My personal favorite is to use clear nail polish to secure buttons after sewing them on. This is especially handy when sewing buttons onto stuffed toys since they are impossible to sew back on when they fall off. A good safety feature too.
I painted the hardware of a wooden toilet seat with clear nair polish. It keeps the hardware from rusting or turning green.
Take a pretty rock or shell that you or a child found at the beach and paint with clear polish. They always seem to look better wet, this keeps them this way forever!
I have used nail polish to: paint plastic buttons to upgrade them - paint eyeglass frame to change color - Metallic polish to brighten up old costume jewelry, etc.
Be careful of the fumes, tho!
You can use it to paint over the bottom of shaving cream can if you leave it in the shower. It stops it from rusting and leaving a ring on your tub. You can also waterproof matches by dipping the flammable head in the clear polish. It takes a little time, but if you think you might need some on a camping trip or water trip, it's worth it.
I use nail polish to paint features on rag dolls. I bought black and blue on purpose and had some dark pink. It hasn't washed out yet.
I "paint" ugly plastic planters with old leftover nail polish-just smear it on and use different colors-pretty!
I even painted some old blue scuffed up boots and someone thought they were designer ones! can use for any scuffed up shoes, purses etc.
possibilities are endless!
Any hunters out there, my dad would put a dab of red nail polish on the site of his gun. That little knob at the end of the barrel.
