Review : Broadway Nails Real Life Petites glue on nails.

Monday, 13 January 2014

Available at Boots. £7.95

As much as I would like to sit here and tell that my nails are always a lovely length, perfectly manicured with a swipe of colour on them... I really cant. You see, I go through phases of having nice nails. I am an ex nail biter so for the majority of my life my nails were never long. Even with promises from my Mum and Gran that if I grew them they would treat me to some nice nail polishes  it didn't stop me.  These days my nails just go through growth spurts it seems. One month they will grow very quickly and I'll be able to do some fancy nail designs on them, the next they've all broken and don't seem to want to grow! With that in mind, there are a few occasions where I need to dabble with false ones. One big occasion being our wedding day. These are my nails of choice then and well forever. 

The broadway nails petites are the only false nails I have found that fit my nail beds perfectly. I have tiny hands, which results in tiny nails. You wont catch me purchasing standard size false nails. There are never enough nails in the pack which are small enough to cater to my needs. With these however I never have a problem. Another plus point is their length. Broadway Nails are the first & only (according to their website) false nail enhancements that are short in length. (another problem I find with standard size packs) making them look very natural and realistic when I've got them stuck on! I don't use the glue that comes with them though as I don't feel that is it that strong. Instead I use a nailene one which I purchase separately. 

The nails have tabs on the end which makes them really easy to apply. You just work out which nail fits which finger (they have numbers on the tabs which makes it easier to work out which are the pairs) Apply the glue and then place them in position, once happy, you can just snap off the tab and use a nail file to smooth the edges. These nails usually last quite well on my nails, because they aren't mega long in length they don#t really get caught on anything on a daily basis, and definitely don't ping off when I'm washing my hair! They are a product that I do repurchase on a fairly regular basis when my nails don't seem to want to grow and I'm fed up of short stubby nails! 

Have you tried these before? 

Much love.


  1. I have the same problem with my nails as I am a nail bitter myself but I have cut down tremendously. It is the same for me some months good & some bad. When I was in my preteen age I wore these like crazy since I hated my nails. I haven't worn them in years and kind of missed them so I am going to go pick up a pack since my nails are short.
