Hopscotch Kids Nail Polish Review in Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater

Hopscotch Kids Water Based Nail Polish in Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater (Orange)

Hopscotch Kids Water Based Nail Polish in Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater (Orange)

For this Hopscotch Kids nail polish review I tried Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, a shiny orange color. Hopscotch Kids is a water based nail polish for kids. It is from the same company as Scotch Naturals, which is a water based nail polish line for grown ups.

My four-year-old niece tried Hopscotch Kids nail polish in Ice Cream, Soda Pop (sparkling pink) and it made her feel like a princess!

Packaging

Hopscotch kids comes in a cute little bottle, which contains 14 ml of polish. The bottle is wide at the bottom, to minimize spills.

Application

The instructions say to buff dry nails with jojoba oil before painting, which I did. However, the jojoba oil seemed to dissolve away the top layer of the smooth side of my nail buffer.

Smell

There was a slight sour smell while I was painting my nails.

Brush

The brush is narrow and good for kids.

Consistency

The polish went on streaky on my thumbnails and big toenails. Perhaps I had too much polish on the brush, since I was trying to cover the whole nail. It is better to paint half of the nail, re-dip the brush, and then paint the other half of the nail.

Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater is a a shimmery orange. With just one coat it is more of a golden yellow orange. With two coats it becomes a darker orange. It is the perfect color for Halloween or going to see The Lorax!

Wear

I applied two coats of nail polish before bed on Sunday evening. There is also a top coat available in either clear or clear with sparkles, which might help the polish last longer.

The Hopscotch Kids nail polish started chipping already on the first day. It was severely chipped by the fifth day. Even the polish on my toenails had chipped pretty badly after five days, which did not happen with the water based nail polishes for grown ups that I have tried.

Due to its lack of lasting power, Hopscotch Kids is best used just by kids, as intended.

Removal

To remove the polish I used Scotch Naturals Soy Polish Remover, which has the same ingredients list as Hopscotch Kids Soy Polish Remover. It was easy to remove the polish and only took about 15 minutes. I soaked my nails in warm water for five minutes. Then I swabbed remover across all nails before scrubbing the polish off.

Overall

Hopscotch Kids is a great non-toxic water based nail polish for kids. If you are looking for a polish with more staying power, try a brand intended for grown ups.

    I got say say oh playmate, a shimmering purple colour. In pictures it looks like a blue based purple, but in real life it is a raspberry colour in the bottle. On the nail it looks like grape soda.
