Puppy Paws

For the last few years at every Christmas, birthday or other gift giving occasion I've only had one request.... a puppy! This year my brother finally caved in to my begging and got one. She is an adorable black Labrador/Airdale Terrier mix named Ellie. She is still a puppy but even now she is a big dog, I however have chosen to treat her like she is a tiny fashionable dog, pretty pink collars, sweaters and of course sharing my obsession with nail polish. I found some doggy nail polish on amazon and ordered it right away. The brand was Color Paw and the color Hot Pink.

She has 3 black paws and 1 white one, the polish really only showed up on the white. Plus she only held still long enough for me to paint 2 paws anyway :) 

I'll be totally honest the bottle says long lasting, quick drying and covers in one coat and while it did cover in one coat it didn't last long, about 1 day on the doggy nails. It took a few minutes to dry as well and anyone who has ever tried to make a puppy lay still for 10 minute can sympathize with the challenge this was. Anyway after I finished Ellie's nails I decided I liked the color for myself. In a collection of over 200 polishes at least 1/4 of which are pink I did not have a single color that looked like this one. So I painted my own nails with the Color Paw puppy polish.

While the formula was a bit thin but I was actually pretty impressed with the polish. It covered in 2 coats and had a particularly nice finish, glossy and sort of plastic looking when it was dry. Unlike on the dog it had good wear on me with little to no chipping, probably because I don't use my hands to walk like she does.

And just in case you were interested here is what the rest of my adorable puppy looks like.

Thanks for reading... and I promise we'll be back to posting all human nails tomorrow :)
