How to: Fix a torn nail

Hi ladies! Today”s post is on how to fix your nail if you tore it. In the process of packing my hands keep getting so dirty from all of the dust that collected in cupboards. I hate that feeling of dirt and unfortunately my repeated hand washing caused my nails to get dry and weak and they break with the slightest of bumps, now when I bump an already short nail they split and tear right into my nail’s soft squishy part, ouch!

So here is what you will need to fix your torn nail:

  • A tea bag
  • Nail glue
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers (Optional)
  • Nail file or buffer
Prepare your nail by removing all nail polish and then wash and dry your hands. Cut the teabag open and throw out the tea leaves, cut a tiny piece, a bit bigger than the tear from the tea bag, apply some nail glue on your nail and then apply the piece of tea bag on top (use your tweezers to do this if you’d like) wait for it to dry and then apply another glue layer over.  Use your file or buffer to smooth any roughness, you can apply nail polish over and no one would even know! Now just sit back and let the tear grow out.
