    Can the stuff be removed (like nail polish) if you don't like it?

    Yes, just take a piece of cotton or paper towel, dip it on nail polish remover, apply gently until the material softens, pry out.

    You can always pry it out with a screwdriver, but risk scratching you pistol.

    Are you using an UV light to show the glow. Hobbie stores also sell glow paint . What is the difference? How long does it last after exposed to light? 6 hours, forever?

    Gun sights paint: Glow-on vs the others

    Are you using an UV light to show the glow. Hobbie stores also sell glow paint . What is the difference? How long does it last after exposed to light? 6 hours, forever?

    No, I turn most lights off, I just leave the PC monitor on and a small lamp at the corner.

    Hobby stores also sell glow paint. What is the difference?

    We use only expensive Hi quality materials, we focus on quality not quantity.
    Hobby store bought glow paint is at the bottom of the glow scale. Of course you could find decent stuff in places like C#####'s and some online stores, some are just poster and "small project" items with the consistency of gel when they dry. Others are offered as gun sight paint but for the most par one has to paint a white background for the glow to "work".

    We've surpassed those pitfalls with Glow-On. When it cures is very solid, the initial glow is very strong, it doesn't need a white backdrop for it to work. We test constantly and just in case every vial has a glow dot on the top made with the same paint is inside the vial, as a reference of what you can expect when used properly.

    How long does it last after exposed to light? 6 hours, forever?

    If you mean how long can the glow be perceived in the dark, it can be perceived for hours. Very bright first, then soft glow, then very subtle.
    The thicker and bigger the application the longer the glow can be perceived.

    here are some tests:
