My LBS suggested I use this to cover multiple areas of paint chipping. My new Jamis Eclipse is red so I found a fairly close color. Every time I look at it, more chips.

Does anyone else do this? Is nail polish possibly bad for a steel frame?

It seems to adhere pretty well. I use a second coat which seems to seal the area pretty well.
it sucks, use autobody paint, you can get small patch bottlesclimbo

in all colours from Autozone or Pepboys etc. i did it with a nice fire engine red on my fixed gear and it works great. Nail polish is too thick, several coats of a proper auto paint works great.
I agree..Dave Hickey

I can't find a match for my current bike (sort of an off-celeste not-quite-Bianchi), but I've used it in other colors for more than 20 years. No problems, and it fills little chips and nicks nicely.
If you find a big discount drugstore near a junior high school, you'll be able to sort through a couple of hundred colors....
