Heres what you need; nonaccetone nail polish remover, rubbing alchool, and desired color nail polish and papper towel.

1. Pour alchool on paper towel and rub down desired area, this is to clean the surface.

2. Paint over the letter or emblem you want changed, put it on nice and thick but not dripping think.

3. put som non accetone polish remover on a paper towel and run over the area you paintef to get the extra off.

4. Use the rubbing alchool to clean agian.

And your product will look like mine. Last night was the first time ive ever done it, thats how easy it is
