Wart Removal With Nail Polish

Interesting... watching The Doctors, and there was a Mom on the show who used nail polish to get rid of her son's wart.

She used an old bottle that she didn't want anymore (I don't think you'd want to use it on your nails after applying it to a wart), and she covered the wart on her son's foot. A few days later she picked the nail polish off and the wart came off with it - painlessly and effectively.

I think it probably works on the same principal as duct tape, in that it triggers an immune system response. When I used the duct tape it took several weeks, whereas the nail polish supposedly works much faster.

I think this is a remedy I'm going to try if we ever have another wart appear.

I know, it sounds bizarre... mind you nail polish seems toxic enough - it's not a stretch to think that it could kill a wart.

Is it bad that I'm kind of wishing I had a wart to try it on?

Have tried the duct tape remedy and it really does work super fast
