Incoco Nail Polish Appliques Review

I received a package of Incoco Nail Polish Appliques in the mail today from a generous Tumblr user who received them in her Birchbox and wasn't interested in trying them (thanks again, Amanda!).  My new-found nail polish and nail art addiction fueled my interest in the Incoco strips.  I've used the Sally Hansen strips before, so I wanted to see how these compared.

Here is the final product on my nails.  As you can see, I didn't do a very good job of applying them.  They're a lot thinner than the Sally Hansen kind, which made it so much easier for me to tear them.  I actually liked that they're thinner, though, because I felt that they adhered to my nail really well.  It didn't feel like just a giant sticker on my nail, it really felt like real nail polish.  Which is good, considering these are made of real nail polish.  They come in a package with 12 total strips, in case you mess up a nail or need a different size.

I'm not quite sure what this pattern is called, but I like it.  I couldn't find a name on the package, and I can't find it on their website, either.  I'm guessing it must be Showstopper, even though the preview shows blue dots all over the nail (these have space in between the dots).  I was impressed by how well they bonded to my nail, and how easy the ends were to file off.  I applied one coat of clear topcoat over these to protect them, and I'm curious to see how long they last before peeling off.

Bottom Line: I would definitely be willing to purchase some Incoco strips and try applying them again.  They are a bit pricey when you factor in shipping, but the base price is less than the Sally Hansen kind.  I feel that these are high-quality upon application, I'll just have to see how long they last on my nails before chipping off. There are also tons of fun designs and colors to choose from.

*Disclaimer: I received these Incoco Nail Polish Appliques from a Tumblr user who received them in her Birchbox.  I was not monetarily compensated for this review, and the honest opinions are entirely my own.


  1. Your nails look so cute, love the designs.

  2. Oh wow - that is a really pretty nail design! Very eye-catching.
