I have a tear on the inside of my leg. To stop the tear, my mother applied clear polish. Is that safe?

^ Yes, it's perfectly fine - the polish may show on the tights/stockings, but otherwise it's a great (and safe) method of stopping the tear. Besides, I'd rather have polish show on my tights than a tear. :p

The nail polish will work fine. It may make your tights a little sticky at first, but it will stop the tear from getting any bigger.

I wore tights for the first time today since i was like five but I noticed that the tended to slip down, awkwardly so as i was wearing a short skirt. I was wondering if they were too big or if there was some secret I just dont know about keeping them in place.... I loved the look, and they were comfortable while up but they wouldn't stay...

^^ when my tights did that recently, i had to replace them. i think sometimes the elastic just wears out. or it may help to get the tall or "control top" version of tights.

^ yeah, i keep on acquiring them too! they're cheap, they finish a look, and they can also completely change up an outfit. plus, they're warm.

Can someone recommend super-warm tights? I have Wolford merino wool tights and they are fabulous and very warm, but at $60+ a pair, I find it hard to keep buying them. Any other suggestions?
