i read that warts need air to live, so I thought that perhaps cutting off the air supply would get rid of a wart I have on my arm, and one on my leg. I applied a coating of clear nail polish on the warts every day, and within a week I could see shrinkage of the warts. both are almost completely gone now... I hope this helps others.

My daughter had a plantars wart on the ball of her foot. The thought of her going to dr to have it burned out or cut out as I did as a kid... I went on line and found..... NAIL POLISH. They said clear I used pink... The point is it cannot breath... So it dies.... I painted her skin on location every couple days.... Eventually it peeled and came right out! Took a few weeks.... Very happy... most important...PAINLESS

I had a wart on my finger and through my Dr. had it burned off, and it kept coming back(5 times) Aco-volunteer suggested I use clear nail polish and reapply it often, which I did and about 3 weeks later it was gone and knock on wood that was 4 years ago and its still gone. I think I suffocated it and I wish I had used that method and saved myself $100.00.

Hello Everyone * If you have a nasty plantar wart(s), PLEASE READ THIS! I'm 31 years old and I have had these nasty plantar warts on the bottom of my big toe for 2-3 years. It's the size of a quarter(in clusters) on my big toe and it has spread to my other toe's and on several other smaller spots on the bottom of my foot. They spread, because I would exfoliate my heels and also would try and "sand" down the wart.(PLEASE DON'T DO THIS) warts are very contagious. It would also swell up when it was wet. YUCK! I have tried everything possible to get rid of this nasty thing. OTC wart removers, Peroxide, Duct Tape, Alcohol and then I was watching an episode of "The Doctors" a lady had called in and said she had used clear "topcoat" finger nail polish on her sons wart and it was gone in a few days. So, I said what the heck.... I will try that too! I applied the nail polish every night after my shower. Every 3 days I would peel the layers of polish off the wart. Each time I would peel the built up polish off, you could see small layers of the wart coming off. I cont. to do this for a few weeks. I was not going to stop. Then as I notice each week how it was getting smaller, smaller and smaller. WOW I am so amazed and just estatic about this, IT"S COMPLETELY GONE!!! NO scarring, no markings, nothing....just normal clean toe! So Amazing, I just had to share this with others!

I noticed this wasn't mentioned. I use to have 2 warts near the base of my right thumb. They didn't hurt or irritate, but I hated that everone used to either cringe at them or ask me if the warts were painful when they saw the warts. The wart remover plasters never worked. I read from somewhere that nail polish can help to remover warts, so I gave that a try. I applied clear nail polish to the warts, repplying every so often to ensure that there was always a coating over the warts. The nail polish is a lot less noticable than a wart remover plaster is! I can't remember how long it took (probably just a month or so), but one day as I prepared to reapply the nail polish, I noticed that the warts were GONE. Not a single trace of them was left, and there was absolutely no scaring. The skin looked perfectly normal! I was so happy! It's been 3 years since then, and the warts have not come back.
