    When your client has a damaged nail, the experience can be incredibly painful for him or her. You should always encourage your clients to visit the salon when they have damaged nails instead of trying to deal with the damaged nails on their own. Clients will frequently believe that they can just tear off the entire nail. The problem with this is that a nail can be entirely taken off in this process. You should tell them that the salon has a special procedure for treating damaged nails. When your client has a nail that needs repair, here are some of the following tips that you can take.

  1. Buff the Nail
  2. First, buff the client’s nail to remove any dirt or oils from the surface. This will provide you with a clean surface for applying the nail glue.

  3. Apply Nail Glue
  4. The next step is to apply nail glue on the side of the nail. You should apply nail to the side of the nail and ensure that the crack is fully covered with nail glue.

    Remember to wear gloves for chores! Detergents and cleansers are harsh on your fingernails, causing drying, spitting and peeling. Soil and gardening can also cause damage to your nails.

  5. Rip the Corner
  6. You will then rip the corner of the nail. In place of the old nail, you are going to apply a half of an acrylic nail. The acrylic nail will protect the nail from cracking any farther down the nail.

  7. Use Air Dry Glue
  8. When you are using nail glue, it is essential that you use air dry glue. If you use ordinary nail glue, then the nail may not be repaired.

  9. Apply the Acrylic Nail
  10. Next, you will apply the acrylic nail on top of the damaged part of the nail. Be sure to clip the acrylic nail so that it matches the length of the client’s other nails. You should also make sure to press down firmly on the acrylic nail for a few seconds to ensure that it is covering the crack in the nail.

  11. Buff the Nail
  12. After applying the acrylic nail over the crack, you will then buff the nail. Buff the nail to apply some extra pressure to the acrylic nail on top of the crack.

  13. Use a Shine Buffer
  14. The last step is to use a shine buffer. Use a shine buffer to make the nail look healthy.

    Following these tips you may learn in nail school, you will be able to repair your client’s damaged nail in no time. You will be able to help your client achieve the perfect set of nails and prevent damage in the future on his or her nails.
