using nail polish as touch up paint.

would it be ok to use black nail polish as touch up paint on the bumper, i get these little marks resulted from parking in the streets. people really NEED to know how to park and when a space is NOT long enough..

get the touch up paint marker you can find it on ebay the touch paint bottle is pretty tough to use the marker is alot easier to use. I know how you feel when parking on the streets when other people park to close try parking in front of a house where there is a driveway so no one can park in front or behnd you.

^ That sucks...

I feel so nervous going into the school parking lot... People are always ****ing running into eachother... I stay a while after school to let the loons get out... when I don't have to stay for sports...

my neighborhood doesnt even have driveways, all street parking, sometimes when i come home late, i cant even find parking within a 7 block radius, i'll have to drive a few blocks down where people have garages.

btw kismylx, which paint should i look for on ebay, i searched but hundreds came up and i dont know which one to go with. i think the fastest way is to go to pepboys this weekend or something.

what part of NY are you from?

i'm also from queens ny south richmond hill area. Yeah try getting the paint market touch up i used it for rock chips and had a small scratch but it works well for me. if your bumper is really bad then i guess your right you probably have to repaint it once a year

for real, its only 5 from the dealer, i looked on ebay and its 15 for the acura/honda one with the paint on one side and the clear coat on the other. i guess i'll get it at the dealer. Is nighthawk black the only black color honda uses?

btw, its mostly the other guys paint on my bumper, i can rub/scratch it off most of it with my hands.
