    Hmmm an outside the box idea would be nail polish. I'm told it comes in millions of colours...

    I have a similar BLX kit in Sequoia Red. I had some nicks on the hoops and took them to a local furniture restorer. They were able to match the color perfectly and relacquer the hoops beautifully. It's not at the price point of nail polish but they were as good as new.

    Another option to consider is to swap out the hoops for natural. I know it's not "OEM" but I also like that look.

    Kit is beautiful!!
