Sally's is nail polish!!!  ha, ha!!!  That is why I couldn't find it in any of the fly tying sites!!!  Boy, glad I'm on the beginners section.  Might break into my wife's make up bag first. 

Be careful, they get pretty possessive about that stuff and they tend to know exactly if something is out of place ! Not sure it's worth the $1.90. My wife said , "let me buy you a bottle of your own" but I already had head cement so I could wait till her next trip to the beauty supply shop !!!

I really like how this one turned out.  It is a size 14.  I really appriciate all the helpful tips from everyone.  Most of them came in really handy.

Getting better.  Trying to get the head a bit neater and working with head cement.
