Default Restringing nylon - first time

I have never restrung a nylon string guitar before. I just bought my first classical guitar and have broken a string already. Maybe its my nails that I use for steel string...whatever...Does anyone have a video or can you recommend a good source for the correct way to do "tie on" strings for the least slippage.
