At the moment my short-as-they-can-be nails are painted bright red because it delights me to catch a glimpse of them noting notes on banjo or fiddle that way. Anyone else share that feeling or is it just me?!

I don't paint my nails, but I understand the appeal of seeing them dance over the fingerboard while playing!

Brava! A brave choice! Nail polish on these old wrecks of mine would be too silly. I marvel to watch them move through a tune, though. I understand less and less how it's possible.

Nail polish has always felt like my nails can't breathe to me. So I don't use it.

Here's a thought. Neon nail polish and blacklights. Not just an old-time dance...an old-time rave enlightenedwink

Okay, rosinhead. I'm liking this idea a lot. Nail polish or not, if I can find a way to make a blacklight jam happen at an evening jam at the campout before the Santa Barbara Old-Time Fiddlers' Festival, I'm going to do it! Even if it's only me. :) That sounds like a blast and I never would have thought of it on my own. I knew I posted this for a reason! [laugh]

ChickenMan boxbow It really is amazing, isn't it? The way fingers dance over the fingerboard. That's why I love the Tiki Parlour videos so much. It's so easy to watch people's hands and fingers up close and I find that mesmerizing.

I don't know....I think the nail polish is key in this situation.  If neon isn't your thing then just find a white or glow in the dark (i'm sure with halloween around the corner it's out there).  I bet the blacklight will make the bow hair and rosin dust illuminate some too.  If I wasn't so dang far away I would certainly join you in this venture.
