I have the hardest time with keeping my Nylons in good shape. Whenever I put them on, my nails (I keep them short) gouge a hole in them causing them to run.
Today, it happened again. This time it was on the hip and because that part doesn’t show, I wore them anyways. I knew that it would be that pairs last night to dance.
But then, I remembered something that I heard a long time ago. I heard that you can use clear nail polish to prevent them from running more.
All you have to do is trace the perimeter with the polish. Make sure to saturate it well. I put a peice of paper inside the leg to prevent it from soaking through to the layer behind it. Its dry now and I gave it a good stretch. It didn’t lengthen the run! It worked! I will update you as to how it holds up through the next few wash and drys. If you have any tights or Nylons with a run in the toe, go try this out! I used CND Fast-Set Top Coat. Keep on dancin’ baby. Do you have any suggestions for mending or preventing nylon runs?
