    You can dribble on wine glasse and make pretty designs. They will have to be hand washed after that. Or even use to make designs on a coaster and then spray with a clear coat to protect it.

    When I go to potlucks and have to take my own serving utensils, I use the nail polish to put my initials on the under side of the utensils.

    I have used it to paint sculpey crafts. Also the end of eyeglasses to identify reading from driving. I have painted jewelry with clear polish to keep from tarnishing.

    Clear nail polish painted on the wires or posts of earrings can keep you from having an allergic reaction to some metals. I also use it for paint touch-ups on jewelry, ceramics, wood and even plastic. Have fun!

    if you have eye glasses and the screws keep loosening, just dab a little clear nail polish on the screws to keep them from loosening so often.

    you can use old or leftover nail polish to decorate mugs etc...a bowl of warm water, put a few drops of nail polish in, swirl around with a cocktail stick....dap your mug in and pull out gently. then let dry..

    My mom used to paint on rocks with old nail polish. You can make a rock look like a lady bug with red and black nail polish or a bumblebee with black and yellow. You can paint flower petals on them and let your imagination just run wild. Some of hers included a Santa Claus, a polar bear, a face and whatever image she could see in the rock. Fun and kind of therapeutic. 😂
    Have fun!
