Incoco Real Nail Polish Appliqué Review

Hi loves!

Today's post was brought to you Incoco Nail Polish Appliqués.  I was given three fun styles of appliqués to try out:

You can find instructions included in the package, or you can check out a tutorial on their website found HERE .

The first appliques that I chose to use were Sweetie Pie, a cute dotticure.  

I started off by wiping my nails with acetone.  They recommend buffing but I had done some light buffing not too long before using these so I skipped that part.  Each package has two sheets of eight double ended appliques so finding a perfect size for your nails is pretty easy.  Once I sized them up, I peeled off the protective plastic, removed the applique from the backing and easily pressed them on to my nails using either my finger or the provided orange wood stick, and filed off the excess.

These were an absolute breeze to work with.  My only issue was on my pinkie.. the applique actually got stuck to my finger which resulted in a couple of rips, but these didn't interfere with the longevity of it.

A few of these were actually a little too big for my nails, but I took a brush dipped in acetone and wiped it over the extra bits and they very easily dissolved, leaving me with a perfect fit!

Removal was also a breeze, which make these a complete winner in my book!

These appliques retail for $7.99 over at the Incoco website, and there are a ton of cute designs to choose from.  Shipping is currently only available to Canada and the US, and is free on any purchase over $50 :)

Colourful Paisley

Hi loves!

Here's a fun mani I sported not too long ago.  These suckers lasted for ever because I loved them so much (and because they took forever to do), so I wore them for nearly a week :)

I can't take credit for these, I was checking out Pack A Punch Polish's blog and fell head over heels over THIS manicure so I recreated it using different polishes.


I'm not going to name all the polishes I used because there were way too many, but the base polishes, from index to pinky were:  China Glaze Life is Rosy, Sunday Funday, Fancy Pants & Budding Romance all from the Avant Garden collection.

Have a great Tursday guys.

Quick note:  My posting might be sporadic over the next few months - I'm finishing up my grad degree and therefore need to concentrate on writing/completing my thesis, plus I have a few trips home to Ontario, C's deployment ending AND a move half way across the country all coming up between now until mid-September - I apologize in advance :)
