Color Street vs Incoco and Coconut: What’s the Difference?

Nail strips are becoming more and more popular. Color Street nails changed the game by making 100% nail polish strips. You can read all about them in Kristy’s full and honest review.

Did you know that Color Street has a sister company named Incoco? I sure didn’t! We got a comment from a reader on the Color Street Review post telling us that Color Street used to be Incoco so we decided to look into things.

Turns out she was right. (Not that we didn’t believe her but everyone should do there own research on things.) We looked into Incoco more and thought it would be fun to do a review/comparison of the two products but it turns out there are three products: Color Street, Incoco, and Coconut. So you get a review of all three.

First, I’ll go through the similarities and difference of the 3 products on paper. Then I’ll give you my review based on trying the nail polish strips myself.


Similarities Between Color Street, Incoco, and Coconut

There are a number of similarities between Color Street, Incoco, and Coconut nails. They are all made by the same company and founder Fa Park. Incoco Headquarters is located in Clifton, New Jersey, U.S.A where they produce all Color Street, Coconut, and Incoco nail strips.

I have seen lots of chatter about Incoco and Coconut being phased out of stores since Color Street is doing so well, but there’s no hard evidence that proves this. In fact, rumors have been going on about it for years. For now, they are in stores so lets get to know them better.

Nail Strip Packing

Did you know Color Street Nails has a sister company that sells their nail polish strips for less? We've tried out both Incoco and Coconut nails to see how they compare to Color Street. | We Three Shanes

If you look at the packaging side by side you can clearly see the similarities. However, they are not exact. Both Color Street and Incoco nail polish strips come with two nail prep pads and an mini emery board for help with application. 

The Coconut nail strips that I got from Walmart did not come with the nail prep pads. They only came with the emery board. Since nail prep is something that is really important for getting a great application with staying power, that’s a bit of a let down. You can always grab a cotton balls and rubbing alcohol to use on nails before applying Coconut nail art.

Nail polish Strip Ingredients

All three Incoco brands have the exact same ingredients, listed in the same order. This makes it pretty clear, at least to me, that they use the same formula for Color Street, Incoco, and Coconut. The nail polish strips themselves should be the same when it comes to application and durability. But are they? More on that in the review section below.

Application

Once out of the box, the nail strips themselves look the same. They all have a clear cover on each strip that needs to be removed before applying the polish strip. Application directions are pretty much the same.

Deferences between Color Street, Incoco, and Coconut

There are a lot of similarities between Color Street & it’s sister company Incoco, but there are some difference as well. 

Pricing Differences

There is a price difference between Color Street, Incoco, and Coconut:

Color Street nail strips cost between $11-13.  If purchasing Color Street online you’ll need to add $3 per order for shipping. Color Street also does donate money to charities when you purchase certain strips from them so keep that in mind.

If you take advantage of Color Streets deals like the buy 3 get one free then you’ll only spend between $9-10.50 ($3 shipping included) for each set you purchase. French manicure sets are $14 but they are buy one get on free which makes them $8.50 when you add the $3 shipping fee.

Incoco nail strips price changes based on where you buy them, but not by much. At Walmart they are $6.88 but at Ulta they are $7.99. You can purchase nail strips from both places online where you could end up paying shipping fees.

Coconut nail strips are $4.97 but you get less nail polish strips. Incoco and Color Street both give you 16 nail strips. Coconut only gives you 12. Again, you can buy them online but you’ll have to deal with shipping fees.

Purchasing

Color Street can be purchased online or from a Color Street stylist.

Incoco can be bought at Walmart or Ulta. You can purchase them in stores and online. Ulta has a better selection in stores but Walmart seems to have a better selection online. My Walmart only had the Coconut brand and not the Incoco nail strips. You’ll have to check your own Walmart to see what they sell in stores.

Coconut is exclusively sold by Walmart. You can find them in stores and online. 

Designs

Color Street has waaaaaaay more designs than Incoco and Coconut combined. Color Street has just over a hundred different styles you can choose from. They have multiple collections and categories of nail art to choose from including holiday, season, and awareness designs.

