Case modding, the polish way

If you're still using CD-Rs like me, and you store them in cardless "slim" jewel cases, you've probably noticed that text written on the spine is pretty invisible:

But fortunately there's always that bright-colored nail polish you never actually use.

Text appears! It's magic!
