Review: Inque Nails- Initial Thoughts


I posted last week about Inque nails here, and today my order arrived! I have been so excited to get these, I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning when I saw the parcel in with my mail.

When I opened the package I was greeted by my beautiful skins. They are glossy and vibrant and the images look perfect. Two of the designs I ordered are from their library of designs, but I also made a custom design (the clouds.) It is super easy to make your own custom design, all you need is a high quality image, upload it into their design maker, adjust to how you want it and voila!

Since I just couldn't wait, I had to try a set pronto. The skins come with full colour instructions and a coarse nail file. To apply you start by removing any nail polish you might have on and thoroughly wash and dry your hands. Then you apply the skins just like stickers. I thought that it might be hard to get them on, but I had no problems. It was a tad harder getting them straight on my right hand (I'm right handed) but you can adjust if you need to. After they are on you pres them down and file the tips until they are flush with your nails. Then comes the heat! You simply warm them up under your blow drier then apply pressure for 5-10 seconds. I was a bit paranoid that I hadn't warmed them up enough, so I did it at least three times. If needed, file them again and you're done. All in all the application process was super easy.

I've only had them on for a couple of hours, but they feel aright. At first you could feel that there was something different on your nail, but the feeling doesn't last too long. They look great, even thought I did take a tiny chunk out of my left pinkie (it's barely noticeable in person.) I can't say much for wear yet, but they claim to last up to a week on fingernails and up to two weeks on toenails, so we'll see. I have high hopes that they will make it a week. I'll update in a weeks time.

All in all I am very happy with Inque's nail skins and I would definitely order again. They normally go for $15 a set, but you can currently get five sets for $30 which is a pretty fantastic deal.

Would you be interested in trying Inque? Be sure to check back in the next couple of days for details on how you could win two sets of your own!

  1. My mum has good skin. So I just briefly took one of her SKII to use, which I assume is a moisturizer. It's good man I tell you! She gave me a small bottle of eye cream before but the effects weren't that great and I stopped using. But my mum's eye cream is good! I can feel it reacting once I applied it
