A fake nail just got lost? Do you end up with a damaged nail, painful perhaps? What to do when a false nail is torn off to limit the damage? This is what I suggest you discover now. In this article, I will tell you what to do when a false nail is ripped out?
First things first: don’t panic. When you notice that one of your false nails has torn off, we advise you to make sure that your natural nail has not gone with it… If this is the case: protect your natural nail (which is probably bleeding) and go to the doctor to put on a suture. If by chance only gel nail is damaged then stop everything! You are now going to take care of your nail in question, before calling on a nail technician to remove it.
1. Filing of the broken nail
First, you will have to file with a nail file like this the edges of the nail in order to avoid snagging anything and everything with your broken nail. It is a question of smoothing the angles and standardizing the damaged false nail. Don’t use nail clippers, which are too aggressive in this type of situation.
2. Protect the surface of the nail
Then we advise you to protect the surface of the nail. For this, nothing could be simpler: apply a base coat varnish to your visible nail and the rest of the false nail. It strengthens your natural nail and prevents additional breakage. In addition, it allows you to even out the surface through an additional layer.
3. Carry out a removal in an institute
Finally, there are not 12,000 solutions in the event of a torn false nail: you must make a removal with a nail technician. For this, the practitioner will file the catalyzed gel with a nail file. Otherwise, removal is done with a manual file. Then it’s time for natural nail care, especially with a base coat version of course. You can also opt for a manicure or a semi-permanent varnish, or even a new false nail, if you wish.
However, the risk is to weaken your natural nail which undergoes a filing as well as a catalysing under UV lamp. You have understood, in the event of a torn false nail, there are only a few solutions. Take care by yourself, then make a removal in an institute.
