Healthy Obsession: Non-toxic, Cruelty-Free Nail Polish That’s Safe for Kids

December 10, 2015

This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home…and gave herself a mani-pedi. And that second little piggy had a lot of fun!

Yep, nail polish never goes out of style, and little ones really enjoy putting it on. But in the past, many parents worried about the chemicals found in nail polish coming so close to their kids’ mouths and noses.

Nowadays, nontoxic polishes—made without the “toxic trio” of formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate found in conventional nail products—make it safe to lacquer up toddlers’ precious fingers and toes. Our pick? Piggy Paint, a line of totally non-toxic and cruelty-free polishes that come in cool, kid-friendly colors.

Pick up a single bottle (you can never go wrong with a classic bubblegum hue) or a festive trio of polishes for your beauty-guru-in-training. We won’t tell if you put on a few coats yourself—even grown-ups sometimes just want to feel pretty in pink.
