Broadway Nails Nail Wraps Review

We Try More Stick-On Nail Wraps


Here's the picture, and here's the full review.

Despite writing about beauty for a living, I hardly ever have manicured nails. I like to think this is me challenging rigid patriarchal grooming standards, but it's really more about finding the time to let polish dry for an hour. Any shortcut to better-looking hands, therefore, is worth a try in my book. This past weekend, I came across Broadway Nails Nail Dress wraps (about $6) and had to have a look.

Similar to Nail Fraud, these wraps are easy to apply. You just stick them on, then file off the excess. The package includes 28 wraps in 14 sizes, but unfortunately, most were slightly too wide or too slim to fit my nails. (The wraps can be trimmed, but since the whole point of this exercise is for lazy me to conserve time, I passed.) Once on, the wraps' staying power was decent, but I would recommend using a different pattern; the polka-dot pattern screamed, "I'm wearing stickers on my digits." For a quick and easy way to cover nails, these get the job done. But for an actual manicure, I'm afraid there are no shortcuts to a polished look.

I usually use Seche Vite fast drying top coat literally dry nails in a couple minutes, or nails inc. do a fast drying topcoat as, but I can't remember the name at the minute. I do alot of nail art and sometimes change my nails daily, I wouldn't be able to if it wasn't for these products!

Rach, I'll check it out. Like you, I don't have the time to sit around. I mean, honestly, if I had a spare hour, I'd probably use it to catch up on sleep. Will take a look next time I'm at Sephora.Frenched, they are fun to play around with, and not too expensive. They just looked like, well, stickers. I might try a different variety if I buy these again, because I think the black was just a little more plastic-y than I prefer.

I'd like to try them only because I'm somewhat ADDICTED to anything nail-related!

Bella, you should try Sephora by OPI Nail Color Drying Drops. After you're finished painting your nails you just put 1 drop of this stuff on them wait about 3 minutes and you're nails are COMPLETELY dry! I swear by this stuff, I don't have the time or patience to do my nails and then sit around for an hour afraid to touch or do anything. I was in ecstatic when I found this stuff and it actually worked!
