Giveaway: Piggy Paint nail polish for your “Green Girl” April 24, 2009

This giveaway is now over – Congratulations Jennifer!

Recently, I wrote about my search for safer nail polish. Traditional nail polish contains formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate. These are chemicals I wouldn’t want a young child or myself to breath in. One of the safer options I found was Piggy Paint, which doesn’t contain these harmful chemicals. In addition, all Piggy Paints do not contain:

  • phthalates
  • biphenyl A
  • ethyl acetate
  • acetone

Piggy Paint’s water-based formula comes in 13 colors that any girl (big or small!) would love to try. They’re odorless, hypoallergenic, and dry to a hard, durable finish. They also offer a nail polish remover that is:

  • non-toxic
  • odorless
  • made from natural ingredients
  • contains no acetone
  • hypoallergenic
  • biodegradable

  28. This is an awesome giveaway, thank you for sharing! Now my question: If there is a safer alternative out there that WORKS, why wouldn’t it be more available in stores? It’s so frustrating that the safer stuff is so hard to find. Ugh! I try to use my nail polish outside when I do paint my nails. Still.

    I would love to try Dragon Tears and Tea Party for Two! I’m wishing they had a nice earth (brown) color…

    Thanks again!

  29. I tweeted and added your twitter ID to the tweet – @kindred_spirit. Thank you!

  30. bdaiss Says:

    Dragon Tears, no doubt. My family has a tradition of green piggy toes dating back to way before my time! (I’m honored to carry on that tradition though – it’s fun. But green can be hard to find outside of halloween.)

    I subscribe as well – through google reader!

    Thanks for a great giveaway!
