A broken nail can ruin even the best of the days. The first thing you should do in this situation is to take care of it in order to prevent infection. But if your nails are long and you broke only the top part, the nature of the problem is purely cosmetical.
Tea Bag Fix
If you find yourself in this situation and you happen to have a tea bag nearby, you can simply make your nail look like new in these few easy steps.
Step 1: Remove any remaining nail polish from your nail.
Step 2. File the nail carefully, but try to avoid the split itself or file it minimally.
Step 3: Take a tea bag and cut it so it covers the break in your nail.
Step 4: Take a clear polish and paint a thick layer over the broken nail.
Step 5: Carefully place the tea bag piece on the wet nail, using tweezers if necessary.
Step 6: Let dry, then add one or two more coats of clear polish.
Step 7: Camouflage the tea bag with the color of your choosing. Paint other nails to match.
