ONE WOMEN shared a quick and easy way to fix a broken nail – and all you need is a tea bag.
Dena, who regularly shares pictures of her impressive nails on TikTok, took to the social media site to explain what she would do if she accidentally broke one of her nails.
“I was lifting weights at the gym and I ended up breaking one of my nails, so I’ll show you how to fix it with the tea bag method,” says Dena. started.
All you need to try the hack yourself is a tea bag – which costs about 1 minute in the supermarket – some nail glue, a pair of tweezers, and a nail file.
“I start by filing the sides and then be gentle on the surface – just the broken places,” she explains.
“Then I cover those spots with some nail glue and let it dry.”
After the glue dries, she files those areas, before adding another coat of nail glue.
Use scissors to cut a rectangular section from the tea bag.
“I used tweezers to apply the wet glue on the nail and press it down with the tweezers,” she continued.
“Then what I like to do is squeeze some glue and press down on the tea bag as I go.”
When the glue was completely dry, she filed it again, until the glue was completely smooth.
To finish the process, she used some rubbing alcohol to wipe off the excess, and the nail was completely fixed.
If you don’t have a spare tea bag, you can try the same process with a toilet roll or a kitchen roll.
“I do this but with tissues,” someone commented on Dena’s video.
“Make sure it’s the double layer. Take a micro piece. Take out the first layer and cut to the required shape and glue.”
Others praised Dena for the hack, with one writing: “I love it like a little nail wrap lol.”
“Where have you been all my life… your nails are finally getting long and beautiful and you had to cut them shorter causing a few to break,” another woman added.
