Nail Break? No Problem!

Well, I guess an awesome weekend leads to a not so awesome nail break!!  I know, it's so tragic.


This was actually one of those painfully high breaks, so cutting it down really wasn't a comfortable option.  So I thought I'd try Orly Nail Rescue.  I snagged mine from Sally Beauty for $7.99.


You start by painting the affected area with the nail glue.  I really like this nail glue actually.  It goes on neatly and easily, without immediately turning into that white mess.


Next, dip your nail into the powder pot.  It will come out looking like this ...


Use a paper towel to remove the excess powder, and then use the buffing file provided to smooth out the nail.  And then .....


No more troubles!  A perfectly strong nail!!  The next time you break a nail, keep Orly Nail Rescue in mind before you cut them down!!

  1. Love it (not that you broke a nail, but that you did something about it and solved the problem) and it really looks great! I'm DEFINITELY going to use this next time... It's been over a month and my stupid middle finger on my right hand is STILL shorter (despite filing the others down multiple times) so.. I just tonight filed the others down a lot more. I could have saved myself so much trouble! Thanks for this review :o)

  2. Luckily I don't have a lot of breaks nowadays anymore *knocks on wood*, but I always went for the silk wraps/teabag method. Those work fine too, but this looks SO much handier! If I ever get more breaks or chips again, I'll know what I'll try next. Thanks for showing :)

  3. My nails break very often =/ Tell me one thing, this product lasts in your nails? I already tried other systems with glue + something to put on top of it and it breaks after little time!
    Thank you for the review =)

  6. Ana, it wears like iron, and I've never had one break again after I mended it. It's actually stronger than your own nail. :)

  18. Just cut four of my nails yesterday. They like to shed their top layer so they become ridiculously thin; I think that might have been fixable with that nail rescue stuff as well :/ I don't know where I can get this amazing product, though...

    1. Try using this lotion called Mane 'n Tail Hoofmaker Hand & Nail Therapy. My nails used to be thin and would break really easily...I used that stuff daily and sometimes more than once a day and it helped to strengthen my nails. You can find it at Walmart or just about any pharmacy...or on Amazon and it is relatively inexpensive. Good luck.

  19. This only lasts a day or two on me before my nail breaks again. I have found that silk wraps work better for me.

    1. Oh my gosh! I've been wearing it since Saturday and it's survived the daily routine, painting my kitchen, and four polish changes! I haven't had any issues with it at all!
