Did you use white-out or paint?

Fingernail polish. Pre clean with alcohol, dab on the polish.....before dry wipe excess of with NON acetone polish remover. May need multiple coats. My "G" around my Glock could use a little touch up but it's held up great after thousands of rounds and even one session of a 7 mag dump as fast as I could, needless to say she got a little hot on that one.;)

You may notice a thin residual smear on the slide after wiping off the excess. Don't worry. Just move to a clean spot on the paper towel, re-dab with remover and wipe again. One thing I did learn was only wipe once per spot on paper towel before moving to fresh spot to keep from smearing around. Also don't worry about the letters being rubbed off. Even though you wipe over the top of them with a paper towel, the polish stays down in the letters.

This is about a year old and is in need of a touch up, and is my every day carry at work.

Ive wanted to do this but have been a little worried. How do you remove it if its been there for a while? I might wanna trade up at some point and woukd be afraid that the local "purists" at the stores wouldknock me for it.

It wouldn't be hard to remove I'm sure, especially if you used fingernail polish. The fingernail polish remover would get it out if you just really doused a rag and applied it then used some fine point tool to get the polish out of the letters.

When I did mine I was wiping the excess with a soaked rag while the polish was wet/fresh and it did not remove it from tge lettering. I did redo one of the magazines after it was dry by using an old toothbrush soaked in polish remover and it took it right off.
