I wanted to thank all of you that left sweet birthday wishes on my last post. :) It was a great day.
So today, I have a review of some nail strips that were sent to me for review by Incoco. They are real nail polish strips with no dry time. That's probably my favorite part of these!
This is how a set of strips come in a sealed package. This is the April Showers shade. The instructions say not to open them until you are ready to actually use them. This is so they don't dry up.
And a back view of the package has instructions for full nail design as well as using them to make a french tip. The application is pretty straightforward. A good tip is to make sure your nails are buffed/or totally clean. I rubbed a cotton square with remover over my nails before applying these.
Once opened, this is what you get. With most nail strips I have tried, I normally have a hard time finding the perfect size for my nails but that wasn't an issue with these Incoco ones, so that was a nice change.
I combined the April Shower strips with the Pink Parasol printed strips for this spring look. I found that the patterned strips were significantly easier to apply than the creme strips. Once applied to the nail these sort of meld to the nail shape and look like more realistic nail polish than they do in the package.
Overall, these seem to be pretty good nail strips. I didn't have any problems with staying power either. My only complaint I guess is that the creme strips were so much harder to get a perfect application than the ones with a pattern. So I would recommend a patterned design over a plain creme one.
You can purchase Incoco Nail Appliques *here*. There are ton of designs to choose from!
What do you think of these nail strips?
