Inspect the nail: if it's broken "to the meat", with him cracked leather and the wound is bleeding – give up self-repair. Do not repair a nail in the case when it is cracked more than halfway – you just can't do it; the crack is still going on, and you will still lose the nail. In both cases, keep the nail you can only be a specialist.
If the crack on the nail is not more than 2/3 of its width, you can safely begin the repair. First remove the Shine around the edge, clean it with a soft brush and treat with disinfectant.
Take this special fabric and cut from it a small piece, glue it so that the crack was exactly in the middle of the strip. Smooth the fabric using a wooden spatula moistened with liquid varnish remover. If the crack is deep, the first patch plate, a second larger size.
Spread the fabric with liquid glue and wait until it is completely dry. Scrub the surface with a cloth, soft blade, leveling it with the nail plate. Apply to the surface of the nail oil and Polish it. In order that the crack was not visible, cover the nail with two layers of varnish. If the patch still stands out, mask it with rhinestones or perhaps decals.
If you need to remove the patch, this can be done in two ways. The first way: drop your damaged nail in a solution or liquid varnish remover for about 5-10 minutes, then remove finger and remove the patch with a wooden spatula. After removal, RUB in a nail oil. Second method: cutting the patch with a coarse nail file.
Depending on load repaired fingernail can last from two days or more. During this time, your nail will grow back in time a bit and even if you do it in the end carefully pruned, it will not be much different in length from the others.
Tape broken nail with glue "Moment" or cyanoacrylate. For nails they don't fit as well as corrode living cells.
