How to fix a broken nail

Hey guys, today I will keep it short and if possible include more details later as I am running late due to my exams. But I am really excited to share the latest hack discovered by me to a get a broken nail fixed in seconds!

So, all of us (ladies) get really upset when our long pretty nails wear out and get broken. The pain is inevitable. But now no more. When I did a pretty nail art and my middle finger nail broke I was really upset. And while going through the grief I suddenly thought of using this trick.

Here it is:

This trick mainly works if your broken part of the nail is even a bit stuck with the later part attached to the skin, or you can also use it with a fully broken nail. The former would last longer to be true.

Things you need:

1) A Fevi kwik!

Yes! You are reading it right! A Fevi kwik! Get your nail fixed with this strong adhesive.

Before you get scared, let me inform you all that it’s absolurely non-poisonous and doesn’t come out once dry.  Feviquick or cyanoacrylate glue is not toxic. It just forms a solid layer on which it is applied and can be scarred off. Cyanoacrylate is used in the cosmetology/beauty industry as a “nail glue” for some artificial nail enhancements such as nail tips and nail wraps. But contact with eyes should be strictly avoided. In case of accidental contact, consult ophthalmologist. (Source: Wikipedia)

What you have to do is, open the cap, press out a little bit of the adhesive from the nozzle and apply it directly from it to the upper part of the broken nail attached to the skin. DO NOT APPLY IT TO THE SKIN. I repeat: Not on the skin but on the upper part of the leftover attached nail.

After that instantly put a bit of the adhesive in the same way (directly) to the lower part of the unattached broken nail and stick it onto the right place. Place it perfectly onto its broken hinges like a jigsaw puzzle. Press it for some seconds and it will dry up.

There you go with a strong & long nail once again!

Here’s my broken nail which you won’t be able to recognise; fixed with feviquick! The middle finger one!

Don’t use your hands or fingers in any part of this work as they will get stuck badly. It’s only the nails involved in this which is an insensitive part of our body and nothing else. The adhesive will be transferred directly from the tube to the nail.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

If you want to be safer while doing this, you can apply Vaseline or any other petroleum jelly over the skin surrounding your nails and on your fingers involved. It will insulate the skin and won’t let the adhesive affect it in case of any mistaken application.

FOR ADDITIONAL INFO:

If your fingers get stuck together with Fevikwik

This may happen if you aren’t too careful, but there’s no need to panic. The first thing to remember is not to immediately force open your fingers as it could cause more damage than good. Instead, dip them in either warm or cold water and slowly try to pry them open after about 5 or 10 minutes. Your fingers might have residue strongly stuck to them once they are separated, but you need not worry. This will fall off in a day’s time or so.

If the super glue falls on your skin

Should Fevikwik fall on your skin, the first thing you do is run water over that area of your skin. The adhesive will not get washed off, but will harden after a while. You can peel off this hardened residue within a day. Fevikwik is a rubber adhesive and will not burn your skin nor will it leave a stain once the residue is peeled off.

If Fevikwik falls on expensive material/ cloth

The important thing to remember in this case is not to bend or fold the hardened portion of the cloth. Put some nail polish remover in a container or bowl and dip the affected part of the cloth in the solvent for about an hour or two. If the amount of adhesive is more or if the stains are older, the cloth will need more soaking time. However, make sure the solvent does not affect the color of the material.

In addition to this, you can also remove this adhesive from other surfaces like car body, spectacle glasses, mobile or laptop screens etc. all you need to do is take a dip a swab of cotton in nail polish remover and place it over the stain for about 5-10 minutes. Then clean off the adhesive by rubbing it off gently. However, if you are using it on painted surfaces, ensure you do not remove the paint in the process.

I am sorry I don’t have any picture of this process right now but whenever I use this trick again I will modify this post and let you all know about it.

For better results, after fixing the nail apply 2-3 coats of nail polish or nail enamel (transparent top coat) over the nail. You can also put 2 coats of nail enamel at the downward or lower portion of the nail to keep it stronger. It will also help to last your nail for long by protecting it from water and soapy materials.

Do tell me if this hack worked for you!
