You may be quite skeptical about the “stick-on” part of the headline but since you’re here, let me explain how this innovative nail polish appliqué is way better than “sticker polish” and “nail art stickers” that you can find online (I’m being completely honest, no overreactions). I lost my faith in nail products that market the same features, but I must say Incoco was able to win me over!
Your resident millennial was part of the lucky shoppers who were able to try this trendy nail polish appliqué at the Trendsetter’s Bazaar last June – that’s weeks before the opening of their boutique at SM Megamall in Ortigas. I was so close to hoarding but since I was trying to stick to a 2k budget that day, I only got one set which is already good for two applications (perks of having short nails).
I have so much to say about this brand, but let me just create a table so you can better compare it with the normal liquid nail polish:
Liquid Nail Polish
|Incoco Nail Polish Appliqué|
|Smell||Usual chemical-like smell||Toned down nail polish scent|
|Smudges||Possible||Not a chance|
|Layers||Multiple, until color/s can be seen||One|
|Drying||Can take more than 30 mins||None|
|Staying power||A few days to a week||More or less two weeks|
|Removal||Regular nail polish remover||

Buying one may be quite pricey for those who got used to cheaper nail polish bottles which are available for as low as P100. However, do note that Incoco also offers designs that are so intricately detailed, it almost feels like a promo package you can find in nail salons for almost P1000 (or more). They also have accents that come in four nail strips if you’re eyeing for a creative combination of designs. It won’t take you an hour to get your nails done.
To give you an idea, here’s how Incoco is applied:
I swear, as someone who needs to go to the nail salon on a weekly basis just to prevent my nails from cracking, I’d rather use Incoco than any other nail polish brands. However, removal may be an inconvenience since you need to use a regular nail polish remover to get rid of adhesive residue. This part may be the only downside, but note that the adhesive-like portion also prevents the polish from chipping off so it’s not entirely that bad. I’m in a love-hate relationship with this part.
Overall, I’m rating Incoco a 4.5/5! Best I’ve ever used so far.
