The Importance of Base Coat & Topcoat When Applying Nail Polish

Posted by on Nov 3, 2016 in News | 1 comment

Your nail has natural oils that prevent nail polish from adhering well. The best way to make sure your manicure will last longer is by applying basecoat before nail color and topcoat over it.

In her article “Do You Really Need to Use Base Coat?”  Kara K. Murphy compares the base coat with the foundation of a house “Just like when you build a house, you need to start with a good foundation — and a base coat is the basis for a long-lasting manicure.” using the  basecoat properly will help provide a professional looking manicure.

Dr. Heidi Waldorf, director of laser and cosmetic dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City says that basecoats:

-“stick to the nail below and the polish above to prolong the manicure, and allow for enough flexibility to move with the nail as it bends so it won’t chip off easily.”

-“provides a clear protective layer between the nail and the pigment of the polish above.”Basecoat

When using Piggy Paint or SOPHi nail polish, we recommend using the Basecoat + Sealer (Piggy Paint) or PRIME + SHINE + SEAL System (SOPHi). This revolutionary formula provides best wear for our water-based polish giving it the durability of traditional nail polish.

A topcoat acts like a barrier to protect from peeling and chipping, giving you a long lasting manicure. Piggy Paint Shine Topcoat also adds scratch resistance and shine.

With Piggy Paint, for maximum durability you can also use Basecoat + Sealer over the top of Topcoat to lock in the color.

 

Resist the urge to use your topcoat as a base coat and vice versa. “Generally, a base coat doesn’t have the shine of a topcoat, and a topcoat doesn’t have the ‘sticky’ surface that’s important in a base coat,” says Dr. Waldorf. So switching between the two isn’t a good idea.

Since Piggy Paint/SOPHi is water-based and does not contain harsh chemicals, it takes longer for its ultimate hardness to be reached. That’s why we highly recommend blow drying your nails, the blow dryer also speeds up the application process.

6 Ideas for a Girls’ Spa Day

Posted by on Aug 31, 2016 in News | 0 comments

Whether you’re celebrating a holiday, a special event, or your daughter’s birthday, a spa is a luxurious treat anyone would enjoy. But taking a troop of girls to an actual spa can be expensive. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out! Here are some ways you can make a girls’ spa day in your very own home!

1. Have a foot soak

Pamper those toes with a relaxing soak in some fizzy water. Mix together one cup of baking soda, one cup citrus acid, one cup cornstarch, and 20 drops of your favorite smelling essential oil. Store the mixture in a plastic bag until you’re ready to use (do not seal; mixture produces a gas). Pour a scoop in a tub of water for the foot soak.

2. Manicures and pedicures!

Ideas for a Girls’ Spa Day

No spa day would be complete without manicures and pedicures! Display a bunch of colors of kids’ non-toxic nail polish and let the girls pick their favorites. Encourage them to mix and match. If anyone knows how to paint clever designs, enlist their help!

Pro tip: play “musical manicures” by passing colored polish bottles around the room while music plays. When the music stops, paint one nail the color that’s in your hand. Keep going until everyone has all ten fingers painted.

3. Set the mood

Every spa creates a soothing, relaxing mood for its guests. You can simulate the experience by using lamps instead of overhead lights. Throw some colored paper (usually pink) over the lamp shades to give the room a relaxing vibe. Set up a couple incense diffusers or scented candles to introduce some aromatherapy.

4. Dress for the occasion

At the spa, comfort is a priority! Instruct each girl to arrive in a bathrobe with comfortable clothing underneath. Stop by the dollar store and pick up a few stretchy headbands to give out so no one’s hair gets caught in nail polish or face masks.

5. Hair station

Put together a table filled with different hair accessories. Find anything you can, but go with lots of color. Stock it with hair ties, barrettes, brushes, mirrors, paper flowers, and anything else you think would be fun.

6. Prepare face masks

Face masks exfoliate and cleanse the skin. Afterwards, your face feels soothed and clean.  They’re also super hydrating for dry skin. Make facemasks for everyone to wear while you go through your other spa activities or just hang out. Here’s a great recipe.

Have you ever created a spa at home? How did you make it fun?

non toxic nail polish for kidsWritten by Melanie Hurley, Founder of Piggy Paint

Melanie is a mom with two fancy little girls who love to have their fingernails painted. One day while painting their nails, she noticed that traditional solvent-based nail polish could eat through a foam plate. She didn’t like the idea of putting that on her girls’ nails, which inevitably end up in their mouths. She decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for her children’s fingernails. Piggy Paint was born, a non-flammable non-toxic nail polish for kids.

10 Fun Nail Styles for Inspiration

Posted by on Aug 30, 2016 in News | 0 comments

If your girls like to have their nails done often, you’ve probably run through all of their favorite colors… and all of their less-than-favorite colors. It’s not you or your kids have been through professional nail styling school, so how do you keep things interesting without getting too complicated?

Here are 10 and simple nail styles to give you and your kids some inspiration.

1. Animal + matching pattern

The giraffe print pattern is pretty cool on its own, but the little giraffe avatar gives the set a nice touch.

2. Olaf is easier than you think

The Frozen lovers in your family (that is, all the kids) will love this one. It’s a perfect depiction of Olaf’s goofy face.

3. An eclectic mix!

Why stick to one pattern or style when you can have several?

4. Kitties and ice cream

This one takes a bit of precision so you may have to help your daughter a bit. Surely it’s a great way to improve their hand eye coordination.

5. A color spectrum

This is a subtler style than the previous ones, but it’s very classy and elegant. Plus, it’s super easy. We have all the colors you could need to make any color spectrum you’d like.

6. Polka dots

Simple and classy, this style would look great with a darker dress. It adds to a look without becoming the central focus.

7. School day doodles

This is cool because it gives the simple doodles some depth and meaning, like your child was casually doodling during class. Love this!

8. Strawberries

Talk about a pop of color!

9. Rainbows and clouds

This one is really simple, but what’s awesome about is that if you use a few extra coats on the clouds, you can give it some depth, as if the rainbow is behind it. 3D nails!

10. Emojis!

Kids basically speak in emojis these days, so let them use their nails to express themselves. There are hundreds of emojis to choose from, or go with the basics.
