So I have a first world problem, I have acrylic nails on but the one on my thumb just fell off and tomorrow's my first day of school so I don't want to have a whole nail missing until I can go get it fixed. I was wondering, is it okay to just glue it back on with super glue? What If I apply on clear nail polish first so it doesn't attach to my actual nail & it's safer?
After a bit of quick googling it can be done yes. Superglue and nail glue are both cyanoacrylate but bare in mind , the concentration is VERY different , the large bonding area between your acrylic nail and even if you apply on clear nail polish it's not guaranteed it'll come off without a fight. So... maybe just get it fixed. Or wear mittens.
Generally speaking super glue is toxic, so I wouldn't. Not only that but it could really mess up the look of your natural nail and could be a PITA to get off. I'm sure some cosmetology store has special glue made to use on nails.
