Emergency Nail Repair

So yesterday, I accidently managed to slam my nail into a closing door and consequently ripped my whole in half. You know the absolute panic you get when you rip a nail at the edge about half way down? Hurt so bad.

But never fear, there is a quick and simple tip that will keep your nail safe from ripping any further!

And that's all you need. Simply rip a bit of tea bag paper off and place it over the offending snag in your nail and then coat it in a clear or nail strengthening nail polish. So, it looks and feels a bit weird but with a bit of gentle buffing and a coat of colour, no ones any the wiser. I also much prefer doing this than wrapping a plaster awkwardly round my finger just for it to fall off 5 minutes later.

So yes, sorry for the picture of my poor manky thumb but it was a handy tip that I thought would be worth sharing with all of you.
Hope  it's of some use


  1. Awesome tip! My mother recently cut her finger - and nail - almost in half, I will be sure to tell her about this!

    1. Thanks for the hint! I had no idea it was even on. I'll turn it off :)
