Have you constantly looked after you nails, been careful to not break any, look after them more than you look after anything else and the one day WHAM, it breaks !

Not more frustrating, but what if i told you this broken nail can easily be mended?

We are not talking about super glue or nail glue,  this can make the nail more sensitive, burn your skin and in the end make it worse. What if shellac or Gel polishes can actually repair your broken nail ?
