How to fix a broken nail with a teabag

Worst feeling in the world: you've just groomed your claws to perfection — we're talking buffed, filed, painted, THE WORKS! — and not even 24 hours later you notice a chip in one of the nails. Cue: mini meltdown! But before you go about chopping your talons shorter to rid your mani of any length discrepancies, try this quick little teabag trick instead. You'll wish you had learnt it earlier!

YOU'LL NEED

- Empty teabag

- Nail glue

- Mini pair of tweezers

- Nail file

- Buffer

- Scissors

DIRECTIONS

1. Buff the nail area to create a smooth surface.

2. Empty the contents of a teabag.

3. Cut out a tiny square that's small enough to fit over the chip in your nail.

4. Apply a thin layer of nail glue to the broken area.

5. Using your tweezers, pick up your teabag square and press down over the glue and allow to dry for a minute.

6. Apply another thin layer of glue over the top of your teabag square.

5. Once dry, use your nail file to trim away any fabric along the edges.

6. Buff the area to smooth it out and apply your varnish over the top.

And that's all it takes!
