There are few things more irritating than a broken nail. But now, there is an answer. An answer that doesn't involve biting, pulling or clipping the offending nail. Broken nails are sometimes an unavoidable thing so follow these steps for a DIY fix that will save you a trip to the salon.

Step 2: Apply Nail Glue

Step 3: Apply The Paper Cut Out
