Human nail polish on or off??

I had to put on human nail polish on my miniature horse's hooves for a parade in October, and I was told that I can just let it wear off of their hooves. But now I heard that you have to take it off of their hooves. What should I do?? Somebody please give me advice. It is rubbing off but not alot.

I wouldn't worry about it. It'll wear off on its own. Remember, their hooves are made from the same thing as human fingernails, just thicker.

I think that the polish remover would be worse for her then leaving the polish in place to wear off. I hate that stuff!

I'm wondering why there are no pictures of something as cute as this? XD

Whenever I paint my horses feet I always leave it on... It wears off eventually, I don't see a problem with it.

You can use human nail polish on horses? O.o
It'd probably take a couple bottles to paint my horses hooves... lol
But cool to know :~)

I agree with others. I wouldn't worry about it. It will wear off or she'll grow it out eventually.

I am curious how many bottles and how much time it took to do that though. I'm picturing someone painting a horse's feet with those tiny little brushes that come in the bottles LOL.

I was wondering the same thing as smrobs. That must take forever!

Oh haha I have a miniature horse and I did use the little brushes that come with the human nail polish and it didn't take that long. I mean she doesn't like to stand still so of course it took longer than usual, but I was actually surprised when I only used 2 small bottles of silver polish.

There is hoof polish made for horses-regular colors-black, brown, etc, & sparkly ones, too. I've seen silver & gold-there are probably other colors available.If you check it out-see if they have a remover for it.
