Dear diary July 25: Oh no I broke a nail!

Dear diary,

I know it's no big deal.  It's just a nail.  It's not like my auto insurance went up.  Still, I refuse to let this take me down.  No, I'm going to...I'm going to

Ok, so it wasn't so much a break as a crack or a split.  Nonetheless, repairwork is necessary unless I want to <choke> cut it off and file it down.

First,  glue the split nail back together and wait for it to dry.

After the glue dries,  smooth the surface with a bit of light buffing.

Time to cut a piece of silk wrap and glue it to the area.

Now, carefully apply a thin coat of clear gel, cure and remove the sticky residue with alcohol

Repeat the process to make a stronger bond and harder nail.
Then buff the nail to smooth the surface and file.

Shiny and good as new. 

How about a splash of polish

Nail rescued, problem solved.  I feel much better now.
Ciao for now.
