Shout out to Maria for letting me use her photo. You can check out her blog and the original article here.
So basically her advice is to super glue a piece of tea bag over the tear on nail. When I first saw the post I was so excited. I can’t tell you how many times I have had a nail tear and I’ve painfully had to watch it grow out knowing I would have to trim it. About a month after I first read this article I got a chance to test it out. Applying the tea bag was was pretty easy and it did do it’s job at first but later in the day I ran into problems. I would either pull the teabag off or it would split on the nail tear after a few days. I would end up having to remove and reapply the tea bag everyday or every other day and I still had to eventually cut my nail. The tea bag wasn’t the miracle permeant fix I’d hoped for but I was able to hold off on cutting my nail a few extra days. You guys try it out and tell me your results!
*Also I must note that my nail tear was longer than the one in Marie’s photo. That may reduce the effectiveness of the tea bag.
