Incoco: a Perfect Manicure in Minutes

Sunday, September 12, 2010
Hi guys! Today I want to show you something I only have heard of since a couple of months: nail polish strips. Incoco is a brand that offers these self-stick nail polish strips.

The Strips

Incoco offers you strips that are made 100% of nail polish. There is a big variation in the strips you can find: color manicures, glitter manicures, french manicures, pedicures, tips and sheer. You don't have to worry about staining because each strip contains base coat, nail polish and a top coat. The strips are B3F, which means they don't contain formaldehyde, toluene and DBP. Depending your lifestyle, the strips can be worn about fourteen days.

How to Apply

You might think it's hard to apply but after doing it a few times you know the drill. First you select the size and make sure you start with neat nails: you clean, buff, shine the nails and push back the cuticles. After that you peel of the clear film and the colour strip. You take off the tab from the strip and you apply it to your nails. Rub the strip on your nail and smooth out the wrinkles. You push the end of the strip under your nail and tear off the excess. If it's necessary you can smoothen up the edges with the included file.

There, you're done! If you are a picture person yourself I suggest you take a look on Incoco's site. It shows you how to do it in film, pictures ánd a PDF file.

My Experiences

Incoco was very generous and gave me quite a lot to play with. I have tried most of them and they stay on for a long time! I get bored easily but the longest I've had one set on was 6 days and it still looked great. Application is a bit difficult at first but you'll get the hang of it quickly enough. Removing these is also very easy, even glitter removal is okay and no longer a pain in the ass. :o) I'm wearing Berry Rich in the picture, a very warm and sparkly purple shade.

For more information you can check out the Incoco website. For us Dutchies there is good news, these strips are being sold under the name Impulss and can be found in Douglas and ICI Paris XL. Prices variate but the Berry Rich sells for $7.99. You'll receive two strips and that is one full manicure.
