my halloween challenge, #ScaryweenChallenge, is almost over and my nails have been pretty weakened by all the painting and removing the designs with polish remover. They chipped and cracked here and there and recently the thumb nail on my left hand bend over backwards and broke ….
Luckily I had already asked ORLY Germany for a sample of their nail rescue kit, so I could try it out for you and tell you my honest opinion.

recently I ripped my right thumb nail. It was ripped down into the skin so I had to do something so it could grow out.
For this kind of situations I use only 4 things. A tea filter for loose tea, nail glue for Acrylic nails, the fast help repair from p2 and my p2 nail file for soft nails..
Alternatively you can also use a normal tea bag and a clear polish, but I prefer the nail glue since it lasts longer.
For the first step I file the area were the nail ripped. I use a cotton pad soaked in nail polish remover to clean the nail and then prepare the tea filter. I cut a piece in the size to cover the ripped nail and a bit more.
Then I put the nail glue over the ripped area and put on the cut tea filter. Carefully I use my metal file to push the filter into the nail glue and keep it in place. Wait a bit and let it dry.
After the nail glue dried completely you can use the soft nail file to file down the edges of the tea filter so you have a smooth nail surface.
When you get the result you wanted you can apply the fast help repair polish.
You should be left with a nice surface to even put on a nice nail polish.
Now your ripped nail can grow out without any pain.
I hope this post was helpful. Let me know how you repair broken nails. Also comment me after you tried this :)
