First Impression: Incoco Nail Polish Applique

Since I was starting to get back into doing my nails... I decided I would try these nail polish sticker thingys I got as a sample from Septembers Birchbox. I have seen so many people using the Sally Hansen ones and say that they love it so I figured, why not give it a go!

Incoco Nail Polish Applique in 'Femme Fatale' $8.99

Real nail polish stickies that are pre-made and pre-designed with a base coat, color and top coat in each nail sticky. You can shape them to your nail and file off the excess with a nail file. No need to wait for drying and you can do your nails in minutes! Anywhere, anytime!

First Impression
I know I suck badly at painting my nails with real nail polish, so I thought these stickers would be a lot easier... but apparently... I also suck at putting stickers on my nails too! They didnt take nearly as long as if you had to paint your nails, it took me about 10-15 minutes to apply all of them. However, they claim that you can stretch them, shape them, and reapply them, but I dont think they quite lived up to that claim =( When I did them, once I put them on my nail, it was STUCK there. If I tried to take it off and reapply, it would stretch and get wrinkled.. not so pretty.. Also, I tried to file off the excess on the sides of the nail since the stickers were too big, and they wouldnt file off nicely, so I just ended up pushing it in. I also felt like you can tell they are stickers and not actual nail polish, but it might have been the leopard print design that threw me off.

Overall Thoughts
Would I purchase it again and give it another try? Probably, since it only took me 10-15 minutes. I saw some really cute designs on their website which might suit me a little better than the leopard print. They also have solid colors and french tips in various colors and glitters. Im unsure about how long these things will last on my nail, or if they chip like regular nail polish.. I guess only time will tell!

Whats your take on nail polish stickers? Have you tried any?

Until next time! Over and Out!

I think they look wicked pretty on you! Even though it sounds like a PITA to apply. I gave mine away, though I probably would have used one at a time as an accent nail cause I do not have that kind of patience! You are brave. <3

*lol* Over and Out, that's funny! :o)

I have never tried these stickers, but I think they look good on you! They don't even look like stickers, which is great, they look like you did the artwork yourself!
