Can I paint my beardies nails with non toxic nail polish?

Postby Tamlyn94 » Thu Oct 24, 2019 11:42 am

I was just wondering because I've been seeing some pictures on Facebook of people who have been painting their beardies nails. Would a polish like piggy paint be ok to use on her?

I doubt it would be harmful but she may not like it.

That will definitely kill her street cred :lol:

But it would be totally unharmful. It might be a long shot, just make sure she doesn't mistake her toes for food if they are brightly colored.

Ugh, why must you tempt me so? My beardie would probably sit still and let me paint her nails too, lol. Also, I didn't know that Piggy Paint brand existed. That's actually pretty good to know for myself. Always hated that regular nail polish smell.

I know I'm new to ownership here, but I would advise against it. Reptiles are so sensitive that I would be scared to affect them with any chemicals. Just remember that because it says it's non toxic, that refers to people, not beardies :)
