How to fix a broken nail with a teabag from Elle Beauty.
Step 1: Clip the broken nail as close to the fingertip as you can.
Step 2: Using a glass or crystal file, gently file any snags, but be sure to avoid the split itself.
Step 3: Trim a tea bag or paper coffee filter to the size of a small patch that can cover the break in the nail.
Step 4: Paint the broken nail with a generous coat of clear polish.
Step 5: While the clear polish is tacky, gently place the trimmed tea bag/coffee filter over the broken part of the nail (It may be helpful to use a tweezer to hold and apply the tea bag segment).
Step 6: Allow it to dry. Then cover the nail with one or two more coats of clear polish.
Step 7: After the clear polish has dried you can polish with the color of your choice to camouflage the tea bag.
