Clear nail varnish was designed for the final top coat on our nails to seal the colour, protect it and give it a shine. However it has lots of other uses which you may not know about, for DIY, to protect and even heal! Here are 12 tricks and uses for your transparent nail varnish.
1) For ladders in tights
Apply the varnish on top the top and bottom of the ladder, leave it to dry. This will prevent the ladder getting bigger.
2) To seal writing
Applying clear nail varnish will prevent writing on your labels, animal name collars etc. from rubbing off. For example, on your make up brushes or products. If you cover the product code in varnish, the text won’t rub off for when you want to buy it again.
3) Make sure buttons don’t fall off
By dabbing a little onto the middle of the button ontop of the thread, you will be sure that they button doesn’t fall off. Also paint the end of your laces so that they don’t fray.
