As as in like is my nail polish electrically conductive? Because I’m doing water cooling and I doesn’t want the water to drip on my graphics card and motherboard

Take  some metal and test it. 

I think my top coat has far less ingridents but uses the same cellulose basis and does not conduct (above 2 meg ohm). Keep in mind that it will yellow and don't protect if there is any mechanical movement/stress.

 

Like MorganO sad better don't use it for this purpose. Just check with paper towels that everything is watertight when building and after every maintenance.

If you water cool your computer properly there's no need to go to this extreme unless you're going LN or plan to use LM.

Unless your going into extreme cooling, or possible simply going with a sub-ambient setup and are worried about condensation.... theres no need to use such methods on ur components.

I just want to put extra layer of protection because my cpu had been delided and reapplied with liquid metal

Just use fresh fluid. Wont have to worry about a leak then. Not sure why your system would leak after long term.

Real conformal coating is $10 a can online... if you are worried why not just use the correct product?
