Who are you? Who, who? Who, who?
Piggy Polish is all about color. And being colorful. Each one of our 287 shades is chosen and named carefully and with love. I should have known early on that I would somehow have a career among color, as I have had a passion for color and colorful things as long as I can remember. I grew up on a farm in a small community in Michigan, where I was surrounded by blooming apple and cherry trees. My mother was an artist so I was always around paint. These two worlds collided within me to create a love of color and creativity.
Piggy Polish started on a whim on a June afternoon in the summer of 2003. I was outside painting my toenails and wishing for a professional grade nail lacquer that came in bright, fun colors instead of just pink and red. I wanted a nail polish that came in blue, green, orange, yellow - colors that made me smile and were unusual! If I wanted those colors, perhaps others would as well and with that Piggy Polish began.
The name Piggy Polish was chosen as I typically wore nail polish only on my toes, or my ‘piggys’. Piggy Polish, goes on toes! I had a clear vision of what I wanted Piggy Polish nail lacquer to be. I wanted a strong, long lasting, quick drying formula that came in bright, fun colors. I wanted whimsical, poetic and meaningful names, as if they told their own story and created a sense of fun, names that evoke you to think and try to figure out the meaning, as what is beauty if not imagination? I wanted to create the whimsical side of beauty, the individualistic and creative side. I wanted a product that was as earth friendly and as pure as you can get without sacrificing quality and durability. It is our mission to continuously create new, innovative products that are safe and gentle to our bodies and the environment, while listening to our customers and being relevant to the ever changing landscape of the beauty world, as we will always have promises to keep and miles to go before we sleep, and miles to go before we sleep.
We are located in Grand Haven, Michigan on the shores of Lake Michigan where inspiration for color comes to us naturally, in all seasons.
