If you, like me, enjoy long nails, you know how bothersome it can be when one gets a bit of a crack in it. And how painful it is when it finally breaks apart! Especially if it cracks low along the skin. This trick will help your nail stay together as long as it’s patched up, or if you just want it to grow out long enough to clip it without hurting. I will say it does make a weird texture, even with polish over it, but it could just be the tissue I use.
You can also use tea bags, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. I’m not sure exactly how long they can withstand but mine last until I remove the polish and do it over again. I’ve found this incredibly helpful in maintaining long nails and I hope you will too.
