Let me introduce you to - Incoco!
What exactly is Incoco's revolution in nail polish you wonder? It's the world's first non-liquid nail polish.
This is how the nail polish strips look like:
The application is really easy. You can watch the demo HERE.
''Incoco nail polish strips are revolutionizing the industry. Each glossy strip provides a base coat, color coat and top coat. You can remove our strips with regular nail polish remover.''
I didn't use any top coat with these Incoco strips. I just followed the application instructions and that was it. I had some troubles finding the right size for my nails, but I think it went pretty well for the first time, don't you think?

Today I tried Incoco for the second time. I have to say it went really easy. The next time I'll be applying my strips, I'll do it in no time. =)

Each package of Incoco Dry Nail Applique includes:
* 16 double-ended color strips
* mini file
* cuticle stick
* reseal tape
* polish removal cloth
* instruction booklet
What do I think of it: I have to say I was really interested when I first heard about this new dry nail polish. I think it was Angie who told me about it (thanks, Angie!). I didn't expect to much from it, but I was excited to try it anyway. As I already said, the application was a bit tricky the first time: finding the right size for my nails, placing the strip correctly on my nail, removing the excess... But the manicure looked nice anyway. Today I tried it for the second time and the application was a breeze. =) Incoco ''promises'' this manicure will last up to 14 days. Well, that's not exactly true. At least not in my case. And although they say this strips are 3 in 1 (base, color and top coat), I still use a regular fast dry top coat with it. The strips are quite gentle and it can happen that you scrape it off - especially in the first couple of hours while wearing it. The removal is as easy as they say.
+ no smell
+ no drying time
+ application (need no clean-up)
- finding the right size/shape for your nails
- application (can be tricky)
Conclusion: I like the idea, but I think it's still a diamond in the rough. It would be *wonderful* if they made designs like Minx has. Or foils. I don't mean the foil finish, but those foils I wore a couple of times, remember. I'd definitely use this system, but the price is too high for me. For special occasions? Sure. For every day? Not really.
