Agree'd, I got about 20 or so from Target in the dollar bin last year(then they went to 50 a week later). Great on the thumb, cheap and they work nicely.

I used a candle when I first started and its not easy. Lighter colored ribbon may get some black smoke substance on it and its hard to control how much you burn.

I wouldn't use nailpolish too much of a pain plus what if small babies put the bow in their mouth. I wouldn't want to risk anything.
