What's the difference between Piggy Paint & other polishes?


When customers ask about the differences in our polish vs. others, we don’t gossip or dismiss others products. Instead we try to focus on all of our amazing attributes.  Piggy Paint is unique because of the water-based formula, which does not contain alcohol or any harsh, smelly chemicals.

Piggy Paint

Since Piggy Paint does not contain harsh chemicals, it does require these few extra steps for durability. When worn according to application instructions, Piggy Paint will wear like traditional nail polish.

Advanced water based polish

Our advanced water-based nail polish only contains 3 simple ingredients: water, acrylates copolymer (our resin) & neem oil, plus colorants (depending on shade).

Piggy Paint offers a Prime + Shine + Seal System to make the polish wear like other polishes.  This is recommended for manicures, but not necessary for pedicures – as toes hold polish better.  For pedicure, simply polish & add Topcoat (for shine).  Follow by blow dryer.  Primer can be used if extra chip resistance is required. 

Piggy Paint’s remover is a softer formula perfect for the kiddos and us too!  One of the characteristics of water-based polish however, is that it tends to be harder to remove the longer it stays on, especially on toenails.  Using the Primer + Sealer and Shine Topcoat make our polish last longer, but also make it more difficult to remove. 

To achieve the fun colours, Piggy Paint uses approved pigments that are safe, non-toxic, and cruelty-free. Every ingredient in Piggy Paint nail polish, including the colorants, has passed Toxicological Risk Assessments by third party laboratories that classify the polishes as non-toxic.

We believe in full disclosure, so you will easily find a full list of the ingredients we use listed in multiple places on the website and also below. None of the ingredients used in Piggy Paint nail Polish or Remover are linked to negative or long-term health effects.
