It’s really amazing in how many ways you can use nail polish other than for painting your nails. It’s always to have a bottle with you everywhere and you will see why from the list below:
1. Prevent jewelry from tarnishing
Use clear nail polish for those costume jewelry you just got and prevent them from tarnishing, it will keep them looking like new.
2. Prevent a run in a stocking from getting worse
All women had at one point in their lives an event where they found out a run in the tights. Use clear nail polish to paint it over the tear and this will prevent them the tights from getting worse.
3. Change color of costume jewelry
If you have old jewelry that you don’t really use because they got or look overused, change the way they look by painting them.
4. Store your nail polish upright in a box with polish on the top to indicate color
If you have many nail polish bottles and you want to keep them more organized store them in a box and stick a nail sample in the top of each bottle.
5. Paint your keys
Paint your keys into a different color than what is normal and this way you can make your key chain much prettier and you can tell which key is matching what. See details at Colour Code for Your Keys – Nail Polish.
6. Paint your shoes
If you got tires of conventional shoes it is time for a change. For example you can paint the sole of your high heels in a different color. Add more cotes one over another for better results.
7. Fix a scratch
You can actually fix scratches from shoes you stopped wearing and you can actually put them back for wearing. The challenge is to find a color that is very similar to your shoe color. Make a little test on your hands before applying.
8. Thread a needle faster by adding top coat to it
If you have thread that is frayed and you really need to sew something add some nail polish to the end of the thread and voila, you can start sewing.
9. Seal an envelope
You need to seal an envelope and you don’t have glue at your disposal? Use colorless nail polish for sealing.
10. Paint your bobby pins
Want to create beautiful hair accessories from bobby pins? Just buy nail polish in the color you want and paint the pins. Use glittery ones for better effects.
