Today I broke my nail. I know, I know. It sounds whiny, but it prompted me wonder to myself about what you all do when a nail breaks. Usually I’ll file it smooth and use something like Essie’s “Grow Faster” to speed up the growing time on that nail. Then I just continue painting them until I can file them out all the same length. Sometimes if I need to go somewhere fancy I’ll get a soft gel extension on the broken nail. Followers, what products and treatments do you use that seem to help?

- chelshock answered: to help nail growth, apply cuticle oil daily at the nail matrix. treatments only work where the nail grows from, not the whole nail plate!
- babiluvmuffinxx answered: Just file and reshape it, hope it grows fast lol If a bunch of them break around the same time, then I just cut them all down *tear*
