How to Fix Broken Nails with Orly Nail Rescue

A broken nail can break a million hearts and no amount of ice cream can make it better. Months of growth and care can all disappear in a second. There’s no one way to prevent breakage entirely, Orly Nail Rescue can help fix nails quickly. Manicured and Marvelous walks you through the process.

RoselynnOrly Nail Rescue saved me weeks of having nubs and more importantly allowed time for my natural nails to grow out. I’m pretty much doing my nails more than once a day to say the least. Even with that much heavy use of acetone, I was able to keep my nail repair intact for at least two weeks. Let me show you how quick and easy it is, however, please note in these photos my nail is not broken and no nails were harmed in the making of this tutorial!

  • Step 1:

    Start off by cleaning off your nails completely with acetone. Don't let any polish remain but be extra careful around the broken nail. Take the brush-on nail glue and brush on some glue over the crack line. For the sake of this tutorial, I have drawn a black line across my nail as if it were a break line.

  • Step 2:

    Dip your nail into the Nail Repair Powder; let it sit for a few seconds. You want the glue to soak up the powder but don’t let the powder clump.

  • Step 3:

    Now the last bit of this kit is the nail buffer. You’re going to want to buff and smooth the powder until it’s a nice flat smooth surface along your nail. This can take a few minutes to get to, but be patient. The closer the powder blends with your nail, the more natural it will look once your nail is painted over.

    That’s all there is to it! It’s a really simple procedure and if you don’t take acetone to your nails everyday like me, this will likely last you at least a month. Please be aware that this kit is intended for nails still hanging on and not for breaks that have completely broken off. Your natural nail will still grow out as normal. Best of luck!  -Roselynn Mercedes, of Manicured and Marvelous
