Incoco Dry Nail Applique Adventures

I mean to get this post up ages and ages ago. I don't know why I kept putting it off, I just...did. It's not because I wasn't excited about it, because I really liked this product.

Most of you know about Incoco Dry Nail Appliques already, but for those who don't, they are dry strips that you stick on your nails. What surprised me is that it is actual non-liquid nail polish, not some paper material or anything. There are sixteen different sizes that you can match to fit your nails; the side of the sticker that goes on the base of your nail is kind of a "squoval" shape, and while some of my nail beds are rounder (or diamond-shaped, what the eff, Ring Finger?) it worked. Once you put it on your nail, you fold over the excess over the tip and file it off. At least, that's what I think they mean. That's what I did.




According the the website, your manicure can last up to fourteen days, but the longest I left it on for was nine days. No chips, no peeling, nada.


 First I tried this frosty pink. Isn't this the perfect color for the Pink Ladies in Grease? I believe this is Tickle Pink, but don't hold me to that. I can't find the name of the color on the package, so I'm going by the colors on the website.

As you can see, I had a little trouble applying the sticker smoothly, especially at the tips of my nails. If that happens, you can kind of peel it off before it dries and try again; practice makes perfect, though.


I think it looks pretty sophisticated on my nails, if I do say so myself.



I'm not sure what happened with Oscar Night. I was all over the place with my application.
Super pretty color, though. I'll try it again.


I'm excited to try more of these, but I want to wait until my nails are a little bit longer. Have you guys ever tried these? Will you now? What were your experiences? Will I ever stop ending my posts with questions? Unlikely.

this product/products were sent to me to review. see disclosure policy for more information.

  1. wow, that pink one does look really sophisticated! I don't know if I'll ever try these as I have a billion colors of bottled polish to choose from, but maybe...if I am having a particularly shaky day.

  2. I agree; if there were a ton of colors, I'd be more apt to buy them. But they're a fun change...plus if you apply them well (like I kind of didn't haha) they look quite nice!
