Because we all love nail polish and all things nails, I thought it would be a good idea to learn how to fix a broken nail. Look at the picture below. This is my broken nail (sad face!!)
Wanna learn how I fixed it? Keep reading...
I used it as a guide adding in my changes here and there.
Things you'll need: small nail scissors, a nail file, a four sided buffer, a tea bag, a base coat, tweezers and nail glue (I used super glue, it's all I had).
Step 2: Use your small scissors to cut a small patch out of your tea bag. Make sure the patch will cover your break. Use your tweezers to match up the patch with the break.
Step 3: Use your nail/super glue to glue the broken part of the nail back to your nail. Let dry for a couple seconds until you think it's a little sticky.
Step 4: Place the tea bag patch that you cut on your nail where the break was.
Step 6: Let this dry. It shouldn't take very long.
Step 7: Use your buffer to buff the patch and make it as smooth as possible. you want to make sure that your nail is completely smooth. You can also use your file to file your nail if you'd like. You may be able to see the patch, but you DO NOT want to feel it.
Step 8: Add your base coat and paint your nails as you'd like.

in the week you can't tell my nail
I used this method to save my nail because I wanted to blog some nail swatches for you guys and I'm already suffering from a small middle fingernail break. I don't think this is a permanent fix. This is just something temporary and will last as long as you are gentle with your nail.
