    I bought an airbrush a few weeks ago, and have been patient at trying to learn this extremely difficult hobby. I wanted to start painting my own spinner blades, so I wanted to use paint that is durable, and won't chip easily. After experimenting with different kinds, and makers of paint, I picked up a few bottles of nail polish and lacquer thinner. I thin the polish 1:1, which gives an incredible transparent result!;)
