Incoco Nail Polish Strips in Sweet Sangria - Review & Giveaway!

October 27, 2013

Hello ladies!
Today I have a special treat for you! Along with today's review post, I am also having a giveaway that was generously sponsored by Incoco. You can find more info about the giveaway at the end of this post.

First things first, let's get to the review. Last week I received an awesome nail mail from Incoco, including three sets of their nail polish strips, which I will be reviewing at the blog.
The first set that I will be reviewing today is Sweet Sangria, it's a classy design in raspberry shade with a geometric design at the bottom of the nail.

In case you were wondering, Incoco's nail strips are not just pretty stickers - they are actually made of real nail polish in a dry strip form, with base coat, color coat and top coat compressed into one layer.
Believe me, if you only used simple nail stickers so far, when you'll try real nail polish strips, you will feel the difference!

The Sweet Sangria nail polish strips set includes a total of 16 double ended appliques in different sizes, 8 for each hand so you can pick the size that fits your nails best. The nail polish strips are sealed in an airtight package, so you will need to use them right after you open the package, otherwise they will dry out and most likely will not be useable.

As for application, it is very simple and similar to other nail strips. You can see the full instructions at Incococ's How to Apply page.
I didn't have much trouble finding the right size for each nail, although I did had to stretch some of them a bit to get a perfect fit, but that was easily done since the strips were elastic and relatively thick. Yet you need to be careful not to pull them too much, or else they will tear.
Once I applied the strip to each nail, I filed off the excess with the nail file that was provided with the set (not in photos). The whole application took me less then 10 minutes per hand, that might be a bit long but I preferred to work slowly and carefully, and when I was finished - I had a perfect manicure that was completely dry and I was ready to go!

You are probably curious about the wear time, so I should start by saying that I rarely keep a design on my nails longer than two or three days, so my wear-test with these strips isn't very accurate. I wore them for about two days, and I barely noticed any changes from when I first applied them. I can tell you tho that I am currently wearing another Incoco's design, this is the 4th day and they are holding up great. I intend on keeping them for three more days, and I should be able to report the results at my next Incoco post.

My overall opinion on Incoco's nail polish strips so far is great! I like the easy application, the great colors and patterns they offer, and it seems like they are actually long lasting. I think these are perfect to use if you are going on vacation and you don't want to bring a bunch of products with you, or if you are in a hurry and have to get your nails done quickly and have professional looking manicure.

Incoco offers a large range of real nail polish strips in various trendy nail colors and nail designs, you can also find colorful french tip designs, classic french tips and even pedicure colors ans designs.
The great thing about Incoco is that they are keeping it fresh and interesting, constantly releasing new designs and collection, like the recent Halloween collection that includes glow in the dark strips, and the classy Fall collection, so there is always something to look forward to.
Incoco's nail polish strips range is available at their site for $7.99 for solid colors / glitter, $8.99 for designs / patterns and $9.99 for french manicure.
