Happy Friday! Anyone have fun plans for the weekend? I'm going to go see Burlesque after work today but other than that...nada.Today I have for you a new to me brand, Piggy Paint. I've seen it on a few other blogs but never got around to buying any until recently. A little while back I won a CSN Gift Certificate from shortwidenails, CSN sells Piggy Paint so I decided to pick up one of the sets. I chose the Mistle Toes set which comes with 3 polishes, a red, green & milky sheer white with glitter.
The 3rd one I decided to put on is the green, Ice Cream Dream. I tried the other 2 before and it was a disaster. The white was just...no bueno on it's own. Then I tried the red, awful...then I tried the white over the red...even worse. Finally the green...still not happy but not as bad as the others. My main issue with this green is that it's a frosty nightmare, my picture below (in my opinion) actually makes it look better than it is in person. The formula on this one, and the other 2, was surprisingly really good. I wasn't sure what to expect since these are water based polishes and lack all the harsh chemicals most nail polish has. I thought maybe they would be thin and runny, but that wasn't the case. The coverage was really good! My other main issue other than said frostyness is that this polish and Seche Vite did not get along...it was odd. I put on the Seche the same way I do every other time I use it and it was dragging off the polish and leaving bald spots. Thankfully you can't tell in the picture below, but in person I can see and feel where the polish and the Seche Vite had a disagreement All this said, I don't think I would purchase this polish again. The set I bought was $19.99 for 3 polishes, so basically $6 a polish. I've got a lot of much cheaper polish that is much better. I do like that this is non-toxic and kid friendly though so if you're looking for something like that this would be a good purchase for you...just not my kind of thing.
This is 2 coats of Piggy Pain- Ice Cream Dream and 1 coat of Seche Vite
