Would a cheap nitrocellulose transparent nail polish (diluted with acetone?) work for finishing rope ends?

good idea,
not that i know my nail polishes,
i think it'd go well on the trimmed end of a constrictor knotted taper

the fumes would kill me

but slower drying?  easier to manage that a tube of superglue,
and there's the type of nail polish, not sure of names, that sets softer
