If you’ve ever painted your little’s nails, you have probably seen them try to pick it off with their teeth, if not eat it! Well, Kid Licks has come up with a line of nail polishes that are made entirely of food, and are organic, vegan, non-GMO and cruelty free. It dries in five minutes, comes off with water, and is completely safe to eat! I think that’s genius.
Audrey and Josh are the couple behind Kid Licks, and with three kids of their own, and no food-based polish they could find on their own, they knew they had to create one. Audrey said, “I wanted a way for our children to paint their nails by themselves without having to worry about something toxic getting in their mouths, since regular nail polish, and even other nail polish for kids, is made with chemicals and plastics that we would not want them ingesting.”
Of course, making things with their hands, as well as the freedom to be their own bosses, were a driving force behind starting Kid Licks: “Handmade goods to me are some of the highest quality products out there. I would rather have one quality item made by hand than multiple items that were mass produced using low quality materials. …I love that I can get creative and try new ways of marketing, packaging, and creating new recipes without needing permission from anyone to use this kind of imaginativeness.”
I personally think it’s a great idea, and wish them so much success! Here are a few of their products:
