Top 15 Nail Polish Lifehacks: Incredible Everyday Uses You’ll Be Glad To Know


1. Label Your Sports Gear

 Tired of confusing your golf balls with your buddies. Make it clear who go on the green first, by putting a dot of bright nail polish on your ball supply. This also works well with batting gloves and other sporting gear.


2. Label Poison Containers

Prevent someone from accidentally grabbing dangerous items. Use dark red or other easily visible nail polish to label the poisons. Draw an unmistakable X on the label as well as the lid or spout.


3. Seal An Envelope

Brush a little nail polish along the underside of the flap, seal it, and your done! Add some flair to a special card by brushing your initial in nail polish over the sealed flap tip.


4. Waterproof Address Labels

When you’re sending a parcel on a rainy day, a little clear polish brushed over the address information will make sure your package goes to the right place.


5. Make A Shiny Paperweight

To create paperweights that look like gemstones, or interesting rocks for the base of your potted plants, try this:

  • Find some palm-sized, smooth clean rocks
  • Put about 1/2 inch water into a pie pan
  • Put 1 clear nail polish onto the water.
  • The polish will spread out over the water surface.
  • Holding the rock with your fingertips, slowly roll it in the water to coat it with the polish.
  • Set the rock on a newspaper to dry.


6. Restrict Your Salt Intake

Is it time to start watching that sodium intake? If your favorite saltshaker dispenses a little too much, just paint a few of the holes shut with nail polish.


7. Protect Your Belt Buckle’s Shine

Cover your new belt buckles with a coat of clear nail polish. You’ll prevent oxidation and guarantee a gleaming first impression.


8. Keep Laces From Unraveling

Neaten the appearance of frayed shoelaces, and extend their life. Dip the ends in clear nail polish and twist the raveled ends together.


9. Get Rid of a Wart

In order to get rid of warts and prevent spreading the virus to others, cover them with nail polish. The wart should be gone or greatly diminished in one week.


10. Prevent Loss of Buttons

Keep that brand-new shirt in good shape by putting a drop of clear nail polish on the thread in the buttons. It prevents the thread from fraying.


11. Stop a Windshield Crack From Spreading

If you’ve developed a small crack in your windshield, stop it cold with some clear polish. Working in the shade, brush the crack on both sides of the glass with polish to fill it well. Move the car into the sun so the windshield can dry.


12. Plug a Hole In Your Cooler

Seal the hole with two coats of nail polish to hold ice and other melted substances.


13. Keep Chipped Car Paint From Rusting

If your car suffers small dings and chips, you can keep them from rusting or enlarging by dabbing clear nail polish onto the damaged areas.


14. Tighten Loose Screws

Do you find yourself tightening certain pull screws once too often. Keep them in place by brushing a little clear polish on the screw threads, insert the screws, and let dry before using again.


15. Mend Holes In Window Screens

You notice a small hole has been poked in your window or door screen. If the hole is no more than about 1/4 inch in diameter, you can block the bugs and keep the hole from getting bigger by dabbing a bit of clear nail polish.

  • I can hardly wait for morning to try some of these suggestions – all practical! Another use for clear finger nail polish is coating chigger bites. If I have already scratched them, the polish will sting about 5 seconds, but it will sufficate the chigger. That ends the itching. You will probably forget about the polish and it will come off in 2 or 3 days. I used this on my children and we used it at children’s camp. Be sure to forewarn children that it will sting just a little.
