I don't know how many of you have longish nails, but I mostly do because they keep growing! I keep them shaped and buff them sometimes.

What I would do is cut all my nails to about the same length as the broken one. Buff it so it won't like it was chipped and use a nail strengthening polish. Then let your nails grow out. At least you could wear press on nails until your real nails grow out to what you want.
