Review and Giveaway: Incoco Nail Strips

Remember a few posts/a month ago when I went to all those Fashion Week events? Well, when I was at Robert Verdi's Luxe Lab the first thing I did was have a manicure at the Incoco table and I fell in love! These nail strips are perfect for every fashionista coming in a variety or colors and patterns with no hassle application and staying power. I was so thrilled when I reached out to them and they responded promptly with samples!

Check out all the options! I'm glad that someone else picked them for me because after browsing through their website I wouldn't have been able to make up my mind, they have so many great patterns! Not only was I noticing great things for myself but, fun colors and patterns that would make ideal stocking stuffers for the impending upcoming holiday season.

I'm wearing Casting Call which was also seen on the Spring 2012 Vivienne Tam runway!
I decided to try the sample I found most impressive (and was thrilled they included) the French Manicure strips... No one makes anything like this and the idea of being able to do my own (successful) French Manicure was a no brainer! I wanted to see how easy it would be.

That was simple now wasn't it! Seriously, it really was... after filing your nails to the desired shape/length and cleaning them thoroughly (that is important for a longer lasting manicure) you start with the white tips. This was the trickier part for me because I wasn't sure how much white tip I wanted but, I did the best I could. Then came the sheer strip which, as you can see in the pic, is really sheer. And voila, instant(ish) French Manicure.

I am already seeing some chips but, that is my own fault. Like I said the while tips were tricky for me... My advice would be to make sure that you are 100% sure before you apply the strip to your nail. Do not pull it off and reattach it five or six two or three times. The full sheer pink part (or other nails strips in general) are much less tricky to apply because the beginning point is your cuticle.

Now for the fun news for you! I am so happy to be able to share some of the Incoco swag with you. I will be giving away one of the samples that I got "Suit Up", a 7 way nail buffer, and some nail polish remover pads!
