Here at StyleSpotter we love finding new life hacks that save us time and money (who doesn’t?), so naturally when we got the chance to try Incoco Nail Polish Appliqués, we didn’t hesitate. These nail strips include the base, color, and top coat plus don’t need time to dry, making them a major time saver. And at $7.99-$8.99 each with a life of 14 days, they are a lot less expensive  and longer lasting than a typical manicure. They are also available in a wide range of ornate designs that we could never re-create ourselves, like the Pretty Thing design we tried.

Each pack comes with clear instructions on how to apply the strips, and 16 strips in different widths are included, so odds are the right width for all of your nails will be there. Placing the strips on each nail was simple enough, but before getting started, we were a bit confused with how to remove the excess portion of the strip at the end. However once we got the hang of it, removing the end pieces with the buffer was very easy and quick. The instructions say to buff nails before application, which we did on one hand, but failed to do on the other. Interestingly enough, buffing nails made a huge difference in the time the appliqués lasted. On the hand we hadn’t buffed, the strips started to peel off after about 7 days, but on the nails that we had buffed, they lasted the full 14 days! The appliqués are made of real nail polish, so we were able to remove them with nail polish remover just like any other manicure.

Overall, we definitely recommend using Incoco Nail Appliqués. The application was easy and they looked amazing! It doesn’t only save you time and money, but they are a chance to experiment with nail art without having to break the bank at a nail salon. We can’t wait for the holidays so we can try these and these. Check out some images of what they looked like, including a sneak peak of the StyleSpotter app.
