Anyone tried this nail polish? Might be best chrome

Recommended Posts

There are some real pretty colors in that line-up.  But I have a drawer full now, waiting for me to use before they dry up.

My wife is a cosmetologist. So, I can get a bottle on the cheap to try out. It looks a lot like another product that people use on full scale stuff.

Looking at the way it blushes and then glosses and needs a special base coat I'm thinking it's a lot like Alclad.

Please let us know how it turns out... I'd think if it could survive a couple of weeks on a woman's nails it would be able to survive forever on a model car and not be as fragile as the Molotow or Alclad.

A couple weeks? Has any woman ever left the same color on her nails for a couple WEEKS? :blink:

That was my first thought : It's got to be durable for that application . Not fragile , like a Fabergé  egg or a newborn bird . 

( I've never embraced the whole Alclad thing , as it seems do freakin' delicate . I've used Krylon / Duplicolor aerosol chrome for big parts for over 10 years . At least one can handle the parts with no problems after the finish has cured completely ! )

What do you guys use to thin nail polish for air brushing????....

It is a lacquer, so lacquer thinner.

Seems like it's not exactly as good as it looks ....

Those kind of product reviews are a good indicator that the stuff is too good to be true. Too bad.

My 23 year old daughter just told me today about a brush on chrome nail polish that looks really good. She told me it has to be cured quickly after brushing with a UV light to produce a good clear chrome look. She wants to get some to touch up the faded vacu-chrome on the dash of her 69 Mustang. I can't wait to see how it looks.

Doesn't seem like it. Spend the extra mazuma and get Alsa Corp's Easy Chrome.
