Today’s Marvelous Tips Mondays is all about fixing a torn nail. YEEEOUCH!!!
This past week I tore not one but two fingernails into the nail bed.
I had a dilemma of choosing whether to cut the nails off as close to the tears as possible or just let it hang there at the midpoint and do my best not to snag it on anything. That hurts!
First, I tried nail stickers thinking that would hold the nail together.
But that only lasted literally 10 minutes. It quickly tore as I snagged my nail again. OUCH! Later that day I spotted glue on fake nails at Dollar General. I bought some nail glue and the cute fake nails. Put a drop of glue on my nail and a drop on the fake nail. Held it on for several seconds(maybe 15-20) and then did this for my other torn nail on my other hand. And Viola!
Ok, I do feel a little goofy wearing just one of these per hand so I’m planning on painting my other nails red. The glue on nail reminds me of Minnie Mouse for some reason so I thought the others in red might be cute. 🙂 So far they have stayed on for 3 days and haven’t popped off. I’m hoping they last until the unlying nails grow past the nail bed.
Do you have any remedies for torn nails or are you super tough and just cut them down? Yeeeouch!
