Welcome to TU,
Try a search for Propionate on this site.
Here is one of the results that might answer a few of your questions.
I am not sure what is in Nitro Cellulose but I came across the product when searching for propionate. I never purchased or tested with any of it.

Nitro Cellulose Lacquer is basically same as nail polish
some stay clear when used as a top coat some dont they yellow over time
some causes paints to "bleed" when used as a topcoat on lures

One of the best places to go if you want a good explanation of a stuff:
By the way, I used nail polish to cover the blades of my spinner baits, and I was satisfied with the results. I may try the stuff on crankbaits as well.
