Incoco - Dry Nail Applique

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. =)

Incoco, Penny Rose


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.

Pros:
+ no smell
+ no drying time
+ application (need no clean-up)

Cons:
- finding the right size/shape for your nails
- application (can be tricky)
- price

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.

  7. I've bought one set when they were on sale (believe they're d/c now).. still haven't tried them yet because I've got a few silk patches- I'm eager to try them out but sadly aren't cheap here (~7€, I think they're half the price in the us)

  10. I've used them for nail art as well. I think they are a great idea for travel since you can just throw them in your carry on or purse.
    I love the colors.

  11. Pretty cool idea. I'm cack-handed though so I'd probably wreck it.
