If lifting can be rectified, file over the whole nail with a medium grit file until there is no ridge between the acrylic and the nail plate.

Remove all dust with a nail brush.
Apply a coat of nail dehydrator.
Apply a coat of primer.
Apply a small bead of acrylic on the gap to be infilled, holding finger downwards.
