I have a different kind of post for you today. I was approached by Incoco and asked to review some of their Nail Polish Appliqués I have only tried polish strips once before and it was by another company. That experience was bad enough that I ended up returning the product. So I was super happy to get the chance to try some appliqués from a company who specializes in them.
Incoco sent me two sets of strips to review for you today. The patterns I chose were Rock Out! and Urban Jungle. Here are the supplies I used to apply the appliqués.
Incoco Nail Polish Appliques, a rough file, a fine file and a rubber tipped cuticle pusher.
I applied Rock Out! first to both hands (no photos of the Cinderella hand, sorry guys.)
This was my first try, but I think they came out pretty good. I didn't have the filing quite down yet, so I ended up with what looked like tipwear, but that was because of my poor application, not the strips.
I really liked the pattern on these and got a ton of compliments at work when I wore them.
The strips took only about 10 minutes to apply on each hand and were super easy to apply. I had no trouble with them not sticking and they stretched easily to allow for the curve of my nails.
Next up is the pattern Urban Jungle, which I only applied to my left hand for this review. I re-sealed the package and am hoping to use the rest as accent nails or to cut out for some small decals in the future. We'll see if it works out.
The second time I was more careful with the file and no tipwear problems. I looooooove how these came out. They are super sparkly in real life.
Once again, i had no problems applying these appliqués and they felt like real polish once I had them on.
Best part of these? No dry time. Perfect for a night out when you're running late and don't have time to wait for a mani to dry or to do some freehand nail art.
Overall I was very impressed with these nail polish strips and I would definitely recommend them!
