Get The Most From Your Makeup: Clear Nail Polish

Ever buy a new pair of pantyhose and snag them on your first wear? Not only do you feel like you've just wasted anywhere from $5 to $20, but you're also stuck in public with a potential fashion disaster on your hands. A small snag can turn into an eyesore of a run.

But have no fear! Take a small amount of clear nail polish and glob it right onto your hosiery. Yeah, it's sticky and smelly, but wait a minute or two for it to dry and you'll stop your snag, tear or run right in its tracks. I've been using this little trick for years and it's never failed me.

Also, I've read several sources (although I am not sure how reputable they are) that claim you can apply environmentally friendly clear nail polish to ringworm to help kill it. This definitely seems a little bit dangerous to me, but I'm curious to know if anyone has tried this. Or are there just some limitations to clear nail polish?
