Piggy Paint review & discount code


I received a couple of polishes for review from the sweet Laurie of Piggy Paint, from their new project Earth collection.
Piggy Paint nail polishes are directed towards children.As per the information provided by Laurie, they are they are non-toxic.& not just big-3 free, they are water based, eco-friendly polishes. The new Project Earth line is made for tweens, 5 neons(!) and a glow in the dark polish(!!!)
They have received the Excellence Award from Safbaby.com and now proudly have received their seal of approval as an approved Vendor of Mom approved-child tested products.

When I opened the package, the first thing I noticed was that the peanuts were of all different sizes and shades. They use 100% reused peanuts from their local community to ship products, some serious eco-friendliness they got here :)

Onto the polishes. The first polish is 'Solar Power' , the neon yellow from Project Earth. This was the first time I am photographing a neon, so be kind, lol!
I used 3 thin coats in the swatch, & there was still VNL, but I doubt tweens & kiddies would mind that. Application was smooth. Yellows are usually streaky, but not this one.
I had a hard time capturing the color :( It kept photographing as a banana yellow, when in fact it's an ultra-bright highlighter yellow. The third pic, though blurred, shows the neon-ness(?) the best.








This is 'Radioactive' , the glow-in the dark polish. Now, I am a sucker for gimmicky stuff, so I loved this one. No swatch photos, cuz I tried photographing in the dark, & the pix would just appear totally black. The glowing is not ultra-strong, but the effect becomes stronger and stronger with each coat. The polish gives a soft white color to the nails when it's not dark . It looks smooth, but when you touch it it feels slightly grainy, which I assume is due to the glow-in-the-dark particles.
 

Anyways, LOVE this polish, but I am partial to glow-in-the-dark stuff :P
& now for the nice part. A discount code to Piggy Paint especially for my readers! When you use the coupon code CHAIN10L , you will get 10% off on all purchases including items on sale! Spend over $35, & domestic shipping is free! Expiration Date for the code: July 31st, 2010.
