Lock tight has different strengths so does nail polish color matter, yes dumb joke.
Seriously what have worked for you?
Clear nail polish works the same as the Blue Loctite. The clear nail polish is way cheaper than Loctite. Nail polish would work fine for keeping your point secure. Personally I use string wax along with pliers, it drives me crazy to have nock points coming loose.

Like mentioned above, I have used clear nail polish for years mounting scopes and some other gunsmithing jobs. The clear nail polish holds great but will "break" loose with a little pressure.
