I got a plantar wart about a year ago, and was unsure of what it was at first. It started out small, on the bottom of my left heel. It soon grew to be a pretty big nasty wart and a smaller one just recently popped up next to it. I finally discovered the identity of these by doing research on the internet, and was really glad when I found I could get rid of them. They are ugly, embarassing, gross, and painful little monsters and I wanted them OFF OF MY FOOT! I was looking on this site and saw a lot of posts about using ACV, but they all talked about a lot of pain, and as you can probably relate to, I was not too psyched about having to go through that. Plus, I have a busy schedule and don't have time for any more pain than the warts were already causing me. But then I came across one that talked about using clear nail polish, which I had, so I thought I might try it. I put the nail polish on both warts after my shower at night. It dried surprisingly fast. Within even a day I started to notice a difference: the warts were turning a darker color. I kept applying the nail polish every day, usually after my shower or whenever I thought of it, but I had no specific pattern. After a week, the warts were a dark brown/black-ish color and I no longer had any pain. One night, I noticed that the large wart was peeling, and I was able to peel it right off and discover actual skin underneath!!! It was still an open sore, but I was very happy that it was gone. I was also surprised because I thought the little one would be the first to go, but I'm still working on that one. This method was AMAZING!!! The only pain I felt the entire time was just the fact that after the wart was gone it was an open sore. And, I didn't even need to leave my house to get the treatment. I'm so happy I will be able to show my heel again without embarassment! I would really recommend this for people who want a cheap, pain-free method (and who doesn't)! :)

Are there different kinds of clear nail polish that work, or just any of them? I don't really know anything about or use a lot of any kind of nail polish, so could you help from that sort of perspective?

I don't think it matters, as long as it suffocates the wart. I used a clear nail polish that was a top coat (that you put on top of colored nail polish).

Yes, it helps to use a pumice stone to scrape away the dead skin first, but there's no need to make it bleed or anything. Hope it helps(:

The sore that you talk about after you peeled the wart off... how long did that take to heal?

It didn't hurt to peel it away because the pain was gone after only a few days. And the sore only took a couple days or so, just be sure to keep it covered with a bandaid so it doesn't get infected again. Hope it helped :)
