Frequently Asked
Questions

WHAT MAKES IT DIFFERENT?

Ordinary nail polish is full of chemicals you wouldn’t want your kids to ingest, like toluene, formaldehyde and DBP, the “toxic trio.” Even so called “kids’ polishes” are made mostly from petroleum resins like polyurethane and acrylic co-polymers.

Kid Licks is food based, made of 100% edible ingredients, and removes with alcohol, soap and water so there is no chemical nail polish remover to use. 

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS?

All of our polishes are made entirely of edible ingredients, and are non-GMO and cruelty free.  Kid Licks contains: alcohol and  confectioner's glaze, and may contain titanium dioxide, blue 1 lake, blue 2 lake, red 3, red 40 lake, yellow 5 lake and yellow 6 lake.  The alcohol evaporates as it dries, but children should be supervised in using it.

IS KID LICKS GLUTEN-FREE, NUT-FREE, or DAIRY-FREE?

Kid Licks does not contain any gluten, dairy or nuts (either peanuts or tree nuts). For the time being, it is made in a facility that processes items containing gluten, dairy and nuts, but we’re working on changing that too.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DRY?

Kid Licks dries to the touch in 30 to 60 seconds, depending on the thickness of the coat. Once dry, it is strong and durable.  Add Kid Licks clear coat for an even more durable finish.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST ONCE ITS ON?

Once it is fully cured, Kid Licks should last several days, more if paired with Kid Licks clear coat.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE IT?

With alcohol, soap and water. Just soak a paper towel or cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and scrub off.  Finish with a soap and water rinse.

HOW LONG DOES A BOTTLE LAST AFTER OPENING IT?

Kid Licks should last about a year after it's open.

HOW OLD DOES MY KID HAVE TO BE TO USE IT?

The polish itself can be used on nails of any age, even on babies’ fingers and toes. Kid Licks does contain alcohol when wet, which evaporates as it dries, and the bottle is glass and contains small parts, so children should be supervised when using Kid Licks.

WILL IT STAIN?

Kid Licks colors come from a variety of edible sources, some of which stain more easily than others. In general, we recommend keeping Kid Licks away from carpets and nice clothes. Of course, accidents happen, and a quick soak with alcohol, followed by a rinse with soap and water will often keep a stain from becoming permanent.
