Piggy Paint Part 2

Hey Lacquerholics!  A while back I reviewed a non-toxic nail polish called Piggy Paint.  It’s usually marketed to children but  the colors are funky enough that I think adults could love them too!  Now the product has very specific directions on how to apply, most notably that you do not use a base or a top coat.  I decided I wanted to see what would happen if I applied the piggy paint using a traditional base and top coat.

Last review I applied a shimmer color called “girls rule”. this time I picked up a bright red creme called “sometimes sweet”.  Let’s just say there’s a reason why the directions are specific with regards to applying base and top coat.

I applied the polish the night before using Sally Hansen Hard As Nails as a base coat and Poshe fast drying top coat.  The creme dried to a satin-like finish before I applied the glossy top coat.  The following morning, I did my usual morning routine and my nails looked pretty good… that is until I got off the bus on my way to the subway and noticed my thumb.

Granted, the photo is very blurry as it was hastily taken with my camera phone on my blackberry but I think you get the picture.  Now if you remember from my last review I did notice chipping when I applied the polish as directed.  However it took several days for that to occur.  This chip on my thumb happened during the first day.  The moral of this story is, if you’re going to use Piggy Paint, follow the instructions and do not use a base and a top coat!

Piggy Paint can be found in New York City at Ricky’s and I recently noticed them at Duane Reade.  Don’t forget There’s a coupon code just for my Lacquerholics out there by going to http://www.piggypaint.com and using the code LACQUER10L and you’ll get 10% off.  Happy Shopping!