Incoco has 12 styles available at Ulta. That’s not a lot. They have no solid colors. Most nail strips have a pattern on them. Then there’s a couple of glitter and one French Tip. While there are a handful more nail strip styles online through Walmart, I’d be a bit reluctant to buy them. They seems to be old styles which means the nail strips could be fairly old.

I was able to find spots for all 12 styles at Ulta but they were out of a couple of them. My Walmart only had the French Manicure set and no other Incoco styles.

Coconut also has 12 styles to choose from. You’ll mostly find patterns from them as well, although they do have two solid styles. My Walmart only had 8 styles to choose from so it seems every store is different.

Websites

Color Street has the best website out of the three. They have a lot more information on the site plus you can actually order nail strips from the Color Street Site.

Both Incoco and Coconut have very similar looking websites but there’s not much substance to either of them. Both sites tell you a little about the product and show off the collections for the year but that’s about it. You can’t order nails from the site. There really isn’t much of a reason to check the sites out.


Color Street vs Incoco vs Coconut

While all that info is important to know, to me it all comes down to how well the nail strips perform? If I hand you a nail strip out of the package would you be able to tell which brand it came from? So let’s talk about how the brands actually compare to each other when it comes to wearing them.

Coconut Brand

I’ll start with the Coconut brand nails. There were only 6 styles to choose from because they didn’t carry all 12 designs and two were out of stock. I grabbed Have a Heart and was on my way. I love the price of Coconut nail polish strips! I’d be happy to rotate through the couple of the styles I like at that price.

I was excited to try them out but there are a couple of problems I found when applying Coconut strips.

  • There are less strips so finding the right fit for each nail can be a little tricky. I feel like that’s important when using nail strips.
  • They also don’t come with the alcohol pads to clean off your nails. If you don’t know to do this then you’re nail polish strips might not last as long.
  • The clear coat that is removed before putting the nail strips on would not come off properly. I had the same problem with every nail strip that came in the package. I was eventually able to peel all the pieces off but it was a serious pain.

  • Once I finally got the clear coat off, the polish strips themselves didn’t even work! I’m not sure what the problem was. Maybe it was an old set and they had started to dry out. The whole package was unusable. You can see my best attempt in the pictures below. The strips wouldn’t stick well at all and they ripped off unevenly.
Coconut nail strip review. Do Coconut nail polish strips work as well as their sister company, Color Street. | We Three Shanes

While I was really excited about the price of Coconut nail polish strips, they didn’t work. I realize this could be a fluke but it was still a complete waste of my money. 

Another Try for Coconut

Katie also tried Coconut nail polish strips but she didn’t have a problem with them. Here’s what she had to say about them:

“For the price I feel like they are pretty good but they are definitely not the same higher quality as Color Street. I had one nail that I couldn’t get lined up quite right so I had to pull it up to re-position it. That nail is now coming off. The Color Street ones can be readjusted and they will still stick. 

I was able to do my nails plus my daughters nails with the one set. These are great for kids. They don’t feel like a waste of money to use on my daughter, where as the Color Street nails are a bit expensive to use when I know she’s going to pick at them.

Did you know Color Street Nails has a sister company that sells their nail polish strips for less? Check out our honest review of Incoco and Coconut nails. | We Three Shanes

At the end of two weeks, my nails looked pretty good. There are some cracks in the polish but because the color was dark, the cracks aren’t super noticeable.” 

Coconut Conclusion

I might give the Coconut brand another try because they are so cheap but I’d probably only use them on my toe nails. 5 bucks for a cute summer pedicure is totally worth it to me. It’s great that you can pick up a set or two while doing your grocery shopping.

Sounds like these are a great option for kids and tweens as well. They would be great in an Easter basket or Christmas stocking.


Incoco Brand

We have two Ulta stores in our city and I only made it to one before they were closed because of Covid-19. Once stores open back up I’ll have to check out the selection of Incoco nails at both stores. Ulta does have all 12 styles in stores but like Walmart, some designs were out of stock.

There was a buy one get one 50% off special going at the time so maybe that’s why they weren’t able to keep stocks supplied. They had four designs that were out.

