I can't take credit for this, as I came across it in another post, I can't find it now to credit it...plus it might be from "another" forum. Sinful Colors brand nail polish, color name Happy Ending :) is almost as perfect as it comes in terms of being a color match for the Candy Lime Green and for covering up any nasty rock chips. I tested a spot on a piece of cardboard and it dries to dang near perfection. I'm willing to bet that the blue next to it "Love Nails" will probably be a perfect match as well. The wife found it at Walgreens for $2 and took this pic to share.

You owe my granddaughter for this.

She found it, in Walgreens, and screamed, "LOOK PAPA! NINJA GREEN!"

Its way easier to use than color rites 3 part nonsense, and a more accurate match for the average person. A pro touch up painter might make the three part work better, but Ive never been able to.

I ended up buying a "Factory Pack" of paint for fixing the saddle bags I bought here.

But

That does look rather close. For the average eye, and the 5 ft rule, it'll probably do just fine.

I have the three pack kit, too.

If the paint were 5mm thick, I'd have a chance with it.

There is no way to lay on coat 1, then coat 2, and finish with the third and have it look right. Must be a better way than with the brushes?

^Not without sanding and blending there isn't. At least there's no other technique that I've seen.

I wonder how long the nail polish would last in the sunlight/elements? Is it durable enough for this sort of thing?

Also, the color name, "happy ending". LOL Who chose that one? And love nails? WTF? The names for women's **** is just insane. Suitable I suppose, given the ones' buying it. :D
