Review: Incoco Color Theory Collection (plus, nail art!)

(Press samples and affiliate links** ahead!)

Hello!

It's been a while since I brought you some Incoco Nail Appliques, and I have a few selections from a a fun collection to get back into the groove: Incoco's Color Theory collection, which plays with the concept of subtle color blocking with fun summer hues.


Let's start with Incoco Bay Breeze, which has a periwinkle-blue base with iridescent glitters:

I've told you before how much I adore Incoco's glitter wraps. They're sooooo much easier to remove than glitter polishes, and they're a fast, easy base for awesome nail art. This screamed out for flowers, so I stamped a fun pattern from MoYou London's Flower Power 08 plate; I stamped with Sally Hansen Mint Sprint and Co-Bolt Blue:

Next up is Incoco Color Theory, a set of bold, colorblocked designed on a tan background:

I love how the tan give a more subtle feel to the color blocking. I also love the retro '80s feel of this, and in fact, in the '80s, I belonged to a children's bowling league, and the shoes they had at the bowling alley looked soooo much like this. So I couldn't resist adding a little bit of a bowling shoe touch to these with Bundle Monster BM420 and Messy Mansion Carbon stamping polish:

Next is Incoco Double Vision, a fun kaleidoscope-type pattern with a range of reds, pinks, purples and blues:

I think this is so pretty, and has such a feminine feel, not an easy trick with colorblocking. For this one, I added played up the femininity with a coat of fine holographic glitter, Spellbound Nails Comet, to add to the holographic-type effect:

And finally, we have Incoco Summer School, a fun mix of colors, lines, and geometics:

I love the way these play with each other, and I was feeling them just the way they were, so I didn't do any nail art on top of them *gasp*! I know, right? From the package I wasn't sure how well they were going to go together, but they charmed me once they were on.


I think this is a fun collection, just on its own merits, or as a base for nail art. Color blocking and geometrics go perfectly with summer in my opinion! You can find these and other designs in the collection on Incoco's website, and you can find selected Incoco designs at your nearby Walgreen's, and now at Walmart!


Happy wrapping,
M.

  4. I really like those patterns! It would be quite a lot of work to do those with tape.

  7. I'll just echo some of the above comments - the bowling shoes ones are so adorable! But my fave is pink/purple set, too. And your application of these is just perfect.
