I don’t admit it often but this time I will step up and say yes I’m a diva at times! I love to have my hair fixed just right, have beautiful nails and awesome make-up but since becoming a mom I’ve found I don’t have the time or money I used to on my personal self. I do however like to take time to do the things I can do myself that cost lets than going out and having it done “professionally”. One of my absolute favorite “mommy treats” is going out and getting a manicure with acrylic nails but finding the time is almost impossible so I’ve turned to doing them myself and with the help of Broadway Nails it’s a perfect manicure every time, in less time and less money!
About Broadway Nails (Taken From Website):
Broadway Nails is the second largest brand in the artificial category, behind its sister brand Kiss (www.kissusa.com).

Capitalizing on this success, Kiss Products became the first company to bring quality, professional nail care directly to the consumer, creating easy-to-use, all-in-one kits so she can achieve Salon Results at home. Each of these quality products originated from Kiss' innovative thinking and vast salon experience.

Earlier this week I attended a Webinar for Broadway Nails, now I have always been a fan of Broadway Nail when doing my nails from home simply because of the wonderful selection of products that they offer! I have always been able to find the perfect nails to match my mood or an event that I was attending. Just when I thought I knew exactly how to “do” my own nails it turns out that I didn’t know as much as I thought I did. I did learn a lot actually, my biggest problem with the nails was always the tiny air bubbles that would bug the heck out of me, as it turns out I wasn’t using enough glue on each of the nails I only used just a drop and I should have been using glue not only on the plastic nail but also on my real nail. I also learnt that taking them off I’ve been doing a super big No-No, I would always just pry the nail off my original nail and just ignore the directions to use acetone polish remover so from now on it’s going to be the only way I will be taking my plastic nails off. So using the information I received in the webinar and armed with several of the products that are new from Broadway Nails I set out last night to “do this thing right” while my husband was watching “Bug”!
The set of nails I decided on wearing for this first review was the new Fashion Diva-Mismatch Manicure called Harajuku Style in Love (which is my absolute favorite of the products I was sent!!)
I started my journey by laying out all ten nails in the order they needed to go on my fingers:
Then starting with my dominate hand (my right) I used my left hand to apply all five nails making sure I put plenty of glue and started at the cuticle area of my original nail. I made sure to leave the tabs on until of was fished with the entire hand. (Boy are these tabs super handy, they make applying the nail without gluing your fingers together so much easier).
I repeated the same process this time using my right hand to apply the nails to my left! And after what seemed like no time at all (10 mins) I had a beautiful manicure done by me in the comfort of my own home!
And the finished product:
I am so proud of how this set of nails turned out no air bubbles at all even today, so that’s awesome and the colors of the nails are so cool and my son will tell me what color every one of my nails is, so these are helping me teach him his colors and be a fashion diva all at the same time.. Cool Huh??? I’ve never really went out of the normal French tip color on my nails but since receiving these and loving them and all the other products I got to try out I’m now very open minded and I can tell you that I will be having more wild styles to come!! I really can’t stress enough how much I really enjoyed learning all the things I did during the Webinar and how much I love Broadway Nails!!
Be sure to check back next week when I review the Blush nails in the Fashion Diva series!! Also go over and check out all the designes on their Website!!
To purchase these nails for yourself visit your local drug store, Wal-Mart or anywhere Broadway Nails are sold!
This review is based strictly my opinion. Others may have a different opinion with the product listed above. I did receive the Broadway Nails mentioned above complementary for this review and for attending the Webinar. No monetary compensation was received.
