Review: Incoco non-liquid nail polish


I was contacted by Incoco, they asked if I wanted to try and review their products.
I know my blog isn't really a nail / nail polish blog, but I paint and decorate my nails almost daily, so I said yes.

Incoco tells the following about The Nail Polish Strips:

Say goodbye to liquid nail polish – no more drying time, smudges, or streaks! Incoco nail polish strips provide a perfect manicure in minutes. The strips are made of real nail polish, and each strip includes base, color, and top coats. Apply Incoco anywhere, any time!


So these aren't stickers, or minx (or what ever), these are nail polish strips, which don't contain Formaldehyde, DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate) Or Toluene.

So, first there's all kinds of stuff in the package:
There's 16 double-ended color strips and instructions (duh!),  nail polish removal cloth, nail file, cuticle stick, and some other stuff I couldn't figure out.

Here's how it actually works:

I have small nails, so I have pretty much of the excess "polish" to file off:

I actually do the same I do with "sticker nails", I cut the strip to half and use the other half to other hand.

But once all the choosing, shaping, applying and filing is over, the result is really neat:




At first I had some trouble applying the strip to place and with pulling the excess part off, so the result wasn't as neat as it could be:

Oscar Night
But once I learned the technique, it went much better:
Staccato
Disco Queen
I really, really like Disco Queen!
I think it feels like a nail polish, but looks way cooler than normal polish.


Personally I'm not such a big fan of these, I don't find applying nail polish too hard or time-consuming or anything, I kinda like it actually :D
I guess that's why I don't really get the point of getting normal nail polish in this form. I can surely understand these "wilder" ones, which you can't achieve normally, as these are an easy way to get awesome looking nails for parties or other events.
Luckily, Incoco offers somewhere around 50 different designs only in their Design Manicure series, and dozens of more in French Manicures and Color Manicures.
Price of the strips is from $5.99 to $10.99, depending of the design.

  1. They look really really great! A bit expensive though

  2. I've seen these by other brands and I can see how they would be convenient if you hate to wait for polish to dry or if you want a fun design. However, they are pretty pricey for one application. You can get a bottle of OPI, China Glaze, etc for cheaper than some of the strips I've seen and get multiple uses.

  4. I love Incoco nail polish strips! I do my nails daily, but sometimes I need a break from painting my nails so I reach for strips because they last and look great. I don't buy the ones that are plain or just glitter, but any of the designs I will apply. They wear really well. I like the Disco Queen design you have. I plan to apply another shade of Incoco strips next week so I don't have to worry about my nails for Thanksgiving.
