7 Nail Polish Uses You’ve Never Known

1. Stop stocking tears


This is probably a trick most people know. If your new tights or stocking begin to run, simply dab some clear nail polish at both ends of the run to keep damage to the lowest.

2. Thread a needle easily


We know how frustrating it can be, struggling with threading a needle. Next time, try this: dip the end of the thread into clear nail polish and allow it to dry. The end will then be hardened and you’ll find it much easier to thread it through the needle.

You can also paint it onto the ends of frayed shoelaces to keep them from unravelling.

3. Prevent luggage tag info from running


Apply a layer of clear polish over your contact details and address written on your luggage tag. This way, you won’t have to worry if poor handling or bad climate will make the information run.

4. Conceal car scratches
