Scratched eyes? Help!

Is there any way to fix scratched eyes? There was a tiny bit of glue on some and I grabbed an xacto knife and… I read clear nail polish will work. I have an electric nail file too, if that might help. Ideas??

I read clear nail polish yellows over time

Oh boo. Hmm

Use the same floor polish we gloss eyes with.
They keep changing the name. Future, Pledge…let me look it up.

Do you think if I put it on at this level of cloudiness and scratch it would look good with Pledge?



It should and it certainly won’t hurt to try.

I would take some alcohol on a q-tip and clean off as much reside as you can of whatever was there first. Then put the Pledge on it. It will definitely bring the glow of the eyes back and minimize scratches. If there is a thick residue of previous product on there it probably will not be able to disguise that completely but doing a coat and letting it dry then another coat an hour or so later should help to level it out some. The Pledge is thin like water so it only takes a drop or two to gloss eyes.

When I used alcohol on acrylic eyes it made them very cloudy. It would probably work if they’re glass eyes. If it’s super glue, that just doesn’t come off if my experience.

Cheap acrylic eyes will melt with strong alcohol. I have not had any issues using it on the Eyeco or BB eyes but I don’t saturate it either. I agree about super glue. That you can not get off. I didn’t catch if that is what is on this doll of hers. Either way nothing to loose at this point with trying the Pledge.

I only use Eyeco, Pabol and BB acrylic eyes. Ruined 2 pairs with alcohol. What strength did you use?

70% rubbing alcohol last night. I also read acetone nail polish…? Idk I ordered that Pledge. So expensive!! Hopefully it works and won’t go bad in a month lol

It won’t go bad in a month. One bottle is pretty much a lifetime supply for doll eyes. Acetone melts plastic. I wouldn’t risk it.

Ok thank you for your help

I just did a repair on a cloud eye with a very fine scratch (I thought it was a hair). I cleaned the eye off the very best I could (and I took out all the eyelashes, hated doing it). I used paper glaze, did two coats let it dry between coats, looks great. I made charms using paper glaze a million years ago and it was pretty durable, fingers crossed it stay nice and shiny and doesn’t yellow. I think the clouding was from a little bit of varnish that got on the eye.
