Take My Nails to Broadway

MyOwnJudgeChanging colors are what brought me to the Broadway Nails brand, and after one experience is a success, it is always wise to check out what else the company has to offer you and let the friendship develop. (p.s. speaking of friendship – if you check out the brand on Facebook and hit ‘Like’ – or Twitter, and they’ll give you a coupon!)

A fresh take on the french tip, I chose a silver accented design with rhinestones thrown in for good measure (from the divine collection – this one is called ‘dreamy’). A perfect prelude for a holiday party.

My first experience with the color changing nails had me try on both the adult version, and the one marketed more towards younger consumers. The changing tip design was for adults, whereas the polka dots was aimed more to the tween crowd (though I love my fair share of polka dots). The latter set was a bit narrower for the nails, and though cute, didn’t look seamless by the end of the application (the first – color changing tips – was great in fit). The short length I chose this time proved no problem in the width or length of my nails. Keep in mind though, there are folks with longer nails who might have trouble with this size and may need to opt for a longer design.

MyOwnJudgePretty simple. Check out the site for more application tips and tricks.
MyOwnJudgeA complaint I had when trying these the first time was the packaging for the glue ended up as a mess while attempting to open it. I either missed the memo then, or it was fixed by now, because it had a simple and easy twist off perforation at the time. This saved mucho time, and maintained the packaging.MyOwnJudgeThe design is super cute without being too sweet. Great for work, with just enough attitude for the holiday party and beyond.MyOwnJudgeThe designs came out great. The most common question? I didn’t have that many bubbles under the nails either. I think the cream color of the nail has some kind of frosting from the inside to prevent it from looking so ghastly – or I’m just babbling :).MyOwnJudgeThe nails were longer than I have ever grown my own to be, so it was a fun time pretending these were what I had. Classmates and coworkers seemed to have been convinced I had acrylic nails done, and who was I to correct them?

When was the last time you rocked faux nails?

Broadway Nails Change Color

Broadway NailsWhen you get a spare minute or two to wander the aisles of your drugstore (or you do it on purpose on a regular basis – I won’t judge!), you might notice there are some fancy things going on in the health and beauty aisles.

My favorite change has become the new advances of press on/glue on nails. For less than $10 you have an instant manicure, which, even at your clumsiest, will last you at the least two days. I’ve had $20 manis that didn’t make that cut!

The excitement comes from the variety of shapes and sizes in these nails (I never found it necessary to scratch my brain through my ear!), most importantly with much more short length options. The designs are getting funkier, brighter, and more original. The best one yet? Broadway Nails Fashion Diva Color changing! Fun in the sun and all business inside.

Apart from the color and the length, the other difference with these is that the glue that comes with the nails has been changed. The pink glue is formulated to hold the nails longer and with less chances of air bubbles, but that’s not all. The glue no longer comes with different tips where you have to flip the tip back and forth to open the glue. This glue is ready to go as soon as you open it up.

The only problem I have with the glue is that the packaging on it is funky. Once you peel it back, you either have to take it off completely, or deal with a sloppy looking outside. This is a small gripe, but I’m just reporting my findings.

I had a couple of air bubbles, but nothing to complain about. The few that I had were hardly noticeable, unless undergoing rigorous inspection.

I really like that there is a sliver of silver below the french tip, and that the shape is manageable and not obnoxious.

As you start entering sunlight, it progresses to a cute party!

These nails lasted a little over five days on my nails. On the fifth day a couple of nails fell off, but I just put some more glue on and the overall look stayed on for a week.

As far as removal is concerned, I usually just take a long shower with fake nails. When I decide to have press on/glue on nails, I also semi agree to take speedy showers. Too much water ends up soaking the nails and causes them to flip off. These aren’t permanent after all. When I’m ready to take them off I just take that long shower and by the end most of them fly off on their own. DO NOT pull the nails off if you get tired of them. Not a fan of lengthy showers? Cool. Soak ’em. Ripping them off ruins your nails (ever notice how it could peel the whole stinking top layer of the nail off?).

Interested? Take a peek at the website. They are on the up and up with the live swatching of all the designs, including changing your skin tone. The most impressive part? You can enter the measurements of your middle finger (in mm) and they will tell you which products work with your nail size.
