Broadway Nails Review

I was at the drugstore looking at polish and normally go right past the fake nails.  However, these caught my eye!  At first, I was just going to take a pic and try to re-create it myself, but I figured, what the heck, I'll buy them.  They looked super cute.

These are Broadway Nails Fashion Diva Nail Kit in Harajuku Style.  They are a mismatch plaid in pink, orange and green neon!  How cool!  These are the "short" length which turns out is just about the same length as my own nails.  They have the little tabs for application.  I didn't use the glue that came with them, but it does come with a pink tinted glue.  I have to say, I love the look and I easily found nails that fit, which is the most important part.  I left them on for 5 days.  None of them were falling off, but the edges had started to come loose by the end.  Not sure if this is due to improper initial application, or if the nails were starting to go.  I haven't put on fake nails in years, and I've never done so on a consistent basis, so it's possible this was a user error.  They did show tip wear by the end, but none of them had chipped horribly and you couldn't tell unless you had my nail up to your eyes anyway.  I got them off by just soaking cotton in Acetone and placing it on the nail.  After a few minutes, the fake nail puffed up and slid right off.  (This is my normal process for taking off nail polish except I usually just use remover and not straight Acetone).  Overall, I was very pleased with these nails and would definitely get them again.  They come in various designs and lengths.  This would be a great alternative for a quick mani for a special occasion.


[These nails were purchased with my own money for my own personal use.]

@lacquer - thanks! it was just too tempting, hehe

@katrina - thank you :) they are very easy, but you'll probably need the medium length

@jan - thank you!!

@emily - I thought so too! that was part of the reason I always stayed away because I thought they'd look glaringly fake. I had several people ask me how I painted it and if it was a sticker, hehe
