How To Fix a Cracked Screen with Nail Polish

Do you have this experience: accidentally dropped your phone to the ground, picked it up, and found that the screen is cracked? Maybe you have dropped your phone on the ground many times before, but the phone is unscathed, but this time, your phone screen is finally abandoned.

If the cracks are small, they can be prevented from spreading by using a substance called cyanoacrylate. Cyanoacrylate is a common household product and can be found in superglue and nail polish.

Should you choose a nail polish? First, choose a clean color. Your phone has a tiny stripe on the screen that may look cute, but it must be annoying. The next step is to wipe the dust off the surface of the phone, and then use a toothpick to apply a small amount of nail polish on the cracks.

Tilt your phone back and forth so that the nail polish penetrates the cracks, then wipe off the excess nail polish before the nail polish is completely dry. Let the nail polish that seeped into the cracks dry for at least 10 minutes before using the phone again. If you do it correctly, you should have a repaired unobtrusive crack. Its seal helps prevent water and dust from entering the screen. But it’s best to keep your phone away from damp places because you can’t rely entirely on a drop of dry nail polish.

Can Nail Polish Fix a Shattered Screen?

Unfortunately, nail polish cannot repair a broken screen. Basically, it can only repair a small crack or prevent the crack from spreading. If you pick up the phone and find that the original screen becomes a spider web, what you should do is pick up a large piece of scotch tape, carefully attach it to the original screen, and then send the phone to a repair shop.

You can also try to replace the broken screen yourself, as screen replacement kits are readily available. However, if you are a clumsy person, or this is your first attempt to change the screen of a mobile phone, and it is a relatively new and expensive mobile phone, then you better leave the screen replacement to a professional.

If you mess up the screen replacement, you may damage the phone to the point where it cannot be repaired, so if you want to learn to fix the phone yourself, you can practice it on the old phone first. However, you should be careful when do this by yourself at home. The worst thing is that you put the nail polish on your T-shirt.
