Incoco Nail Polish Strips in Very Rosy (Review)

Recently I reviewed the Incoco Nail Polish Strips in Sweet Spots (see the full review HERE). Today I’m reviewing the design Very Rosy which features an orange, red, and pink floral design with green accents and a creamy pinky-white background.

Like Sweet Spots, Very Rosy came with sixteen double-ended strips that last on the nails for up to 14 days. The strips also came with a little nail file, an orange stick, and application instructions. I wore Very Rosy for a full two weeks before easily removing the design with a cotton pad and regular nail polish remover. Aside from some slight wear at the tips of the nails, after two weeks the strips looked almost exactly the same as they did the day that I applied them. Surprisingly, they even lasted through a Saturday afternoon task of pulling down old wallpaper.

One thing that I really love about the strips is that they are made of real nail polish that is 3-free, so the polish does not contain any harmful dbp, toluene, or formaldehyde. Being made of real nail polish also allows the strips to last much longer than nail stickers made of other materials.

Over the last year I have tried many different types of nail strips, and I would say that the Incoco strips are most comparable to those from Sally Hansen in terms of application and wear time. I do find that Incoco has more unique design and colour options than Sally Hansen, as well as a lower price tag.

In terms of application, these strips were easy to apply and they were quite stretchy so I could smooth them over my nails with ease to avoid bubbles or uneven patches. There were a few instances where I didn’t place the strip in the correct spot on the first try; however, it was not a problem since the strips are easy to lift and reposition even though they stick to the nail quite well once they are pressed down firmly and smoothed out.

Since the strips already have a coating of top coat, the design always has a shiny finish and does not need any additional product to keep it shiny or help it last longer. The finish did not become dull with wear and the design did not fade over time.

Overall, I’m very impressed with the nail strips from Incoco and I will definitely purchase from this company in the future.  I really like using nail strips because there is no drying time and, in my opinion, they last so much longer than liquid nail polish on my nails. They also don’t make my house smell like nail polish and there is nothing to clean up after application.

The Incoco nail strips can be purchased from The website also includes a store locator.

What are your thoughts on nail strips?

*Although the company sent me these strips to try out, all opinions are honest and are my own*
