HOW TO FIX A BROKEN NAIL WITH IBD FILLER POWDER (+ SUPERGLUE!)

SO, SOMETIMES I don't always practice what I preach, and this week I clean forgot to use my cuticle oil for 1 or 2 days. AND I left the house with bare, naked nails. A big no, no with nails as long as mine! 

This Is Why I Love IBD Nail Filler Powder

When I forget to use my cuticle oil and don't bother to paint my nails (I always coat my nails in layers of strengthener, harder or polish to protect them) I always break a nail. And this week I did just that! But I managed to save it with IBD's amazing Nail Filler Powder. I had run out of IBD 5 Second Brush-On Gel Resin, which you use alongside the powder, so used superglue instead. Which, by the way, worked really well! If you have broken your nail and don't want to file ALL your nails down, then read on!

INSTRUCTIONS


1. Remove polish from the cracked nail

2. Gently buff the area with a sanding block taking care not to put too much pressure on the broken side

3. Put 1-2 drops of glue on the crack and around the area
4. Before the glue dries tap the nail filler powder over entire area you have glued
5. Brush off excess powder + 
buff lightly to smooth out
Repeat this step until your nail feels completely secure + stable. With this break, I had to repeat 3 times. But 2 will work with a smaller crack 

GOOD AS NEW!
