Is there any reason, and would it be OK to seal the primer area with fingernail polish or something similar? Would it work to keep moisture our or is it completely un-necessary?

It is not necessary. If you want to do so, fingernail polish is OK. They do make stuff specifically for this.

I think the primary reason for sealing primers would be to keep moisture out of the priming compound and powder. That said, unless you're reloading shotshells for duck hunting around open water or for ammunition to be stored in less than ideal conditions, I can't see how much of a benefit it would be.