The Incoco set felt a lot like Color Street nail polish strips but they did seem slightly thinner. Not by much at all. They applied the same way and the nail strip sizes were the same as Color Street so finding a fit was a similar process.

My only complaint when it comes to Incoco was that the nail polish cracked in a pretty obvious way. I never had that problem with Color Street nails. These started to crack towards the end of the first week of wear. I’ve been able to keep some Color Street nails on for a month without signs of wear, just obvious regrowth.

Incoco Conclusion

If I shopped regularly at Ulta, I could see picking up a pair of these but I wouldn’t go out of my way to get a set. I will probably try a set of glitter nail polish strips on my toes this summer. You’d be less likely to see the cracks and nail polish strips do tend to last longer on toe nails. A French Manicure might also be worth a try for the money. 


Color Street for the Win!

In my opinion, Color Street nails are the winner in the Sister Company challenge. There is no comparison when it comes to the style choices Color Street has. The nail polish strips themselves seems to be better quality and last longer. In this case, you really do get what you paid for.

I also like how helpful Color Street Stylist are. You get much better costumer service with a stylist. If I had had a problem with my nail polish strips like I had with the Coconut brand, I know my stylist would have replace them for free. 

Like I said before, I will try Incoco and Coconut nails again for a pedicure. I’ll update the post once I’ve tried them out on my toes. I do think the price is great on both so they are worth a try.

The Best Nail Wraps (Colorstreet, Dashing Diva, Incoco)

I feel as if I am the ultimate nail polish or nail wrap tester. I am so freaking hard on my nails if I make it through 4 days it’s practically a miracle. I’ve tried quite a few different products and brands and within the past year have really been loving nail wraps. What’s that you say? They are basically applied like a sticker on your nail but there is no curing or drying time. They last much longer on me than any brand of nail polish I’ve tried and they come in fun colors, prints, and sometimes with accents! So which is the best brand? And what are the positives and negatives? Here are my thoughts with photos of my nails after a week.

Dashing Diva Gloss Gel

Dashing Diva has gel nail strips that come in solids or packs that contain accent nails. Price is typically under $10 for a pack and you can get about 3 manicures from it. Photos were after a week and a half of wear. The only wear issues I saw is after about 10 days the edge started to ripple a bit.

Pros:

  • inexpensive
  • lots of choices
  • available at Target, Ulta, Walmart, Sally Beauty, Walgreens, and online
  • will actually last 2 weeks with heavy wear
  • fun accent nails
  • high gloss
  • no dry time
  • no damage to nail with removal
  • never dry out

Cons:

  • can’t adjust width to help better fit your nail
  • must remove with oil and cuticle stick
  • can’t reposition
  • one nail strip per nail

The Best Nail Wraps (Colorstreet, Dashing Diva, Incoco)

Incoco

Incoco is a nail strip that is made from nail polish. It is made by the same company that makes Colorstreet and Coconut Nail Art. You can find it at Walmart, Ulta, and Target and cost about $7 or less for a set. A set will typically get you 2 manicures, especially if your nails are shorter.

Pros:

  • least expensive option
  • you can use one nail strip on 2 or more nails
  • comes off with regular nail polish
  • easy to adjust width to fit your nail so every strip can be used
  • no dry time
  • can reposition for first few minutes of application

Cons:

  • more difficult to find variety, but it is available online
  • they don’t apply as smoothly and can wrinkle
  • they sometimes crack or wear at tips
  • should seal any unused strip in bag with straightener and store in freezer because they do dry out over time
  • glitter seems to be thicker, easier to apply, and go on more smoothly
  • can take a while to remove so I recommend Offly Fast Nail Polish Remover

The Best Nail Wraps (Colorstreet, Dashing Diva, Incoco)

The Best Nail Wraps (Colorstreet, Dashing Diva, Incoco)

Colorstreet

Basically Colorstreet is the same product as Incoco, but with an MLM business strategy. They are nail polish, and the bottom is sticky. The price point is $11-14 per set and each set can get you about 3 manicures depending on the length of your nails.

