Not feeling quite confident enough to add actual hair to my helmet, I figured my best option would be to paint it. And as my creativity comes in bursts and must be attended to immediately lest it dry up like a raisin in the sun, I decided to use nail polish- the only 'paints' I had on hand.
First I removed the visor. No screwdriver? No problem!
Next, I picked my colors. I didn't want to use anything too dark, sheer, or expensive. I had purchased all of these polishes (except the white one on the left) in Thailand for about 50 cents each and the white one at a dollar store in the states for a dollar.
I took the white polish and drew a line down the middle. I wasn't too concerned about it being perfect. Not for any particular reason, I just didn't want to be concerned. Then I drew some geometric shapes on each side, filled in each shape with color, and went over any white lines that I'd accidentally painted over. Then I re-attached the visor.
My living room smelled like cheap nail polish for 3 days, but I really like the results! Other than wearing it while driving, Hong likes to wear it while playing guitar, and I like to wear it while playing with puppy.
