Incoco Nail Polish Appliques: Review

Hi guys! Today I have a long overdue for you from Incoco. For those of you who haven't heard of them, Incoco makes nail polish appliques (read: full nail decals) that are made entirely of nail polish! I tried out four different patterns, but there are over 200 different designs and colors to choose from, including solid colors and french manicure tips. So let's check them out:

This first set is called Enchanted Sea, and it's a super sparkly blue, green, and silver gradient. This was the first nail applique I have ever tried, so I expected to make a couple of mistakes. The instructions say to buff your nails before applying, but I did that recently, so I skipped that step. I did wipe my nails clean of any fuzz or lotion first, though. Then, I picked the appropriate size decal for each nail and stuck it on - no base or top coat necessary! I did mess up placement a couple of times, but the appliques were easy to peel off to reposition. You can also gently stretch the appliques to make them fit the nail. Once I was satisfied with my positioning, I pressed down hard and the appliques stuck pretty firmly. Then, I filed off the excess from my free tip for a smooth look.

Shown above is Yours Truly, which I think I applied even better than the first set. Once I got the hang of it, applying the strips were super easy. I did find that the decal for my pinky finger was slightly too square at the nail bed, so I just pressed another nail down on the edge to make a clean "cut" on the decal and peeled away the excess.

Shown above is Pretty In Pastel. I love this festive tribal print pattern! I wish I had saved it for Easter, it's so perfect for the holiday! I think these strips are great because they make a great full manicure, or just a cute accent nail. However, I should note that if once you open the package, the nail polish appliques that you don't use will dry out (since they are made of real polish!), so you can't use the set more than once.

And finaly, we have It's a Secret, which is a super elegant silver chevron set. I did mess up my pinky nail for this set, but I love the way the rest of the nails turned out. I like that this set is sheer and elegant. It would make a gorgeous accent nail for a silver manicure!

Incoco Nail Polish Appliques are available online for $8.99 per set of 16 strips for patterns, or $7.99 for solid colors. You can also get pedicure sets for the same price. (Although, I got the regular manicure set and I found that the two biggest strips fit perfectly on my big toes!) The strips are supposed to last for up to two weeks, and they can be removed with regular nail polish remover. They're great if you don't have the time or patience for a detailed manicure, but need something pretty on your nails that will last for a long time!
