Yesterday, Bree and I tried the Incoco Dry Nail Applique after we received a few samples from the company.

Incoco Nail Polish Strips are made from real nail polish and have a base coat, color and top coat combined into one strip. They come in a package with two sheets of nail strips (shown above) for a total of 32 sizes.

I loved that there is no drying time and no worry of spills, and I REALLY LOVE the nail polish remover cloths.

What I didn’t love is the process of applying the nail polish strips.

I’m an expert painter when it comes to doing my own nails so the ordeal of fumbling through the application of Incoco nail strips was not fun. I almost didn’t finish my right hand because it took me so long. However once I made it through and applied nail strips to all 10 fingernails, I was rather impressed with how good they looked.

Bree easily applied the nail strips to her left hand and asked for my help with her right—ending up with a really great looking manicure.

At $7.99 for one manicure set (includes nail strips, mini file and cuticle stick, tester strips, reseal tape and one polish remover cloth) I wouldn’t want to replace my regular polish routine for these strips. However, I like the idea of being able to pack them on a trip (I could even apply them on an airplane!) or having a set around for those occasions when I have zero drying time.

Incoco Dry Nail Applique Nail Polish Strips are available in 30 colors and 6 French-manicure shades and can be purchased at Walgreen’s or online at incoco.com for $7.99.

  • I suck at doing my own nails what with base coat, 2 polish coats and a top coat. I’m lucky to get through without a smudge, and if my manicure lasts a week.

    I love these naand used them for 6 months, but they are no longer available in Hawaii. They last for ten days to two weeks.

  • I mean I love those nail stickers! I can do both hands in 15 to 20 minutes.

  • I too love the look of these nail strips. Although application is certainly not foolproof. I agree that they are great to use in spaces where you don’t want to bother people with the smell of lacquer!
