Review - Incoco Dry Nail Applique Polish Strips

 I was extremely curious about how great Incoco Dry Nail Applique could actually be. Could they really pass off as a real colored manicure like you came out of the nail salon? Well maybe not exact, but pretty close!
 When I first tried these out, BIG FAIL. I read the directions on the box and it was hard for me to do it as easy as it said it would be. Then, I decided to go to their website and look up the video where it shows step by step what to do. Huge help! Once I saw the video, I went back to trying and it took me less than 3 minutes to finish one hand. Took a little time, but I got used to it. Now I'm slightly addicted to them. They are just so easy to use, for those times when you are in a rush and have no time to wait for wet nails to dry. Just put these on, and you have a great looking manicure!

Now, the sizes of these were kind of weird. They were either too big for my nails or too slim on the sides. So I had to file the sides on some and try to stretch a few to reach the sides. Kind of a bother. Could be my nails are oddly shaped. Not too sure if anyone else had this problem, let me know if you have before. 

Now another thing, they claim to last 14 days. After about 5 days my nails started to slightly chip on the ends of the nails. After about 8 days, they started to chip on the sides. By the 10th day I took the polish off with nail polish remover. So I can't really vouch for the 14 days that they claim.

So I hope this was helpful when your thinking about getting these. Incoco is available at Walgreens and on Incoco.com

  1. I've ALWAYS been interested about these things, but never got around to trying them out.

    Thanks for posting this review. Maybe if you added a top coat that might help elongate the manicure?

  3. Great review! I've tried Incoco once, and while they're convenient, I don't think I'd use them that often because they cost so much.

  4. I use clear top coat every day or two after I apply them and that extends the time they stay on. Also when you first apply them make sure you get the sides and base down flat so that when your nails grow out you don't have a ridge that catches on things. Mine usually last about two weeks, but with some chips and wear on the tips. Also I have thin brittle nails so without the incoco my nails rip and tear off and then I'm left with little stubby nails. With the incoco I see where the nail has bent because I get a crack in the polish..so it's definitely great for me!
