Hi all
I have seen nail polish for dogs on the market and I was wondering is this any different from human nail polish? what makes it suitable for dogs - is it because it is not harmful if they eat it?
Also do dogs try to lick/chew it off or are they ok with it?
thanks

Ya, I asked kenyas groomer about this. its used because if ingested, it won't cause any problems. also, there is no chemical smell

If it's less smelly and chemicall-y why aren't we using it on people? :)
its not as good. it doesn't give as pretty a sheen/color and doesn't last as long lol while i was doing kenyas nails i got curious and did my pinkie

when i play with rubies nails i use people nailpolish becuase the doggy stuff literally made her sneeze alot and gave me a headache...
the only difference i saw was that the doggy one dried faster, but i wasnt impressed with coverage and needed a couple of coats still...

ive found using the "quick set" spray (whcih is just clipper cool in a different bottle lol) on human nail polish works best...BUT probbaly not a good choice for a grooming place or somwhere that they might have to put them into a crate for drying time...i keep ruby on the counter after i do heres and wait for all paws to completly dry before setting her down.

Davis makes a nail polish that only needs 1 coat even on black nails. it drys in about 30 seconds too.
but it smells super strong.

I've used both dog and human polish on Ginger's nails. The dog polish does dry fast, but it sometimes needs more than one coat.
