I use Kiss nails as my replacement for a broken nail. I use Glue Dot brand glue dots (the "red box" -- which is their strongest strength) instead of the glue that comes in the kit. This allows me to remove the nail (ala a Riconails) in between practices/etc. Plus you don't get nail damage due to glue.
