A glass tank when using the sponges I have been using them for years.

You either have the wrong ones or you tank is not glass.

I heard nail polish could do the trick, but I'm worried about it being toxic, shrimpo I used the green part lightly no pressure and yes it's glass 100%

Looks like you did not use the Glass non scratch pad or like I did once I has a small piece of substrate in the scourer.

Yeah you need to make sure there are no pieces of gravel or sand stuck in your sponge while you were scrubbing. Have you tried using an aquarium scraper for your tank? I find they are so much easier to use and more effective at removing algae.