Pros:

  • you can use one nail strip on 2 or more nails
  • many different options with seasonal and holiday strips
  • comes off with regular nail polish
  • easy to adjust width to fit your nail so every strip can be used
  • no dry time
  • can reposition for first few minutes of application

Cons

  • most expensive option
  • only available online
  • they sometimes crack or wear at tips
  • should seal any unused strip in bag with straightener and store in freezer because they do dry out over time
  • glitter seems to be thicker, easier to apply, and go on more smoothly, I didn’t have as much luck with the printed options
  • can take a while to remove so I recommend Offly Fast Nail Polish Remover

UPDATED 9/28/20:

Glamour Nail Wraps

I was sent Glamour Nail Wraps free to try. I had not heard of them before and had no experience with them, but wanted to try them out and include them here.

Pros:

  • inexpensive, can go on sale for less than $4 a pack
  • non-toxic (10-free)
  • easy and quick to apply
  • lots of print and pattern options
  • thicker than other nail polish wraps
  • don’t seem to crack after a week of wear
  • don’t wear much at tips of nails compared to Colorstreet
  • although base/top coat is recommended, I did not use either and they worked well
  • 1-2 manicures per package depending if you use 1 wrap on 2 nails

Cons

  • to use 1 wrap on 2 nails you need to trim silver tab yourself, it isn’t perforated to make it easier like Colorstreet and Incoco
  • not many solid color options
  • I don’t think the width of the strips are adjustable like Incoco or Colorstreet, I didn’t try trimming them with scissors, but that may work
  • really need to let them ‘cure’ a few hours before hard wear like washing dishes or taking a shower/bath, hot water can lift the nail polish strips in the first few hours
  • can take a while to remove so I recommend Offly Fast Nail Polish Remover
  • only available online

So overall what do I think? I like the Dashing Diva Gel for the durability. They last the longest and look the best by far after a week. Colorstreet is my second choice. Their glitter options are so pretty and they have a great selection. But I use Incoco when I can find it, too. They are all nice options and I get at least a week of wear from each of them. In comparison to nail polish, the best I’ve used was Essie Gel and that only lasts me about 4 days when it starts to crack or get small chips on the edges and it takes about an hour to do my nails including dry time. With each of the nail wrap options it only takes about 10 minutes. If you are hard on your nails, but love color on them I’d recommend any of these to see if you like them!

Color Street Nails, An Honest Review From A Non-Seller

 

I love having my nails done, I always have. It just makes me feel more put together. The problem I have had is that I am always running and so the dry-time for my nails drives me crazy.

 

I usually touch something too soon and smudge my freshly painted nails and have to redo one or two…every time. Patience is not my thing.

 

The effort that goes into painting my nails, only to have my polish chipping off with in a day or two is also aggravating. I am constantly using my hands, and have them in water a lot, and the polish just doesn’t hold up.

 

My sister-in-law started to have really cute nails all the time. So, I finally asked her about them. She said they were Color Street nails. I had never heard of Color Street.

 

I had tried another brand of nail strips that I really liked when they were on, but the application was such a pain and took me too long. I hardly ever took the time to put them on, which defeated the purpose.

 

My sister-in-law told me Color Street nails are much easier and didn’t require the heat and tweezer dance that the other popular brand required. Just like the other type, Color Street nails still lasted longer than polish.

 

I decided to give them a try. 

Now that I know the ends and outs of Color Street nail strips I’m going to share my honest thoughts about the product. You’ll get the pros and the cons in this Color Street nails review.

What Are Color Street Nails?

Since I hadn’t heard of Color Street, I wonder if you haven’t either. So let’s talk about the company for a minute:

Color Street’s birth place is NYC in 1984. Their creator, Fa Park, saw a woman struggling to polish her nails in a New York City cab. He thought that there has to be an easier way.

Upon discovering there wasn’t, he decided to make a better way. He experimented with lots of different techniques of putting polish on surfaces until he found his formula.

The Color Street nail strips are made with 100% real nail polish. They are not vinyl like other brands. This means they can be removed with nail polish remover. When done properly (with remover and they aren’t just pulled off) Color Street does not damage the nail like acrylics do. 

