6. Protect Sensitive Skin. Allergic to nickel, but still want to wear jeans once in a while? Cover any skin-irritating metals with a coat of nail polish. Though many people use clear polish for this, using a colorful polish makes it easier to tell when it needs to be reapplied. This works for jewelry, too!
7. Keep Costume Jewelry Looking Great. Let’s face it, not everyone can afford to be draped in diamonds and 14 karat gold. For the rest of us, here’s a great trick: apply a layer of clear nail polish to cheap costume jewelry. Not only will it prevent green wrists, it’ll also protect the coating and extend its life.
8. Keep Buttons in Place. Never lose a button again! When you notice a loose button, apply a dab of clear nail polish on the fraying thread. This will also work on fraying shoelaces.
9. Prevent Broken Glasses. Opticians have long used this trick to extend the life of glasses. After they’ve been tightened, apply a little dab of clear nail polish over the screws.
