Incoco French Manicure review
I am all about being 100% honest so when I say I was hesitant when I got the email from Incoco about doing a review I mean it. I've seen other reviews with crinkly strips and didn't want this to go sour. But I took the plunge and oh my goodness am I glad I did!
So I got my package from them a day before I went on vacation. Perfect! I got to test these out for the entire week I was gone (I packed NO polish except the gifts for my sisters - that's how serious I was about leaving these on to test them).
Above is the French Manicure by Incoco. I wasn't sure what to expect so when I pulled the two sets of strips out I was a little bit surprised. It instructs to apply the white tip first, file off the excess, then top with the french color, and file the excess off. No base coat or top coat needed. That last bit made me twitch a little, but I did it anyhow.
READ THIS TIP!!! Where I think others have gone wrong is picking ones that looked like they may fit, but ending up with gaps and trying to stretch it to make it fit. Pick the next size up and tuck the strip down along your nail bed using an orange stick for a perfect fit. No stretching needed or frustration at putting one too small on.
You should get a nice fit like below with almost no effort. I've gone super close so you can see I'm not making this up.
ACK! Stained nail! But I wanted you to see how nicely the french colored strip blends out the stains to not even noticeable. I was stunned at the results.
Now for the week later images:
Went in close here so you can see the gap from the growth.
You can see from the above image I had one little piece come off. I nicked it trying to open a can of soda. There was tip wear but shockingly little. No other cracks or tears.
The packaging boasts 14 days of wear with little issues and I am inclined to believe it. I am hard on my nails. These were the PERFECT vacation nail strips.
Check out Incoco for other great designs. Each package contains one manicure with a few extra strips (I'll be using mine as accent nails).
I also received another manicure full color which will be up for giveaway with my pedicure review within the next few days. Have a great day everyone!