Fa started his company trying to make direct sales. He eventually realized to get them to the public the way he wanted he was going to have to go to the “party sale” platform.

One of the companies goals is to celebrate entrepreneurs. Those that decide to sell the nails are called Stylist. The nails are also manufactured here in the USA.

Color Street Sets

Nail polish strips aren't really a fresh idea but Color Street nails are one of the newer forms to appear on the market. People are raving about these stylish, 100% nail polish strips so I thought I'd share my review as a non-seller. | We Three Shanes

Each set has 16 double-edge strips (there is only one strip in the above photo because my SIL had already used the other strip). The prices range from $11-$15. They can be applied to fingernails and toenails. There are a wide range of solid colors, glitters, French tip, art designs, sports themed, seasonal and holiday styles.

Color Street has some great deals. French manicures are buy 1 get 1 free and everything else is buy 3 get 1 free. This really drops the price of the nails when you take advantage. Shipping is $3 for your entire order.

They’ve also come out with pedicure sets but I haven’t tried those yet. I just use the regular sets and get a manicure and pedicure out of them. It takes a little bit more work but it saves money.

Color Street Foundation

I really could talk about the Color Street Foundation in the pros section of this post but it deserves some real attention. Color Street Foundation supports multiple worthy organizations like the Gary Sinise Foundation,  The Autism Society of America, The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation,  Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer, and  The Breast Cancer Research Center. 

Since its inception in July of 2018, The Color Street Foundation has donated over $310,000 with a pledge of $1 million in future donations.  Knowing that Color Street is a company that gives back makes me want to support them even more.


How to Apply Color Street Nails

I want to give you just a brief description of application process for Color Street nails so you know a bit about how they work. Then, I’ll get to the pros and cons.

  1. Clean and prep nails before application. File nails and push cuticles back. Color Street makes this step easy by including alcohol wipes and a mini file in each Color Street set you order.
  1. Once nails are prepped you’ll need to size your nail strips to fit your nails. Finding the correct size for each nail is important for a better, lasting look. 
  1. Once you know which strip is going on your nail you will remove the plastic covering the strip.
  1. Start with your pinky and move your way across your hand, finishing with the thumb.
  1. The strips are sticky and slightly stretchy. Stick the nail polish strip onto your nail as close to your cuticle as possible and then smooth the polish onto your nail, working your way up and out. 
  1. Crease the strip over the edge of your nail, then use your thumb or file to remove the excess nail.

These are just the basic steps for application. If you want a more detailed explanation then check out Color Streets instruction page. There are plenty of tips and tricks for applying Color Street to your nails. My Color Street stylist shares things like that on her Color Street Facebook page if you want to check it out.


My Experience With Color Street Nails

Now I’ll tell you about my experience with the nails. I honestly love them. They make me feel more put together and professional without the much higher cost of having gels or acrylics put on.

 

Now, I don’t believe any product is perfect so I’ll do a breakdown of both the good and bad. I’ll start with my least favorite parts: 

 

Things I Don’t Like About Color Street

 

  1. While the Color Street website says their nails can last for up to 10 days I have noticed a big difference in the lasting time depending on the type of polish. For me, I can get away with wearing the glitter nails way longer than the solids. You just notice imperfections more with a solid nail.

 

Also, the way to make the Color Street nails last is by buffing the nail edges as they wear.  I will usually buff that down a little and they look pretty good. It’s a tiny bit of extra work.

2. The first couple applications are tricky, so you won’t be saving time just yet. Once you have done it a few times, you do get faster. 

 

  1. While you do just remove Color Street with nail polish remover, I have found cheap removers don’t get the job done (especially with the glitter nails which are the hardest to remove).

A lot of women buy professional strength nail polish remover from a beauty supply store. If you want to go the drug store route, I have found this remover by Cutex called Ultra-Powerful. It works if you really soak the cotton pad.

My SIL uses Onyx Professional to take off her Color Street Nails. Both are great options and neither are very expensive.

