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.
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:
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!
