Every person has dealt with a broken nail in their lifetime. It really sucks, but it happens all the time. However, the best thing you can do is fix that nail as soon as you can.
In this article you will find couple of steps you should follow in case you have a broken nail. You will need few ingredients, but you will most likely already have them at your home. Here are the steps:
Steps To Repair Your Broken Nail
Gather All Necessary Supplies
You need to take everything you need first, such as cotton balls, nail polish remover, q-tips, nail file, buffing bar, tweezers, and nail glue.
Clean The Nail
Then, you should start by removing the nail polish from the nail. Soak a cotton ball into the nail polish remover and wipe the nail.
You should now use the nail glue and apply it on the tear of the nail. Let it dry for 20 seconds approximately.
Flatten It Out
Now, take the broken part with the tweezers and stick it to the nail. Apply a light pressure on the nail for one minute or more, until you are sure that the broken nail will not move if you release the pressure.
Buff And Smooth
When the glue is completely dry, you should buff the area with a buffing stick and make the area with the glue as smooth as you can. However, don’t overdo it because you might end up losing the glue and then you will need to start all over again. Pay attention on the edges so they can be synchronized with the nails.
Clean It Up
The final step you need to do is soak one q-tip into a nail polish remover and remove any glue that is on your hands and fingers. After that you can paint the nail in the colour you like. Nobody will even notice that it was broken in the first place!
