an interesting idea, although i suspect you will end up with a pocketful of tiny nail polish specks as it slowly flakes away. particularly if there is anything else along side in your pocket.
Anyone else try their hand at this? I would love to see more pics! I actually have a few more models that could be modified. Pink pearl farmer anyone?
Just a thought, how about using enamel?

There is way more to those Black Beauties compared with recent 93 mm alox than the black anodizing around the silver-red shield.
