Split nail - any chance of repair?

I am going out with DH on our own a few times in the next week and as I want to make a bit of an effort I was going to gel polish my nails this weekend. Now my buggering nail had broken halfway down the nail and it hurts.

Is there any way of repairing before polishing? I'm sure I read a tip on here recently but I can't find it now.

Teabag it.

Yep, that works. I've also used a combo of tissue (a single ply) and clear polish when desperate!

Thank you! Knew it was something completely randomsmile. Will add nail glue to my list for town

You don't need nail glue for the teabagging, apply a bit bag over the wet uncured base cote then continue as normal. Single ply loo roll also works

Superglue and tissue paper.
