Here are a couple of ways to create your own waterproof stick matches for camping trips. Melt a small amount of paraffin wax in a double boiler and dip your the match head in the melted wax, then let dry. Or, coat the match head with clear nail polish.
nail polish is flammable. i would not coat a match with it if i knew i would be lighting the match. yes dipping the match in regular candle was makes it water proof.
