    Hey gang! So silly question, but has anyone thought about using nail polish for painting? I mean, thinned, it can go through an airbrush. I just was wondering because I found a very nice pearl blue color while my GF was dragging me through her beauty shop (yay...), andI was wondering of anyone else has used them or thought of using them. Thanks :) .

    I wouldn't recommend it. I used clear nail polish to tigthen joints before I found out about Future. The polish would sometimes erode the plastic a little bit. And it could get awfully hard if I didn't work the joint. Almost like superglue...
