This quick fix for a chipped dish is 7 years old

chipped dish painted with nail polish


Seven summers ago, I chipped one of my favorite small serving dishes. Looking for a quick fix, I grabbed the blue nail polish I keep in the kitchen cabinet for marking pots, and filled in the chipped china edge.

I figured, if it has been deemed safe enough to affix to ones body, then it's likely okay for use with food. After all, the nail polish manufacturers must be aware that some nervous people nibble their nails.

Today, I realized this 'quick fix' is seven years old. Despite frequent use, it's still holding up nicely!

thank you thank you !!! my Mikasa dishes are my pride & joy (I don't own a lot to be proud of!) and I was terribly distressed that two plates have chips. I can't wait to get home and try this :)