If you’re having problems with brittle nails after using Color Street it could actually be a problem with the acetone remover. We’ve had a couple of readers mention they switched to a mineral nail polish remover and the brittle nails went away. Try Mineral Fusion Nail Polish remover if you have this problem.

One of readers recently mentioned the use of nail clips to help in the removal process, especially with those pretty but pesky glitter nails. If you only wear nail strips occasionally then you probably won’t need them but if you year them regularly then they could be very helpful.

 

4. Here is the one thing I am in the middle about: the price. The nails typically run between $11-$14 depending on the style. While using Color Street is much cheaper than going to a salon for nails and fills, it’s still more expensive than a bottle of polish, that will, of course, cover your nails for longer. For me, the price is worth it for really stinking cute, professional looking nails…but will it be worth it for you?

 

There are a couple of hacks that can help with the pricing that I’ll talk about a little later. As mentioned above you can save more money when taking advantage of Color Street deals.

5. The nail strips will dry out once they’ve been opened. There are tricks you can use to close them back up to keep them fresh but that can be a pain. Check the comment section of this post for some of the helpful tips awesome readers have given for this particular problem.

6. Some people have a problem with their nails becoming brittle and cracked from using Color Street. Others have said using Color Street made it possible to grow their nails out for the first time in years because with out the nail strips their nails would break easily.

 

I can’t speak to other people’s experiences. I haven’t had any problems with nail breakage from using Color Street but I wanted to at least address it because it’s such a big discussion with these nail strips.

 

I think this is just one of those things you’ll have to try for yourself to see how your nails handle them. Remember that acrylic and gels can also damage nails so I’m not surprised that some people have trouble with Color Street too.

Make sure to give nails a little breather in between sets and consider getting a good cuticle oil to strengthen nails.

Things I Love About Color Street Nails

1. Color street nails are BEAUTIFUL! They have lots of styles and colors to choose from. My favorites are the glitter and design nails. While I could do a decent job painting plain nails using polish, I flat out sucked at trying to do things like Ombre, or designs.

 

Color Street takes care of that problem for me. They even have different designs for all major holidays. I had two different Christmas sets I wore during December that were fun and festive. I got loads of compliments.

2. They do last way longer than polish for me. I am not a person who has the time or patience for a base coat, regular coat, and top coat of polish. I am a one-coat girl.

 

This meant the polish really only looked good for about 2 days. I reminded myself of this the hard way.

 

My sister-in-law, who I used to get Color Street from, went on vacation and I forgot to get a new set of nails before she left. I had a work retreat that came up during the time she was gone so I had to use polish. It didn’t even last for the weekend retreat and looked a hot mess by the last day.

3. There is no drying time. After getting the application process down, you can get a pair of nails on pretty fast. Once they are on, that’s it…no waiting time. You can immediately make dinner, do your hair, even take a shower and your nails are good to go. No smudges or streaks because you didn’t wait long enough for them to dry. 

 

 

4. I have shorter nails so I can usually get two complete sets from one package of Color Street. My nails are short enough that I can use both sides of one nail strip, so the second set of strips can be saved for another whole manicure.

 

This actually brings the price down. If you can’t get a second manicure out of the strips you can get a pedicure out of them. That means your really getting a matching mani and pedi for $11- $14.

5. Speaking of a pedicure, Color Street lasts FOREVER on your toes. Normally toes take less abuse than your hands so they don’t wear as fast. If you use a glitter set on your toes, they look fabulous, but also they can usually last more than a month!

 

Summer’s just around the corner so remember this! Cute, shimmery toes in sandals that you don’t have to worry about for a whole month.

 

 

6. Each set comes with alcohol wipes and a file so you can prep your nails properly. We don’t realize how much residue our soaps and lotions leave on our nails. The alcohol wipes take all that off so you get a great application and those nails really stick. I love that Color Street thinks of this. They really want you to get the best application.

Would I recommend Color Street to a friend?

 

Absolutely! Is everyone going to become an addict like me? Maybe not. If you don’t get your nails done professionally or if you use nail polish regularly then the price might not be right for you. However, if you’re a “get your nails done” person then I think you really should consider giving Color Street a try.

