incoco nail polish appliques- berry swirl & muah muah


Another nail post today, blog fans. I apologize if you're not a nail fan; this should be the last nail post for the week... I think.

Anyhow, this post has been a long time coming. Every time I had the time to commit to these- meaning no other polishes that needed to be swatched- I'd end up breaking a nail. It always seems to happen to me when I'm planning to do something with my nails. The nail that broke was just long enough, so I decided I'd better get these on before I broke another one because that's just my luck. Read on to see more and find out if they really can last 14 days as they claim.

Oh. My. These are all kinds of amazing! I've used wraps in the past that I've liked, but Incoco has the best formulation by far. Their strips are incredibly thin and once applied on the nail meld on making them look like polish. You know how some wraps look good, but if you look at the edges too closely, it's clear that you're wearing wraps? Not with these! 

Application is the same as any other type of wrap- stick them on and file the excess. Easy. These applied even easier as I found I didn't even need to file the excess away. Once giving these a press down and a little stretch and the excess easily removed on it's own. I topped these with top coat to seal the edges as you may know I find everything chips on me and I wanted these to last. I'll admit that I didn't believe Incoco's claims of 14 days of wear- it just didn't seem plausible. But, I wore these for 12 days. Can you believe that?! I was absolutely stunned that these wore that long. The kicker is that they hadn't chipped when I removed them. Had I not needed my nails for swatching I could have easily gotten the 14 days wear. Amazing!


Berry Swirl was the design that I went for first as it's all kinds of cute! Its water marble look combines swirls of pinks and purple with a light iridescence. It defiantly gets the attention of others and is a great conversation starter. I've had a ton of compliments/ questions about them.

Not only do these apply easily they look amazing and the wear time can't be beat. I honestly can't think of a single negative other than the fact that you'll have a hard time deciding which pattern/shade to wear first. Incoco currently offers a staggering amount of options for both fingers and toes. 250 to be exact, with solid shades, patterns and French to choose from their is defiantly something for everyone. Have you tried Incoco wraps? Are you a fan of nail wraps?
