Good news bad news.
Good news: Nail polish makes an excellent wart remover.
Bad news: I had to have a wart on my finger in order to know that. Gross.
Good news: Wart is now gone.
I noticed a small wart on my finger. Warts totally gross me out, although I have read that they are perfectly normal and natural. Some people (like me) are just more susceptible to them.
There are several over-the-counter remedies to remove common warts. You can also get them froze off at the doctor’s office.
One remedy that I have tried, and has worked, has been duct tape.
This time around I tried nail polish. I read that to kill a wart it had to be suffocated, which is why duct tape works so well. I used a flesh-colored polish from a french manicure set. The polish was so thin that it was easily covered by a oversized cocktail ring. It was much less obvious, and therefore less embarassing, than duct tape.
This new remedy was so effective that I question if I even had a common wart in the first place.
Now would be an excellent time to note that I am not a doctor. Although I highly endorse painting yourself with nail polish, I am not responsible for you.
