Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure

For fellow bloggers, do you ever take a batch of photos, only to start editing them and find that they kind of... well, suck? Every now and then I find myself in that situation. Sometimes I re-do everything and sometimes I don't. This post is an example of the latter. Oh well. The content is pretty good though, as I have a few really fun designs of Broadway Nails imPress Press-on Manicure. Read on!

I feel like I have reviewed these so many times, but in actuality it was only once (here.) So, the nails come housed in cute little nail polish bottle shaped packages, which will never not impress me (ha, impress, happy accident!) Inside you get 24 nails in 12 sizes. Now, sizing is obviously going to differ from person to person, but I have to say, these are pretty good for me. I do find some fingers just don't fit any size nail perfectly and the closest size is either too big or too small or both at the same time- a good fit at the cuticle but too wide at the other end-but for the most part, I find these work well for my short, but average width nails. That said, I do find some of the nails to be too long once on, but these are easily clipped with nail clippers and file easily too.

Application is as simple as prepping clean nails with the included Prep Pad (it's just an alcohol wipe) and filing nails to a desired shape. I don't know why but the nail that fits my thumb is always short on me, so I have to remember to trim my thumbnails or I get overhang... actually, it would be under-hang wouldn't. Anyway, once nails are prepped, and you've laid out the correct sizes, you simply pull the tab off of the glue and stick 'em on. They have to cure for about an hour- try not to get your hands wet- but other than that you're good to go!

I was sent a few designs from Influenster and had a few from Broadway PR, so I figured now was the perfect time to show some of the designs currently available. I love that they have designs to fit pretty much every style, including solid colours, really decorative nail art styles, and of course classic French. I opted to wear Holla first, which has a nude base with a black fishnet background and a floral and butterfly motif. I actually thought these were all floral as I didn't notice the butterflies until I had these on. I could do without them, but the design is still cute and is a little bit more understated.

Overall, I quite like these. I like my own natural nails too, so I can't see myself being a frequent user, but for nights out, or a special event or times when I'm just too busy to actually do my nails, I would reach for these. What you you think of them? Have you tried them or would you?
