In the past year nail polish strips have become de rigueur for fashionable girls in a rush!
While gel manicures lack of drying time is appealing the process at the salon can take as long as a pedicure but real nail polish strips can be done pretty quickly at home with just a steady hand!
Plus, you can achieve complicated patterns and designs without any work!
While patterned nails might once have been considered tacky (especially considering the airbrushing that was involved) thanks to celebrities like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna and the ease of polish strips nail design now seems fresh and exciting!
Incoco has some of the best quality strips on the market today thanks to 20 years of research on non-liquid polish so they've really innovated nail polish strips! All of Incoco's strips are made from real nail polish with base, color, and top coats all included!
My first encounter with Incoco was at a press lounge at NYFW. I had a deep purple gel manicure so I was worried I wouldn't be able to enjoy an Incoco manicure but they chose a gold pattern strip and did "accent" nails on each hand. The effect over the gel polish was stunning and two weeks later the gel manicure was peeling but my two Incoco nails still looked beautiful!
Their latest set of designs is the Drama Queen Collection and they are definitely for dramatic, look-at-me nails!
