What do you do when you have no time for a manicure but don’t want your digits looking bare on your way to an event? Nail appliqués.
Being able to try this product has been an eye opener. The fact that it’s possible to have gorgeous nails in just minutes (3 mins tops each hand) without all the fuss — with no drying time required, no smudges or streaks is pretty awesome to me!
Don’t get me wrong, I still love regular nail polishes especially since I like to change colors often but if you’re in a rush and no time to sit around and go artsy with your nails, otherwise you’ll be late for the beauty event, party or brunch meeting, then It’s A Nail Appliqués by Incoco is your lifesaver.

Each appliqué is made of base, color and top coat of real nail polish (3-FREE) and can be gently stretched for a perfect fit. The Design Nail manicure set comes with 16 double-ended nail appliqués, a silver tape and a pink nail file to finish the job. Bear in mind that because it’s made of real nail polish, once you’ve opened the air sealed packaging, you need to reseal the unused ones using the silver tape provided, otherwise the nail appliqués will dry out and won’t stick anymore.

What to expect:
This will last you at least over a week. These appliqués are impressively well-made and with salon-quality finish. No one would ever know you just sticked them on, that’s for sure! The first thing you’ll probably notice is little chips on the edges after a week, which was totally ok because I actually expected them to chip sooner plus I was just itching to change my nail design anyway. On the plus side, you can take them off with regular nail polish remover any time.
There are three different types of appliqués to suit your style – Color nail, Design nail and Accent nail ranging from $3.99 to $8.99 per set. Of course, nothing could possible replace your wall of nail polishes fame but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with having a back up plan for busy beauty beans like us! And that’s coming from someone who normally prefers freehand nail art.
And oh, if you can do your mani in the car without your hubby going crazy because you’ll make a mess, now that’s a game changer!
