How to Apply and Remove Piggy Paint Water Based Nail Polish

Applying Piggy Paint

Either apply Piggy Paint nail polish right before bed, to allow it to fully dry overnight, or use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.

You will need:

  • Piggy Paint basecoat
  • Piggy Paint nail polish in your selected color
  • Piggy Paint topcoat
  • Hair dryer (optional)


  1. Wash hands with warm soap and water.
  2. Apply one thin coat of basecoat.
  3. Allow to air dry 60 seconds.
  4. Apply 2-3 thin coats of Piggy Paint water based nail polish.
  5. Allow to air dry 60 seconds after each coat.
  6. Apply one thin coat of topcoat.
  7. Allow to air dry for 60 seconds.
  8. Optional: Set the nail polish by blow drying polished nails for 1-2 minutes with a hair dryer set on warm heat and low blower setting. Otherwise, allow nails to cure for 4-6 hours without contacting water.

Removing Piggy Paint

It is best to remove Piggy Paint within one week of painting your nails. Otherwise, it may become difficult to remove.

You will need:

  • Cotton rounds
  • Piggy Paint Remover or Piggy Paint California Remover


  1. Either remove nail polish right after a bath or shower or start by soaking your nails in warm water for 5 minutes.
  2. Pre-soak each nail with Piggy Paint Remover for 30 seconds.
  3. Then swipe nails with a cotton round soaked in remover, alternating nails. Swipe each nail for a bit, then the next.
  4. Wash hands with soap and water.
  5. Moisturize nails and cuticles with jojoba oil or other moisturizer.
