    Default Nail polish for marking?

    My daughter did a red,white and blue theme for her nails over the 4th. Got me wondering, anyone tried it for marking? Comes with a brush.

    That stuff runs me out of the room when my wife is using it. I'd look elsewhere for a low fume solution. I use the sharpie oil-based markers. The Posca water-based markers are good too, but don't hold up as well as oil. Mr. Palmer uses testors model paint with good success.

    I've tried it. Most is translucent and hard to see. The fumes are bad, and if you're not careful and if the queen doesn't pass out, you might... get some tester's enamel pens at the hardware store...

    I have pens, I still find them a bit rough if my tremors are bad. Rather poke her with a brush if I can. Some drones may pay the price of my curiosity. Maybe and old nail polish brush and paint.
    Thanks all, feedback is what I was after.

    I mark hundreds of queens a year using the "painters" pens from walmart. They work great, are cheap and last for the life of the queen.
