How to stop screws from unscrewing

Isn't it annoying when your IKEA bed starts to squeak just because a screw has become loose? Paint screws with nail polish before you screw them in to prevent them from becoming loose. The nail polish will work as glue between screw and wood.

Is there a reason for using nail polish instead of glue?

Not if you have a suitable glue. :-) It should be able to bond metal and wood together.
