|The products I used|
|Wrap + glue (light corrected)|
After buffing down, I added a coat of NailTek I - Maintenance, my normal base coat, then started my normal painting process. You can see below what the nail looks like with just base coat, as well as with one coat of polish. With just the one coat you can clearly see the elevated area with the silk.

|One coat of (messy) polish|
|Fixed up nail (with smeared Konad again, I was in too much of a hurry!)|
|The final result, all nails together!|
The nail feels very strong now, and I am hopefully that I can keep it together while it grows out, even if I have to repeat this procedure once more. If you look closely, you can see the raised area where the silk is, but overall it is pretty difficult to see it, and I don't think you would see it if you weren't looking for it.
What do you all think? Is this the best way to repair a broken nail, or do you have a better way? I am definitely open to suggestions - this is just what I found online, as well as what the ladies at Sally Beauty suggested. I would love to here your thoughts and opinions!
I am off to the game now with my fixed up Game Day Nails. Tomorrow, I am going to try water marbling. I am really excited! :)
