The other week, I was outrunning salespeople trying to touch me strolling through Henri Bendel and I came upon an area that was a cross between the sticker section of a kids’ store (remember those?!) and a nail bar. It was the Incoco Dry Nail Applique station.
I’d heard a lot about this nailpolish-as-sticker thing and tried some early versions, but in this case it was the salesperson that actually made me stop.
She had on gold glitter french manicure tips, which I had her do on one of my fingers. It was super simple and looked amazing. Henri Bendel has a great deal going on that includes this adorable kit plus 3 sets of nail stickers for $40.00.
The bottom line is, these things let you do stuff you could never do at home by yourself - but they do take a little time and if you have narrow nails like I do, you have to cut some of them down. I applied a clear coat of polish on top, which was trick I learned from The Coveted. This makes it looks a little more like a real manicure for some reason. The crazy thing is, this stuff looks and smells like nail polish - because it is!
