Greetings loved ones! Lets take a journey! (Kudos to you if you know who said that without googling it!) Last month I was contacted by Incoco to review their 100% real nail polish strips and I was super excited! I have tried the Sally Hansen polish strips (and even the old Avon ones from 2005ish) but 'back then' I didn't take care of my nails the way I do now so it was like putting a $10,000 wedding dress on an old muskrat...pointless. SO when the opportunity arose to give it another go you can bet your sweet behind I jumped at it!
Incoco Nail Polish Appliques are 100% real strips of flexible "pre-dried" nail polish that you stick to your naked nails and smooth out to bond it to your nail. There is no dry time and clean up is as easy as wadding the excess material up and tossing it in the trash. They are 3-free and they claim to last up to 14 days! Removal was simple, just a little bit of your favorite nail polish remover and a couple of cotton balls - no need to peel and no damage to your nail bed. There are nearly 250 different colors and designs to choose from for your nails and toes, from glitters, to neons, to french tips, gradients, stamp-like strips...even a faux water marble! AND they're made in the USA (shout out to New Jersey!)

|Unboxing! YAY! This is 'Summer Sizzle'|
There are 16 strips in each package. Something that I LOVED about these babies is that each strip is double ended! One side is slightly more rounded than the other and they taper differently toward the middle. This was PERFECT for me because some of my nail beds are curved at the cuticle and some are more square, and my middle fingers get wider closer to the tip whereas my ring finger tapers inward slightly. This offers superior fit and I was able to find a pretty good match for each of my nails.

SO HOW DO I feel about them? I like them but I think I need more practice on the application end of things and they are a little too pricey ($8.99/set) for me to use regularly. I was only able to wear these strips on my hands for a couple of hours before I had to take them off. The ripples on the tip of a couple of them allowed water to get underneath and they peeled up shortly after I did some dishes. Additionally I had to preposition a couple of them which broke the bond with my nail and when I ran my hands through my hair my hair slipped under a lose edge, got caught, and lifted it up. HOWEVER I applied the left over strips to a couple of my toes and they wore FANTASTICALLY WELL for a good 3 weeks before I decided to change my pedi and soaked them off. Its no secret I am very rough on my hands so my inability to wear these for too long on my nails is quite certainly my fault LOL. I am definitely looking forward to using the Glory Days set for the next appropriate holiday, and if the pedi-strips are as sticky as the hand ones I will definitely pick up a set or two for my toes!
