Paint around the rip or tear with fingernail polish. Clear or fleshy pink tones of polish blend in best.

Here's a great tip you can do if you get a run in your pantyhose! While still wearing them, simply take clear nail polish and paint over the run and let it dry. This will keep the run from growing bigger.

Try to carry a clear nail polish in your purse or keep one in your desk at work for just in case. It's always best if you can get to it as soon as you notice it before it gets too big!
