A person can use clear nail polish to inhibit the development of the virus, thus removing the wart, as stated by WebMD. However, this method is not effective as the use of a placebo in the treatment of warts.
To use a nail polish effectively, a person needs to apply the polish over the wart. The first layer should be left to dry prior to adding another layer. This should be repeated severally until the layers add up to five. This method works like duct tape, thus preventing air supply to the warts. After using this method consistently for a while, the warts will start to disappear.
