Twinkle Toes

Has anyone used the Twinkle Toes hoof polish?

I just got it in gold sparkles and haven't used it yet. Just thought it would be fun. Any problems? Any tips?

I heard that it dries their hooves out.

It just locks out moisture. It's like fingernail polish, so if you are showing anytime soon, I wouldn't put it on because you have to file it off. I usually put it on before the farrier comes

I don't do any showing, so no problem there. I figured I'd put some hoof protector/moisturizer stuff on her hooves a few days before using the Twinkle Toes.

I'd hate to have to file it off, would nail polish remover take it off? I guess I could just try a little on my nail and see if it removes it.

I've always heard that you can put it on right on top of a layer of moisturizer to keep it from drying them out..just a thought =)

^good idea. And filing it off isn't that bad, you just put some hoof oil on right after. It's basically like putting polish on a show horse's hooves. I'd be scared that my horse would have a reaction to the acid

I used to put it on my pony, I never had any problems with his feet from it. I just left it on & let is wear off, farrier probably got a good bit off too

You can put a moisturizer on a few hours before applying if you are concerned about drying out the hoof. Then apply the twinkle toes. I let it wear off on it's own, as polish remover is much more drying. You can use alcohol (rubbing) to remove that kind of stuff too, but it's really drying too, so you want to make sure you apply some kind of moisturizer after removing the sparklies

*sighs* yes I have used it.

Took forever for that stuff to actually wear off my horses hooves, and I mean weeks. I don't really like it, its a pain in the butt to work with and it smells *yucky*

I used it once. I made Blue a "my little pony". I used the glittery polish on his feet and then I had the gel in his man and I painted a heart on his butt. I didn't have any issues with it. It wore off pretty quick too...
