7620VK nailpolish color?

So, the other day, I unwittingly left my RG 7620VK down on the rack on the floor and my 16 month old son toddles in and promptly knocks the guitar over, face first, onto a crest power amp, leaving 3 nice dings down to the wood, on the top side near the body countour.

I'm for one, completely distraught over the dings as this guitar has been mint since I bought it new until now.

A complete refin over something like this seems a tad extreme as I actually like the color. But, I recall someone saying they found a color of nail polish that matches the VK color exactly, and wanted to see if anyone recalled what shade/ brand etc that was?

Anyone?

Thanx in advance,

(BTW, as pissed as I was, I didn't yell at the boy, he doesn't know about these things yet, I just hugged him and felt sorry for myself)

Bamm, Firstly, Kids do that, but i can't shout or tell em off either ... What i have done is take the guitar into the local store (make-up) and match it as best i can, My local boots are really quite helpfull now ... You WILL get odd looks tho

Another suggestion may be to check your local hobby shop. I'm sure some boat or race car model would use either a similar or exact shade. I went to an arts and craft shop and got a 2oz. bottle of touch-up paint for 0.89.

Cheers,
Butch

Eh, you have kids, so you're probably not single, and I'm not the type to worry too much over a few dings, but if I were you, I'd walk into the store, guitar in hand, and walk up to the cutest girl and the counter, and say, "excuse me, I was wondering if you could help me..."

That was my friend Michael who found that nailpolish - and if I remember correctly, it was Revlon Crimson number 35.
An awesome match; he brought the guitar to a Shoppers Drug Mart and had a woman help him find that match...
