    Cateye Strada Wireless: color change pink to black?

    OK, so I can get 2 of these (I need 2) in pink for just about the price of 1 black.

    I'm thinking black fingernail polish (like the Goth girls use )

    I'm thinking it would look OK and wear well. Unless for some reason the plastic case would have some adverse reaction.

    What do you think?

    I'd worry that the solvent in the nail polish would attack the plastic case and that the polish might run into and damage the operating buttons. Leave them pink and tell anyone who asks you are supporting Breast Cancer research. Pink had lost it's strictly feminine image these days.

    Yeah, that's a clever idea. In the cold light of day I have to admit that the nailpolish idea was not my best and brightest.

    Nobody's going to ask about it. But I'm going to have to look at it. Sort of reverse bling. Sort of invalidates all my other bling attempts.
