You guys are highlighting your lettering, I'm wanting to hide the billboard... It's a little too much for me! Good read, I'll prob do mine black pretty soon!

After asking my wife for some black nail polish and told her why she swears it won't work lol. Do I let the nail polish dry before wiping it or just dab it and wipe right away? I want to do the letters on my slide black. Good idea?
