Hi Everyone, Today I'm going to show you how to fix a broken nail

I haven't had the best luck with my nails this week

They were just around the perfect length, a little bit of tip but not too long

But unfortunately it broke when I was trying to dig through some boxes

And as you can see, it broke below the nail tip which means it's going to be uncomfortable for a few days before it grows out

And also it's such a shame that usually when one nail breaks, you probably end up cutting the rest as well

But before you do that, here is something you could try

Whether it's to let your nails grow out a bit more, or if you have a special event which you want your nails to look good for

And your nails conveniently broke just before it, this is a little temporary fix that will be able to keep your nails long for a few extra days

Here are the tools you will need. Some Scissors, a tea bag, nail glue and a nail buffer

First cut out a little section from the tea bag around half a cm wide

Then open that up and shorten that piece to a little bit longer than the area you are fixing

Place it on the nail to see if it covers the area. We want to cover a bigger area to secure it better

Next use some nail glue and cover up the area on the nail where you will be placing the tea bag

Place the cut out over the glue and it will immerse into it

While that is still wet, move the piece around the nail and make sure you push the edge right to the side so you can mend the broken areas

If you leave a gap, then the crack on the side will tend to catch onto things and rip open the nail again

let that sit for about 30min to an hour until it dries and becomes hardened

Now that the nail has been mended. Everything should work as normal

you won't catch any hairs on the cracks no more and it is fairly strong and secure

Just to fix up the cosmetics a little bit. Use a nail buffer and buff away the edges of the bits that's sticking out

Do not over buff, the material used is already very thin, if you buff too much, it might undo all your hardwork

So just try to only get the edges of the patch so it blends inwith the natural nail

When you're done it should look something like this. The edges are smoothed out, but the middle section holding the nail together is still raised.

Now check that the nail is still strong. And apply your manicure as normal with base coat and base color

you shouldn't be able to tell that you actually broke your nails. no one will be non the wiser

If for some reason your nail broke off completely or you just need a little bit more support for your nail tips, apply a fake nail on top

That way, you can keep the length of your other fingers and still have a nice set of mid or long length nails
