So I split my ring finger nail. :( It was too far down to simply file it, so I pulled out my nail bandages. These are tiny clear sticky ovals that you put on your nail tear. The package says it lasts for days, even under water, which is not true in my experience. I found they last about one day. They are great for preventing that tear from ripping off and creating a jagged nail or, even worse, an exposed nail bed.
If you see the bumps on my ring finger nail, that’s the clear bandage underneath my nail polish.
