Nothing ruins a manicure like a weak or chipped nail

NOTHING ruins a manicure like a weak or chipped nail.

At last, those days are over because there’s an oh-so-simple trick to fix that pesky nail tear in a snap.

Here’s what you need: a tea bag, tweezers, scissors, clear nail polish, and a nail buffer.

  1. After thoroughly cleaning your hands and removing any polish from your nails, cut a small piece off of the tea bag, making sure it’s big enough to cover your nail.
  2. After you’ve gotten the size just right, apply a coat of clear nail polish, and—with nails still wet—use tweezers to apply the tea bag patch onto the brittle nail. In seconds, you’ll notice the tea bag is already barely noticeable.
  3. Next, apply a second coat of clear polish and give it a few minutes to dry.
  4. As a last step, buff the nail to smooth the surface. At this point, you shouldn’t be able to see or feel the tea bag and your nails are ready for a coat of polish.
