How To Fix A Broken Nail…. With A Tea Bag?

Sep 10, 2015 by Sarah (Day Styles)

It never fails, as soon as you grow your nails nice and long and strong, you catch it the wrong way on a cabinet drawer and one of your nails breaks. This is one of the most annoying things in the world, especially when it’s far enough down to actually be painful. Instead of filing down the rest of your nails to match the broken one, what if there were a way you could just fix the broken nail?

Guess what? I have a solution. A tea bag. No, I am not joking. A tea bag is a thin and fibrous paper so when it’s applied to the nail correctly, it repairs and strengthens the nail without adding any bulk. It’s actually remarkably simple and once you know how you will never go back to filing down your beautiful long nails ever again. Here’s what you will need for this new nail-repairing hack:

  • A paper tea bag (it’s been said that Tazo tea bags are the best for nail repairs).
  • A really good base coat.
  • Scissors.
  • A fine-grit nail file.
  • The color polish of your choice.
  • An amazing top coat.
