In the case of this one, the verdict is a strong hell no.
The result? I don't even have a picture of the monstrosity, as my hands were coated in a disgusting layer of vaseline and nail polish (I also lacked the foresight to only do one hand at a time). I attempted to wipe the vaseline away, only to find my hands coated with a multi-colored oil slick that didn't wash off.
And my nails? Instead of a marbled look, I ended up with weird, streaky, uneven color combo. Not even remotely passable.
Everything came off with enough hand-washing. When the Vaseline was good and scraped off, I was able to get the nail polish off my skin through repeated scrubbings with nail polish remover. I am definitely not doing that again!
