Winter weather can make nails dry and brittle. If your nails are prone to breakage, try this quick and easy hack to fix a cracked or broken nail! Long live your manicure!
TEA BAG FIX FOR BROKEN NAILS
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- 1 paper teabag
- nail glue
- clear top coat
- nail file
- your favorite nail polish!
WHAT TO DO
This method works best if the broken part of the nail is still attached at some point to the rest of the nail.
Cut out a small piece of the tea bag, large enough to cover the surrounding area around the break but not larger than the actual nail. Using nail glue, adhere the tea bag to the broken area. Use the tea bag to connect the pieces of nail, closing the break. Add a layer of top coat to the entire nail, sealing everything in. Then, trim the tea bag to the shape of your choosing and file it down so that the edges are smooth.
Paint the nail with your favorite nail polish and finish with another layer of top coat. Voila! You no longer have a broken nail!
