    Its kinda hard to go shopping for ladies things for us guys...we get funny looks. lol

    Good job on that chrome! It looks very shiny. Any particular secret method you used to make it look like that or is it just the standard gloss black and alclad ontop with some future to protect it?

    I'd say some of those would work better than others, depending on the shape they come in. I've fooled around with several of these on different other types of "craft" projects. I can see some of them working, but not all of em.

    When I buy clear fingernail polish and other such tools for customs work, I'd get some of those looks. Personally, I think it's pretty funny ("Funny "ha, ha", not funny "queer" . . . umhm").
