Maryland Owner Gives Her 1993 Saturn SL a Nail Polish Paint Job

Ben Wojdyla from Jalopnik by way of the Maryland Gazette: Jill Bell noticed a scratched spot in a dent on the hood of her 1993 Saturn and decided to cover it with nail polish before the onset of winter caused it to rust and spread. When it held up to the elements, Jill, an avid quilter, wondered why she couldn't cover the entire car in a quilt inspired paint job of the same stuff. Over the course of a year, Jill collected unused bottles of nail polish from her friends and worked at creating a patchwork pattern reminiscent of her favorite past time.
