I love having natural long nails, but they are really difficult to manage and tend to break quite often. While watching a nail artist on youtube, I came to know about nail glues and after searching Nykaa I came across this Orly Brush-On Glue. I was not too sure whether this product would work as shown on the channel or not, but this was the only thing I was able to find and so I bought this.
Price: INR 470 for 5 gm of product (BUY HERE)
Orly Brush-on Nail Glue sticks to the nail tips. A unique formula and easy application make repair long-lasting and almost invisible.
- Fix cracked, split or broken nails.
- Long lasting repair.
- The repair appears almost invisible.
Orly Brush-On Glue comes in a little white plastic bottle which kind of looks like a fabric glue to me. The cap has an attached brush to it, like a regular nail polish which helps to apply the product (glue) on the cracked nail.
My Experience with Orly Brush-On Glue:
I bought this nail glue when one of my nails cracked from the very base. I have not kept my nails short for almost 3 years and I didn’t want to cut all of them short, so I ordered this. The product took around 2 days to get delivered and by that time I tried keeping my cracked nail secure with nail stickers.
I really wanted this thing to work and initially, it did work well. The product is easy to apply. Like a regular nail polish, this too has a brush and all you need to do is swipe on the glue on the desired area and wait for it to dry. I did the same, in fact, to be extra secure I layered the product twice. I even applied a thick layer of nail polish to hide everything and make the crack extra secure.
My nail was looking good on the first day and it almost felt that it was never broken. As I saw on the youtube channel, I wanted to glue my cracked nail till a point it reaches slightly above the base (which was expected to take at least 2 weeks). But this did not happen. On the second day, I started seeing the crack from my thick nail polish layer and by the end of the day, the nail was cracked again. I removed everything and repeated the whole procedure again, and it worked well again for a day.
After trying this for a couple of times, I finally decided to let my nail go.
I don’t have too much to say about this product as it is just a nail glue which is meant to be your lifesaver in case of a nail break. I don’t think that it exactly does what it says, but it can save your nail for a special occasion (just for a day or maybe two if you decide to reapply)
Pros of Orly Brush-On Glue:
- Decently priced
- Can fix a cracked nail for a day (can be used if you have a special event coming up)
- Easy to use
Cons of Orly Brush-On Glue:
- Does not work for more than a day and it is certainly not a long lasting repair
- Not so easy to find
