IT’S SAFE to say that breaking a nail is not nice.

You’ve spent ages growing your nails and they look fabulous, so when your nail snaps and breaks, it’s anything but ideal.

Well, now there’s a simple solution for fixing a breaking nail and it’s left us very impressed.

Maria, known as ‘sonailicious’ on TikTok has shared her simple hack for fixing a broken nail and it couldn’t be easier.

And don’t worry, you won’t need to fork out for any expensive lotions or varnishes to fix it.

All you need is something that you probably have in your kitchen cupboard already.

Maria uploaded her tip to TikTok with the caption ‘Strange but it works’.

This simple hack involves using a tea bag (yes, you heard that correctly), to fix a broken nail.

The body part you first wash in the shower says a lot about you –what's yours?

With Maria’s method, all you need to do is get a tea bag and cut a small triangle from the bag.

Then apply glue to the break on the nail.

Following this, stick down the tea bag triangle you have cut to seal the break.

Repeat the process once more and if the tea bag triangle is sticking out over the nail, wrap it around the edge to keep it neat. 

Once it’s dry, paint over your nail with some varnish to make it smooth.

And it’s as simple as that! 


Maria explained: “if you don't have nail glue, simply use your usual nail strengthener or any base coat to seal the nail break.

“It works really well on small breaks… as soon as you notice a little hanger, seal it right away and it will save the nail!

“It's so simple and so effective. Probably one of the best beauty hacks I've ever learned.” 

You won’t have to worry about having a gorgeous set of long nails and then one ugly short one with this simple trick. 

Maria’s video has clearly impressed numerous people as it has racked up a whopping 2.2million views.

It has 163.7k likes, 1,600 comments and 1,023 shares. 

One person said: “Yes! Normalise fixing broken nails! I use self adhesive silk wraps but this method is more accessible!” 

Another added: “This is what I do works so well.” 

A third commented: “Soooooo trying this.”
