The clearcoat would go bad quick and the nail polish would probably eat into the paint. I wouldn't.

Thanks - "Drive more, worry less" seems to be good advice!

180 degree V6? Didn't Ferrari refer to some of their flat 12 engines as 180 degree V12's? Maybe because their engines had opposing cylinders share rod journals on the crank though?
