Nothing takes you from bad-case scenario to omigod-help-case scenario faster than a brittle nail that keeps on breaking. (Everyone knows that situation is only funny in meme form . . . or just about any other sequence of events that does not involve you, right now, in real life.) Not only is a split nail painful, but the fact that it then often snags on just about everything you come in contact with also makes it extremely cumbersome.
If the damage is already done, we're here to help. That's why we reached out to celebrity manicurist and KISS brand ambassador Gina Edwards to find out what TF to do when you break a nail — plus exactly how to keep your tips in top shape moving forward so you never have to suffer through another traumatic ordeal again. Until then, temporary relief is ahead. Sending our thoughts and prayers.
