Happy Sunday polished world! I hope you all are doing well! I'm doing very well thank you! Today I am reviewing another Incoco Real Polish Applique! This one I am super excited about because, it is a nail art techique you will never, EVER see me try again. Okay, maybe I will try it one more time in the distant future, but not now.
That technique, the water marble. Oh how I hate water marble manicures. I don't hate how they look, I truly love the end result, I just HATE the process. I never can get the water temperature right, my polish seems to dry too fast on the surface, I can never manage to drag a design on top of the water, and when I dip my finger in it is guaranteed to come back out with a zillion air bubbles. It's just awful no matter what I do. Then at the end I have wasted a half a bottle of polish and a good two hours of my time.
Thanks to Incoco though, I was able to get a water marble on my nail without all the work! Let's take a look at their Berry Swirl design!
Cool right?! Look at that swirl! I wish, oh how I wish I could get this design on my nail using my polishes. Again to apply the appliques, I followed the directions provided by Incoco that came with the package and the YouTube tutorial on their website. I love that video to be honest. Sure reading directions are great, but for something like these appliques, I feel like being a visual learner is best.
If you remember, when I tried to apply On the Edge to my pinkie, I ripped the strip. These strips seemed less thick than On the Edge and were easier to pull. I didn't rip a single one until I got to my last nail, and I think that was my own fault because I was getting antsy and wanted to photograph them. As for why these seemed less thick than the others, I'm not sure. Maybe it's the design or colors? Who knows. Regardless, these were easier to work with.
It also was easier for me to file them since I was able to stretch them easier. When I stretched them they wrapped around the tips of my nails so when I went to file they just ripped off neatly right along the nail edge like you want.
Ahhh again, look at that swirl! Isn't it pretty!! My only issue with the design is my pointer finger. Honestly, this is something no one would ever see and I didn't notice until I was editing the photo, but at the top you can see where there was a weird printing error...maybe? I'm not sure what you would call it, but it reminds me of when I used to print my papers and the toner was running low. Seriously though, I never would have noticed it if it weren't for this photo. Who looks at a mani this close anyway in person?
