Birthday Nails!: Incoco Review

c/o Incoco: Top to Bottom- Show Off, Pretty Thing, Call of the Wild

Recently, I had the opportunity to try some Incoco Dry Nail Polish Strips.  I was saving them for a special occasion, and what better time than my birthday to sport some pretty nail designs? =)  I absolutely LOVE the patterns I chose.  The best thing about nail strips is that you can give yourself a beautiful manicure with very little effort.  Everything comes in one handy kit and it took me about 20 minutes to apply the strips, and that’s just because I had to clip my nails first!

For my first go-round with these, I decided to start with this pretty pink chevron pattern (aptly named, Pretty Thing :). The application process is so simple: just choose the strip that best fits your nail, peel off the backing, apply to your nail, and file off any excess strip!  In comparison to other nail polish strips, I find the Incoco strips more flexible and easier to mold to your nails. They are also a little bit cheaper, ranging from $8-10 per set.  Incoco has an amazing selection of patterns, as well as many solid colors and french tip sets too.  I would definitely recommend Incoco Nail Strips for a chic and easy manicure!

I can’t wait to use the other patterns I choose!  You should definitely check out the Incoco website to see what colors/patterns they have.  I’m also excited for them to release their holiday collection- click here for a sneak peek! :)

P.S. I’m thinking of making my weekly manicures a regular feature here since I’m always trying out new colors/designs on my nails.  What do you guys think?

P.P.S. Check out my brand new Google+ page for my blog!  Who else is on Google+?  Let me know in the comments below!

P.P.P.S. Last one of these, I promise!  The lucky winner of my Birthday Month Giveaway was Jeanne– congratulations to her!

    Love the designs you chose! I decided to get a set of the sally hansen and I’ve been holding on to them forever – it’s like “nooo can’t waist the $10 nail strips on just any old day!”

    And that is why nail strips are a bad idea. With polish your just like, oh I’ll do this color today and take it off tomorrow and whatever I’ll never use up a whole bottle. (Honestly, I’ve never emptied a bottle of nail polish. Except for clear.)
