Plantar warts are painful warts on the soul of the foot. Plantar wart removal is often as painful as having the wart itself. No one looks forward to the procedure at the doctors, that often involves freezing or cutting the wart off. This is an amazingly simple cure for plantar warts that anyone can do at home.

Wash the foot, paying special attention to the wart area. Use nice warm soapy water and get the foot thoroughly clean.

Dry the foot completely. A towel usually doesn't get skin completely dry, so let the foot air dry for a few minutes, or dry with a blow dryer on a low setting, before proceeding.

Plantar Wart Removal

Take the bottle of nail polish and shake it up, unless you are using a clear variety, then there is no need to do this.

Plantar Wart Removal

Unscrew the top of the bottle and, using the attached brush, paint the wart and the immediate area surrounding it. Make sure the wart area is completely covered by the nail polish.

Dry the nail polish. A hair dryer, on low, can help speed up this process. The nail polish must be completely dry before you walk off or put a sock on the foot.

Plantar Wart Removal

Allow the nail polish to sit there on the wart for a few days. The nail polish starves the wart of oxygen. That is why it is important to completely cover it with the nail polish. Within a few days to a week, it will fall of all on its own.

Tip

Nail polish will not harm the skin and will eventually flake off on it's own, or you can remove it with nail polish remover after the wart has fallen off.
