Coffee Filter Nail Repair Without Glue - How to Fix Nails at Home

Coffee Filter Nail Repair Hack for Dip Nails
Coffee Filter Nail Bandage to the rescue! A broken nail doesn't mean you have to clip them all short and wait months for them to grow out evenly. With a simple coffee filter or tea bag, you can bandage your nail and make it good as new. No glue needed. No one will ever know! 
PRO TIP:

Make sure you thoroughly prep nails to ensure adhesion & long-lasting wear! Push back cuticles, create a rough texture on the nail plate by filing, and sanitize thoroughly.

You will need the following:

A coffee filter & some tweezers for expert placement!

Step 1
  • Apply Step 1 Bond to the entire nail.
Step 2
  • Line your nail up with the edge of the coffee filter. Using a pen, mark the width of your nail then carefully clip that marked piece of coffee filter.
  • Using tweezers, place the coffee filter cut out against the nail to size. Trim as needed.
Step 3
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base over the broken part of the nail.
Step 4
  • Using your tweezers, pick up your coffee filter cut out and gently place it over the broken area.
Step 5
  • Apply a coat of Step 2 Base over the entire nail and immediately dip finger into Base & Finish.

PRO TIP: Avoid getting the product onto cuticles, powder will pick up wherever Base is applied.

Step 6
  • Repeat for more coverage.
  • We recommend applying a final dip layer of Base & Finish to seal and protect your dip blend.

PRO TIP: Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.

Step 7
  • Complete manicure as usual.

PRO TIP: Don't apply more than 2 coats of Sealer as this will prevent even drying & may result in a gummy mani.

Finish!
  • Fixing & protecting your mani has never been easier. With common household items, you can skip the salon and fix your mani on your time!
