I’m a nail technician; I take care of my nails like a pro, since well.. I am a professional! Even though I maintain my natural nails regularly, I still know deep down that a nail will eventually crack, peel, or break. If you find a nail at risk, don’t sweat it! It is not the end for that poor little guy! Here’s a way to fix your nails, just as I have done with one of mine with items you may already have at home!
Here’s a picture of that nasty split my thumb nail made. 3/4 of the nail tip had cracked and was starting to peel..
Here’s a picture of the materials you need: A nail file, a nail buffer, nail glue, scissors, and a emptied/clean tea bag! For mine, I used a silk tea bag which works perfectly, but any type of tea bag would do!
Now here’s the work (it’s easy!): Cut a piece of silk/tea bag to fit your nail. Place it on your nail and apply a generous amount of nail glue until you notice that every part of silk/tea bag has absorbed some glue. (You may have to fiddle with it and apply pressure to certain points to ensure the piece of fabric cooperates with the glue.) Wait until the glue is completely dry. Use your nail buffer to buff away the mesh-like texture until your nail is completely smooth. Use a nail file to file the edges if necessary. Here’s a picture of the piece of silk + glue, awaiting for it to fully dry.
.. And here’s the final product. A saved nail ready to be lacquered up :)