 

  • It’s great for so many things.  I love it for everyday wear, but also for special things like holidays, work events, or even a hot date. Mommy daughter nails are really fun too. Because little girls nails are smaller you can usually get their nails done with the leftovers from your set.

  • Color Street would be ideal for vacation because the nails would last the entire trip. You wouldn’t have to worrying about bringing polish with you or buying some on vacation when your nails chip and crack.

 

 

  • Color Street even makes a fun gift for a family member or friend.  Think thank you gifts, bridesmaid presents, stocking stuffers or teacher appreciation gifts. There are lots of things that make Color Street a great product to try.

Final Thoughts on Color Street

 

I personally love Color Street nails. To me they are worth the price. When I was using regular polish, my nails were rarely done because it was such a pain for only 2 days of good looking polish. Now, it’s VERY RARE that I don’t have my nails done.

 

I write in front of clients a lot, so they are constantly looking at my hands. I like that my hands always look nice and put together now. I love having the designs I could never do myself on my nails. I like the fact that I can put the nails on and just go. No waiting for them to dry…and then smudging them because I didn’t quite wait long enough.

 

My stylist is a great friend of mine. If you would like to try Color Street out for yourself you can buy them at her website mycolorstreet.com/glamgeordan.  Even if you aren’t ready to buy yet, go to her site and see all the styles you have to choose from. There really is something for everyone and every occasion.

 

I haven’t been paid or given free products in return for this post. I honestly love Color Street. Since I am so happy with my Color Street nails I wanted to share them with you! I am grateful to my SIL for sharing them with me and I wanted to pass that along to you.

What's the Deal with Those Nail Polish Strips Your Friend is Selling on Facebook?

There's nothing more disheartening than getting a fresh manicure and promptly ruining it on the drive home from the salon. That brief moment is enough to make a grown woman cry. Why me?!, we yell to the heavens.

But then, just as you're rubbing off the shame with acetone-soaked cotton balls, a Facebook friend posts about how to avoid this nail fiasco, once and for all. It's by using Color Street nail strips—and she can sell it you.

Color Street makes 100% nail polish strips that are supposed to be easy to apply and last for roughly two weeks. The strips—which come in countless colors, patterns, and finishes—range between $11-$14, which will provide about two manicures if used conservatively. (As in, if you're skilled enough to not waste any strips during the first application.) The company offers classic solid nail colors, fun patterns like ombré and snakeprint, and festive holiday collections.

Just like the Rodan + Fields reps all over your social media feeds, you'll see Color Street ambassadors promoting their wares on Facebook and Instagram. Hashtag-heavy posts are the new in-person pitches, and a personal e-commerce website is now used in lieu of a clunky box pulled from the trunk of a saleswoman's car.

Similarly to Avon and Mary Kay saleswomen of your mother's generation—you know, the ladies who'd turn up at your door with your next must-have lipstick—and to the aforementioned Rodan + Fields army of our newer digital era, Color Street relies on independent saleswomen to get the word out, sell the product, and bring on potential new saleswomen. (Fresh blood, as we like to call it.)

Any company structured like this touts an appeal so universal that you can't really argue: "Want to be your own boss?" Well, for a stay-at-home mom with a crazy schedule or those in the workforce who desire a side hustle, that's about good as gold.

As far as Color Street nails application, you simply peel it off the packaging, press the adhesive side onto your nail, and file off the excess length at the tip of your nail. For those wanting to experiment with nail designs, you can cut the strips and layer them together for a geometric, striped, or half-moon look.

If you mess up your fresh mani more often than not, or if you loathe making a trip to the nail salon, these strips might be worth a try. If you're not so much into the whole pitchy thing on Facebook (oftentimes by way of someone you went to high school with a million years ago), the strips might not be your groove. To each her own!

Can I get a sample of your product before I buy them?

We are always more than happy to help you find the right type of strip that is right for your lifestyle and your budget.

We carry 13 different "Types" of strips rather than just one type, because we like to have something for everyone.  Not everyone has the same size fingernails, the same budget, or the same lifestyle.
