Revell's 37 Ford street rod kit. Painted with a flip flop nail polish, flips from green to purple. Custom mixed engine and interior colors.

Your paint is exquisite! I use a lot of nail polish, but have never tried "flip flop". Is there anything special or different from spraying normal polish? I would sure appreciate a short tutorial on how you use this polish. Once again, your paint on this model is beyond excellent.

Thanks guys. It takes multiple coats of polish to build up the color. Most nail colors are fairly translucent. Once the color is achieved, a couple of coats of clear, Polish, wala, great paint job.

Interesting paint.  I think I saw it used a couple yrs ago on You Tube.  Am sad about fit of the top when it's on.  Why the company can charge so much with such poor "quality control" is a mystery. 
  On the plus side, the nice look to front and rear suspensions and undercarriage make it worthy of your nice painting techniques.

I'm not keen on the colour but it sure is shiney. Nice one.

Excellent detailling, a very striking colour and a brilliant gloss. Very impressive! I like it a lot.

Hi MP,

Very, very nice Sir, do you if you could brush this nail polish on, as in would it self level or would it leave brush marks behind...
