How To Keep Your Collection(2000) Concealer Looking Like New!

Hi everyone,
I just thought I'd share a little tip with you that I learnt a while ago. It's a tip concerning the Collection(2000) Lasting Perfection Concealer, the fantastic drugstore concealer who's packaging leaves a little to be desired. The problem is that the writing quickly rubs off the concealer tube, which isn't a massive problem but it is a little annoying.
So how do I keep my concealer looking like this....

instead of this?
The secret is...

Clear nail polish!
Not this Rimmel one in particular but just a clear nail polish(I wouldn't try Seche Vite top coat, as that can tend to peel off nails so it could do the same on the tube), all I did was paint the whole tube including the bottom with a good coat of clear polish and let it dry completely.
I've had my new concealer for almost 3 weeks and none of the writing on the tube has smudged or rubbed off! Result!

Have any of you tried this before?
This isn't an original idea by the way, I did hear it somewhere else I just can't remember where!

Thanks for reading,
