Incoco Nail Polish Appliqués Review

**press samples**

Hello :)  I was sent 3 sets of Incoco Nail Polish Appliques.  These are made with 100% real nail polish and of course, 3-free (no dbp, toluene, or formaldehyde.)  Each appliqué contains a base, color and top coat.  These appliqués are quite thin but not flimsy, and you could easily stretch them to fit your nails.  Application was SUPER easy (tutorial).  Use a nail file or the one they include to remove the excess right at the tips.  

In my package, there were 3 sets of nail appliqué, an orange stick, a 3-way nail file & a 7 Way Nail Buffer
First Up Disco Queen Tips - black zebra print on silver - 2 sheets of 8 clear strips each (full nail size, top packet) and a single sheet of 8 double-ended strips for a total of 16 design tips (2 tips per strip); basically you apply the tips first, then add the clear polish strips
This is so not my style but I still loved it.  Sorry for the stained nails, didn't even realize it was that bad until I saw these photos :(
Wore these for 6 days and had VERY minimal tip wear !!  I have also done a very embarrassing experiment - used a pen to draw on them to see if the ink would stay on (seriously, I have had some ink left on my nail with regular nail polish that wouldn't come off?) and yes, the ink came off with a gentle rub.  The pen didn't even make a scratch or dent on the appliqués.  WOW !!!

To save unused strips, place them back in original silver package and tightly seal with the silver tape which comes with every package.  I purposely wrinkled the silver strip so it's easily noticed.
Rock Candy - a cool blue with very subtle green shimmer -  2 sheets of 8 double-ended strips.  For some reason, these appliqués kept breaking.  It was when I pulled the appliqués over the tips, half of one broke and to the point that I couldn't use the other side because they either couldn't fit the length of my nails or they had wrinkled up.  I broke 3 when I did these 4 nails .. These didn't feel any different from the other 2 sets, perhaps it was just a bad package?
I personally would not spend money on solid color nail wraps - I'd go for designs that I could never achieve on my own ...
Saved the best for lastZig (Glitter) - 2 sheets of 8 double-ended strips - the accent nail is Zoya PixieDust Liberty which stained my nails like CRAZY !!
I didn't stretch the appliqués to fit my nails from edge to edge because I didn't want crooked zig zag - no proof though but just didn't want to chance it !!
By now, you should know which one is my favorite?
Application:  Super duper easy, it only took me about 25 mins to do both hands;
Durability:  Very impressive and I am quite sure that these will last up to 14 days;
Removal:  Rock Candy (blue) came right off with regular nail polish remover and expect some staining on the skin around the nails during the removal process.  The 2 glitter sets took extra removal time because you're removing glitter.

Shipping is free on orders of $50 or more! They are currently only available to USA and Canadian addresses.
