Bought some clear nailpolish but im not all that sure if it works well for this or not. In not even 100% sure if its conductive or not ( the nailpolish ) but it shouldnt be.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The best thing to use is liquid electrical tape, if you don't have any you can use regular electrical tape. This would be for the part you have circled in red next to the dye.
The part in green doesn't need to be covered. Just be sure when you put the IHS back on, it doesn't touch those spots, could cause your cpu to short out
