Why Are Your Nails Funny Colors? – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What are you doing to yourself, Lady Human?

Me:  Painting my nails.

Stella:  Are those like my toenails?

Me:  Yeah, but human nails are flat compared to dog nails.

Stella:  That is so weird. And it smells funny.

Me:  That’s the nail color.

Stella:  Why are you doing it?

Me:  I don’t do it often, but every once in a while, I like to try something new. A new color. Or a new nail treatment. Today was that once in a while.

Stella:  May I lick them?

Me:  No. At least not until the polish dries fully. You don’t want this stuff in your mouth.

Stella:  Will you do that to my nails?

Me:  With the way you lick on them and chew on them? No way.

Stella:  Don’t you chew and lick on your nails?

Me:  Not anymore. I did sometimes when I was a kid.

Stella:  Well, all I can say is that you are missing out on a special treat.
