Homemade Waterproof Matches: Fingernail Polish vs. Wax. When it comes to homemade waterproof matches, which one is best, wax or fingernail polish? To answer that question I put together a little video about making homemade waterproof matches.


I felt the wax dipped matches worked better than the fingernail polish matches. They seemed to strike just as good as the fingernail polish matches, and the wax dipped matches burned longer hotter than fingernail polish dipped.

In the homemade fire starter kit I put together both wax and fingernail polish matches were included.
