Incoco, Take 3 NOTD

Ever since discovering Incoco Nail Polish Strips, I've been loving doing manicures. I know that I just posted my festive, Christmasy NOTD, which was okay but I felt was a little too busy and too much for my preference. I had to change out of it and decided to use what I think is one of the more popular designs as I can't find it in stock very often. This one is called Ballerina Princess.


I thought that it was pink when I first bought it but after looking at it better, there is a lavender hue to it. After applying it to my nails, it shows up much more and it's so pretty! There is a hint of fine micro glitter in it, which isn't visible in the picture but shows up really nicely especially in natural sunlight.


I thought Golden Lattice from my first post was my favorite but I believe that Ballerina Princess is my favorite. It is a beautiful pink-lavender shade with light gradation.

I did find that this set of nail polish strips seemed to be of a little different consistency from the other two that I used. It felt thinner, seemed more tacky and stretched more easily. Because it seemed to be more tacky, it adhered to the nails really quickly and firmly. Also because it stretched more easily, it was a little more difficult to use the other half of the strip on the other hand. I had some problem with it crinkling. It's good to make a mental note that if the strips seem to be of this type of consistency, it might be better to not try to use one strip on two nails.

@Sheila--You should try it too. It's great for when you're in a rush and can't wait for regular nail polish to dry.

@Brianna--Oh, let me know if you do acquire any. I'd be interested to find out which one and your opinion on it too. Since you love purples, I think that Ballerina Princess is a must try for you. It's also subtle enough that I think it can be worn in an office setting.

So pretty! Is it easier to apply nail strips or to paint your nails by yourself?
