Black nail polish, not just for goths

Patent leather shoes get used a lot in theater especially for those formal wear party scenes. The problem is sometimes they crack or get scuffed and torn up on the set.

My favorite trick for patent leather shoes is black nail polish.  It is great for covering up scuffs and cracks that may happen but unlike regular black shoe paint it is also has some shine.


  1. My husband has black shiny shoes like this for his military uniform and this tip sounds great!

    Does the brand of nail polish matter?

  2. I don't think the brand matters as long as it is a shiny finish as opposed to matte or crackle.
