Guest Post: Pawlish by OPI Doghouse Blues

Happy Saturday! Today I have pretty much the most awesome guest post ever....I've been wanting to do this for a while and finally got around to it!

I bought this a few years back, then lost it for a long time and re-found it last time I was going through my polish. OPI put out Pawlish "color for nails for those with tails" a while back, not exactly sure when! Cute right? I picked up Doghouse Blues since Degen is a manly dog, he can't walk around with girlie pink toes lol. These are meant to be 1 coaters but Degen has black toenails so the color payoff with 1 coat isn't too great. I don't think Degen minds though ;). I did some googling and apparently dog nail polish is actually still made (though I don't think these OPI ones are) and comes in quite a few colors, I had no idea there was actually a market for this kinda thing!

Before anyone says it, I know someone will come along and get their panties twisted about painting a dogs nails...and well you can't please everyone. I would never paint his nails with "regular" polish and he really didn't mind it. Any hateful comments will not be deleted.

That said, here is Degen modeling his pretty toes. All the neighborhood dogs are jealous of him now!

  2. AW! That is so freakin cute! I actually have a dog very similar to yours, his name is Pepsi. I think I need to go searching for these polishes, Pepsi has such a feminine side! Lol.

  4. that is so cool that he let you do that! mine wouldn't sit still, but I would totally rock a hot pink on her!

  5. This is almost as cute as your pup. I wonder how durable these are...might work well for someone who's rough on their nails?

  6. Most awesome guest post in the history of guest posts. Degen is such an adorable dog. <3 I think the colour looks really good on him ;)

  7. Awww... Nice to meet you, Degan. Loooove the blue nails. They work fabulously with your gorgeous brown coat.

  8. That is adorable! I am really impressed Degen let you put it on. He must be a very laid back kind of doggie. All the dogs I know dislike having their nails clipped so I can't see them staying still for nail painting.

  9. This is so cute! Degen looks so proud of his manly mani :)

  10. Hee! I'd not heard of OPI doing dog polish. Is it the same pro wide brush as the human polish?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Awww too cute! That's a great color for him :)

  12. i love the idea, but how do you take it off?

    If i even look at patsy's nails she runs away lol i am not allowed to clip them so instead i sneak in with a file every now.

    big kiss for Degen

  13. His claws look like steel and he'll go all Wolverine if someone makes of his style. Booyeah!

    I know my cats would give me side-eye and hide under the couch if I tried painting their claws!

  14. whew, I am so relieved that no one has freaked out. I was fully expecting some hate lol!

    lol I have no idea, I would think they aren't any more durable than rgular polish! I guess we'll see how long it lasts on Degen!

    oh he haaaaaates having his nails clipped, I take him to the vet to get it done so he doesn't try and murder me for doing it. But he doesn't mind when I touch his feet otherwise. He just sat there all calm while I was painting his toes! lol

    It sure is the same pro-side brush...isn't that funny?!?

    ReplyDelete
  18. LMAO this is so cute. Sascha always wants hers done because she puts her paw up but I dont wanna use regular stuff on her.

    while I was googling about dog polish last night I discovered they actually make dog nail polish remover! I'll probably just let it wear off though!

    You are a brave girl to file Patsy's nails! I have to take Degen to the vet to get his nails trimmed because he hates it so much!

  20. @Hermione

    LOL I just laughed so hard at the Wolverine reference! I considered trying to paint the cat's claws but I know he would rip my face off for trying haha

  26. Too cute! I love it :) As long as the dog doesn't mind and it isn't harmful to him, I think it would be cute. :P I don't think my dog would like it though.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It looks cute!
    Does the bottle list the ingredients? It would be interesting to know if they're the same as regular polish.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Omg. This is ultra cute! If puppies can wear coats and boots in the winter... Why bit a little colour on their nails ;) lol Ps. That colour looks great with his complexion;)

  29. @Viktorija

    I *think* they might be listed but I can't get the little tag thing off the bottom where they would be

    ReplyDelete

  36. I had no idea OPI made polish for dogs. How cute this is! I see nothing wrong with painting dogs nails. They can look purty too!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Omg! That's so cute! I never even knew they made nail polish for dogs.

    ReplyDelete
  38. @Anna

    It wasn't super stinky but it did smell like nail polish, usually Degen doesn't care for the smell but it didn't seem to bother him when I was painting his nails!

    ReplyDelete
  39. @Lilybeans

    I did it while Degen was sleeping! He woke up sniffed his foot and went back to sleep LOL

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love him! I want to paint my Dachshund Ghia's nails one day, if only I could get her to sit still! <3

    ReplyDelete
  41. So freakin' cute! I had no idea they made polish for dogs! Wow!

    Degen certainly seems happy enough with his manly nails! (I wonder if I could get away with doing this on the boyfriend?) *chuckles* xx

  42. @loveloatheandme
