Incoco Dry Nail Appliques are strips of base coat, nail polish and top coat, which come to you dry with a slightly adhesive backing. The strips are roughly nail shaped and there are 16 strips in a package which are double sided for a total of 32 sizes. I was pretty successful in finding the proper size for my nails.
I had some trouble with my ring fingers. I scrapped a few strips when trying to apply them to those fingers. I guess they're a funny shape. But I think you can see in the photos that it worked out fine. I did not run out of strips, in fact I had a few extra.
Being that this was my first time using the product I did not expect a flawless manicure but I think, if I do say so myself, I came pretty close. I had one nail on my right hand that looked like it had tip wear because I didn't stretch the applique properly over the edges of my nail, and some of the appliques on my right hand I sized wrong so you could see the sides of my nail if you were being picky about things but otherwise I was happy with the results.
Let's look at some photos. I apologize for the silly shape of my nails, I had recently cut them down and was going squoval but I don't think I did a good job LOL. They're better now.
Once on they felt like regular old nail polish. Once adhered you couldn't peel them back or anything. Once they were stuck they were on there like a regular polish.
I did not wear these long enough to test wear. I will do that with another package and report back. I removed these after three days and in that time I did not get any chipping or tip wear so that's pretty great. The website claims they last up to 14 days, I can't speak to that but it'd be interesting to try.
These come in a variety of colors and finishes including french manicure style (which I'd love to try). You can purchase them online for $7.99 a package. I think that's sort of pricey when you consider the average bottle of polish goes for about that and you get way more than one application from it, but it's a novelty item I guess.
So what do you think of Incoco Dry Nail Appliques? Have you tried them? Let me know your experiences. If you haven't tried them do you think you will? I think the idea is cool but I will stick to my good ol' classic bottled polish. I will use the rest of the strips I have and let you know how they are and if I come across and interesting "gotta have it color" I wouldn't hesitate to pick it up but these will not replace polish for me.
