Place the piece of toiletpaper exactly on the tear. Make sure it covers the tear all the way to the side of your nail!

When it's dry you can use your favorite nailpolish on top! I have used one coat of OPI My Private Jet. The neater you did the toiletpaper the less you should see it after this step.

After two coats! A shiney top coat also helps to make it look even better!
