My suitcase has logos on it. They're small, but I'd like to obscure them to lower my likelihood of being victimized. Examples are here
It looks like there's a small dollop of clear, rubbery, plastic that covers them - to protect logo.
I was thinking of buying some black nail polish, and painting over them. Nail polish is supposed to be durable right? However, I've never had to buy nail polish before.
1. Is nail polish the right product for this?
2. Which brand / type should I get? Are there ones that are more durable than others?

I have been biting my fingernails for 30 years. I’ve stopped for short periods of time (a week or two) over the last 10 years but its never stuck. I’m 30 days into not biting them right now, and I’m thinking this could be the “last” time I quit. I have a few questions about the end of nail-biting and about general fingernail-related things that I guess I never figured out when I was an adolescent and didn’t have any. [more inside]

I accidentally washed a bottle of hot pink nail polish with a load of laundry. There are now streaks and splotches of hot pink nail polish covering all of the clothes in that load, plus the interior of the dryer. HELP. How can I fix this? Are all my clothes ruined (they are all dry at this point)? Can I get it off the inside of the dryer? [more inside]

I got my first pro manicure on Friday and the nail polish (acrylic, not gel) has already chipped on one finger. Sadness has ensued. [more inside]

I found out at the post office today that it is no longer possible to ship nail varnish or perfume (containing alcohol) from the UK to overseas. What are the rules the other way around? I asked at the counter but the lady selling me my stamp didn't seem to be sure. [more inside]

I like to paint my nails occasionally, but I get frustrated to go to all of the trouble of applying polish (and drying and drying) only to have the nail polish chip within a day or so (or even sooner). What can I do to help my nail polish last longer? [more inside]

Black tie wedding tomorrow. Thanks to my last AskMeFi, now have (rented) long black dress, silver open toe sandals, black seqin wrap, glittery silver necklace and bracelet, and handsome Bear husband escort in appropriate (rented) tuxedo . . . and only now I realize I'd better get a pedicure. But I have no idea what color my toes should be.
So, toe-nail-polish-wearing hivemind, can you please tell me what color polish I should get for this outfit?

I spilled pink nail polish on a green carpet. How can I get it out? I'm reluctant to try nail polish remover because I fear it will bleach the carpet.

Is Halloween the only time it's ok for straight guys to wear nail polish (either on hands or feet)? And even then, only black, is it? [more inside]

Looking for nail polish similar to Chanel Ciel de Nuit. My 10+ year old bottle of Urban Decay Frostbite is on its last legs, and the look-alikes mentioned here
have been similarly discontinued.
