It’s like one minute your nails are as awesome as I am – I deserve to be an awesome model and the next minute you’ve broken that dreaded nail and it all falls apart. As going to the salon at this time is not safe and expensive, we thought we would give you a detail on how to deal with this situation on your own at home.
4 tips and tricks to fix a cracked nail at home:
File It Down to fix a cracked nail
Okay, this can be difficult to deal with, especially if you are obsessed with your long fingernails, but when you have broken your fingernail, filing and trimming it is your best option. Split nails usually occur at the end, so they’re pretty easy to fix. If it is small, you may only have to file into the shape, but if the split is large, you may need to cut it first and then file into the shape you want.
Quickly fix your nails with glue
Applying nail glue is a great option if you plan to wait until you can get to a nail appointment. All you need to do is apply nail glue to the broken part and press it together for a few seconds. Once it has dried, you can clean off any excess glue by buffing the area. You can even apply a coat of nail polish to seal the deal
Tea bag to the rescue
Yes, it sounds a little strange, but this method really works. First, cut a tea bag so that it is the right size to fit the broken part of the nail. Then apply a thin layer of nail glue to the area and lay the tea bag with tweezers. Cover it with glue and let it dry. Once it’s stabilized, buff the nail so that the texture is smooth and voila! You can apply your favorite shade of nail polish on it.
Press on Nails work
Sometimes your nail is broken past the save point. In this case snap nails are your best bet. Pick the ones with a nice print on them and stick them on your real nails until they grow in length.
