Your worst nightmare has just happened. Those nails that you have been taking such good care of has let you down and BROKE!! But don't panic all is not lost with a few simple steps harmony will be restored.
Firstly, if it is a complete break then there isn't much you can do I'm afraid take your file out and do what you must. If, however the break only crossed part of the nail then you are in luck as there is a salvation. All you need are a few things that any nail addict or indeed anyone might have.
If the break occurs when you are wearing polish then you will have to very carefully remove the polish. This may sting if the break is near the nail bed but it will be worth it. Once the nail is completely clear assess the damage. Next you are going to need nail glue and a teabag! Yes a teabag I havent lost my mind honest (although some of my close friends might disagree!)
Cut the teabag so that it is longer and wider than the break, this will provide added strength to the repair. Line up the break and a glue to the length of it. With a pair of tweezers (nail glue will stick your fingers together!) place the strip of teabag over the break. Smooth out the glue & teabag with the tweezers and if required add a little bit more glue to ensure it is completely saturated.
Once this has completely dried, take a white block buffer or whatever kind of buffer you have to smooth out the edges. Be careful not to buff to heavily over the break itself as you will effect the strength of the repair. Pop on your base coat of choice and your done! Ready for the next masterpiece!
And there you have it your precious nails are back to their beautiful selves! The repair will require replacing over time and keep it there until the break has naturally grown out.
