy Paint has had several customers praise Piggy Paint/Puppy 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/Puppy Paint Nail Polish, since solvent-based polish stains set in immediately.
Is Piggy Paint/Puppy Paint polish gluten, soy and nut free?
Yes, their polish is gluten, soy, and nut free. Their nail polish is not a food product, not manufactured in a food processing plate, and is not meant for ingestion, therefore does not contain any food allergens.
Are Piggy Paint/Puppy Paint products cruelty-free?
Yes, their products are cruelty-free and do not contain any animal by-products.
