incoco nail polish appliques giveaway!

March 2, 2012

Okay…how cool are these?

I’ve been skeptical about nail polish stickers and appliques, but after a good experience with Nail Rock a few weeks ago, I’ve had my eye on a few other brands. Incoco offered to send me a few of their 100% real nail polish appliques, and I was excited to give them a try.

I tried Suit Up, one of their glitter design manicures. This glittery houndstooth print is about as rad as it gets. I can’t get enough of it.

My nails are pretty average in shape and size, so I imagine it might be a bit more difficult to get a good fit if your nails are significantly smaller or larger than their strips, but they do provide you with a few sizes to play around with.

Since these are real polish strips rather than stickers, I found that they stretched and shaped to fit my nail a lot more cleanly than other brands I’ve tried that can leave ragged edges or creases.

It’s such a joy to have zero drying time, though I did baby my nails a bit for the first hour or so as they seem to start a bit soft and harden and set later.

Five days in, my nails were still going strong with just a bit of tip wear (camouflaged well by the pattern) and a little grow-out.

These come off with regular nail polish remover and didn’t do any damage to my nails. This houndstooth design is really glittery so the removal was a little lengthy and messy, but for five days of sweet nails, that’s okay by me.

I have a few other designs to show you, but I’ll spread out the fun…

The lovely people at Incoco sent me a set of appliques in Rush to giveaway to one of YOU!

I might throw in an extra Incoco treat for the winner, too…

To enter, leave a comment telling me whether you’ve tried nail stickers/appliques/strips, and what you thought of them.

For an additional entry, follow me on Twitter and leave a SEPARATE comment telling me that you did so! Or that you already follow me!

I’ll choose a winner randomly on Monday. Have a great weekend!

    Ive never tried nail stickers but am obssessed with polishes. I love all the new fun colors coming out and I feel like I want to try them all! Would love to check these stickers out! Always looking for something new, fun, and convenient!

    I have tried the Sally Hanson ones, I had the leopard and I loved them they were really smooth although, I am not sure if they changed it or what but I am noticing that others that use it it seems thick and people are having a hard time getting it to stick, so I am not sure if it’s just the decal itself or they changed the formula, but that was the only one that I tried and I liked it :)

    I’ve never tried the nail stickers but theyve always looked appealing!

    I’ve been wanting to try something like this but haven’t wanted to spend the money, fearing I wouldn’t like it. But it sounds like these work really well!

    I’ve never tried them but have wanted to for a while! I wonder if you could just cut them in half if you have shorter nails and be able to use the second half later…

      Hi Meg, I have used the Sally Hansen strips many times and always cut them in half – works great – that way, I saved the unopened strips for a later manicure. But their packaging lends itself to that – Just make sure you don’t leave the unused strips uncovered or they will dry out.

      I’ve only tried a sample pack of Incoco, so only enough for one application – Anna, does their full-sized packaging allow for the strips to be cut in half?

      • March 3, 2012 6:55 PM

        Meg and Steph – The full size Incoco pack has 16 nail strips – 2 lines of 8 nails each. However, both lines of nails come in the same sealed pack.

        So yes, in theory you could totally cut them in half and get two full uses, as long as you seal up the leftovers quickly in another plastic bag (I’m guessing that work work, but they might still dry out?) These things dry out so fast, sadly. I wish they didn’t, cause they’d be so fun to use one-at-a-time for accent nails! I’ll try it next time and let you know how it goes.

    I have tried nail appliques before. I try to save them for special occasions because the edges tend to roll up after a few days. I’ve found that covering them w/ clear polish can help them last longer. This is so nice of you to do a giveaway :-)

    I’m horrible at applying nail polish.I haven’t tried stickers or appliques and think I really should. Would be a lifesaver. I’ve never mastered the art of applying nail polish to my right hand without messing up a nail =).

    I’ve used the Sally Hansen ones before and they are pretty easy to apply once you figure out the right size. I’ve tried the Incoco ones before (got them in a birchbox) they were blue glitter ones and I couldn’t get them to go on right and were all lumpy. I’d give them another shot though, and these ones look fun. And I’m going to go follow you on twitter now :)

    Ah just noticed the separate comment for twitter requirement!

    I’ve been using the Sally Hansen strips and love them! They stay on for 2 weeks. I just found out about Incoco and I can’t wait to try them! Their colors and patterns are so cute and they have French manicure too!!

    Just followed you on twitter too @nancypisa :)

    Okay I have tried the Sally Hansen stickers which are my favorite so far. sommSonetimes they don’t fit my nails and they’re not too stretchy, but they definitely have designs that I’d never be able to do otherwise. I have also tried Bliss nail bling…which I would not recommend. Bad edges and they were SO thick I took them off in less than 24 hours. I’ve been hearing a lot about incoco though so I’d be excited to try!

    I haven’t tried stickers, but ever since I saw Sally Hansen’s nail polish stickers in Walgreens I’ve been very tempted to try them!

  22. March 29, 2012 3:24 PM

    I’ve tried sally’s and NCLA I like the no waiting to dry time compared to polish :)
