Anyway, back to the issue at hand. A chipped nail. Any nail art lover's worst nightmare. To some people it's just a broken nail, but for us it's also a broken heart, broken spirit, and lots of tears. When I was younger, I used to see how my aunt used to cry whenever she broke one of her nails. And all I thought (I was a 6 y/o kid) was "wow.. all that crying for a nail?" it just baffled me. And nowadays I completely understand what my aunt used to feel.
So, without more back-stories, here's what I did to fix my nail using a very budget-proof method.
First I went and bought the Essence studio nails fix it! nail glue. It only cost me around €2,29 ($3.15) -price might be different in different countries/stores-. And all I needed other than that were my files, and a tiny piece of Kleenex (paper tissue). The nice thing about this glue is that it comes with a brush for easy application.

|Base coat on|
|Two layers of Catrice Ultimate Nudes 07 Cotton Candy At Eiffel Tower|
|A front look to show the nail surface|
|Same nail prepped for nail art (coming up later this week)|
I hope this was helpful for those who might need an affordable solution for a broken nail.
Until next time!
