Broke A Nail

I am sure this had happened to you. One nail breaks and you have to file it down to a little nubbin. And then you have to worry about the other nails: do they have to go, too? What did THEY do to deserve THIS?! After my index nail broke this week I decided, no! No, I will not file them all down. Instead, I will put a band-aid on it until it gets better.

There there, you'll be back to your old self soon, little guy.

I started with a base of Zoya Wednesday, a dusty turquoise. This is a hard color to photograph as it likes to turn my hands into lobster colored claws. This is the best true-to-color shot I could get.

I painted a little band-aid on my index finger using acrylic paints, then topcoated with Seche Vite. Now it is time to take my vitamins and get that nail to grow out!

  1. I hate it when that happens! I always wind up chopping them all off, or taking the rest down halfway to try and meet in the middle. Your fix is a lot more fun. :)

    1. Yeah, I will probably shorten them to even them up in a few days. OCD will kick in then, gotta have the same length! LOL

  8. This is so awesome. I have actually worn a real band-aid on my broker nail finger before to avoid cutting all my other nails.

  9. Oh! Awesome Band Aid you've made. I hate going around being worried about breaking another nail. I usually cut the whole bunch down when it happens.

  11. Oh dear, thats no good! The band-aid is a nice little touch though! I have a BAD rip in my thumb nail deep enough to where it stings. I told it NO! I'm not cutting you down! So I doused it in nail glue. It's holding up pretty good so far.
