Nail polish mod

I tried the nail polish trick tonight to add some color to my mags. I did one in white and one in red to see which i liked better. I prefer red, but cant decide if i want to add this to my slide. Has any one here done this? What did you think about it once it was finished?

Most of my glocks have the slide engravings colored. I like it.

I think you should do it if it would please you. It probably wouldn't wear very well though. You might have to keep redoing it. Wouldn't do much for concealment if that matters.

White looks good and if you didnt know it was supposed to look that way you wouldint know. Blood red and stuff gets a lil to cheesy. But its whatever you like.

Which part of "Not (repeat NOT) my gun" didn't you understand?

Oh, and don't worry about acetone. Doesn't do a damn thing to the plastic or finish.

Nah. Not "hate." More of a "why bother" thing, to me. Whatever floats your boat.

My gun is pretty much stock, save for a Hogue grip.

There's just something about the words "Glock" and "nail polish" that create cognitive dissonance. They definitely don't go together.

That statement is inherently and undeniably true. Self evident even. To approximately one half of the human race.

Slide no, but I did color my .357 mags with some white so I could more easily tell them apart from my .40 mags. (though I suppose it doesn't matter that much, since they're almost interchangeable)
